Searching for you

Her

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.
