To Ask For More

Fall asleep in a bed of cliche,
dream of star-crossed lovers and underdogs.
It’s not so ordinary
until you’ve seen this all before.

You’re left asking for more,
craving something fresh and new
and that too will resemble something
from a time or two.

The unprecedented figments
soon fade into history
and we will be damned
before we repeat that again.

But can an idea truly be new
after all this time
of dancing around subtle changes
in a melody or a rhyme?

Or has it been so long since
we’ve seen something like it
that we just smile on and
pretend we can all forget?
