Never Satisfied

They said when he was a child his
father bought him a boat and named it,
Never Satisfied.’

Forward twenty years and we’ve got
the dictionary definition of the 
American dream, hole for a heart,
multiplying dollars, traveling the
world, meeting women, drinking,
‘Never satisfied.’

He never ended up with the woman
he fell for.
He frequently asked about others
You could see it in his eyes,
like a ghost lingering behind the
curtains, begging for some form of
Never Satisfied.’

I never had an answer for him,
I don’t believe any of us did. 
How can you console someone that feels
they missed out on life when you’ve
got everything they want and yet
you’re still,
Never Satisfied‘. 

Irony is a bitter taste.
