1. Searching for you


She don’t want me

Scruffy old me

I’m too skinny, no muscles

I watch as she flees


That other guy, he’s fitter

Look at his body, looks

I’m always reading comics

Or my head’s in a book


Not interesting, not at all

Like watching pain dry

Just plain old boring

I’m not gonna live a lie


She doesn’t notice my hair

My clothes as I try to impress

It seems just like

I’m trying to pass her test


I’m sure we like all the same things

Many common interests

If she could only know me

She wouldn’t care about the rest


Swallow my overwhelming fear

I’m approaching her, try to talk

I freeze solid in front of her

She smiles, my heart starts to stir


Taken from my latest poetry book: Searching for you by Philip Lister

Searching for you is a collection of poetry about love, heartbreak and happiness. A raw journey looking at our search in life to find ourselves and that special someone.
