Time to Wake Up – Written Tuesday 22nd August 2006 (Aged 31)

Time to Wake Up

it was an alarm call
called to my senses
tired of emotional destruction
and jumping fences
seeing what i could not see
the hand,
so real in front of me
and suddenly like the rain
which had blinded me for so long
just stopped
and i could again
it was impossible to conclude
what i had done
and a warm wave
washed over my shingle beach
those things i could touch
that had previously been out of reach
it was an alarm call
time to wake up
