Reinvent My Wheel – Written Tuesday 23rd June 2009 (Aged 34)

Reinvent My Wheel

the self destruction
the effortless drive
the emotional suicide
the tearing up of scrolls
the redundant inside
the needing hold
the plummet downwards
basking in a relentless cold
onwards and upwards
time to remould
reinvent my wheel
get a grip on myself
finally start to feel
cut away dead flowers
take out poisonous weeds
come up for air
and at least, breathe

James Garratt – Tuesday 23rd June 2009
