Yearn For More – Written August 2010 (Aged 35)

Yearn For More

i am a contradiction in terms
i throw the ball
but do i ever learn?
i see it coming
but it is hard to turn
i found someone
i had longed to know
but their mind collapsed
and i had to let it go
sometimes you can not go back
and strive to move forwards
i caught a case of –
feeling terminally bored
people too often are like a book
one i have already read –
a thousand times before
i go through the motions
we are in fact all very bored
i cannot apply soothing lotions
only yearn for more

James Garratt – August 2010
