The Sound of Realisation- Written Tuesday 7th October 2008 (Aged 33)

The Sound of Realisation

i have been taken by surprise 
tackled to the ground 
pushed down life’s hill 
got caught in British Bulldog 
taken over by something I feel 
found my horse and then my cart 
and fashioned all four wheels 
i have been rumbled 
my emotions completely changed 
the dice have really tumbled 
and rolled to reveal my name 
i am now readily fumbled 
and I feel like an insurance claim 
i have been taken by surprise 
i have found her darling sweet make up 
and the sunlight to my eyes 
the tide that turned in the Estuary mud 
the sound of realisation 
as it hits the ground with a heavy thud 
the complete claim 
of the most personal touch
