We Become a Vine (Originally Untitled) – Written July 2009 (Aged 34)

We Become a Vine

your pain
is just a mirror to mine
your tears
are personal to you
but their truthful sound
is familiar and not new
your vulnerability
is not different to mine
bound together
we become a vine
you need help
so do i
my strength is no less
and no more
your fragility
is just a mirror to mine
you reach out to me
i reach out to you
in this place and space
it is all i can do

James Garratt – July 2009
