Still Walking With the Past – Written Wednesday 26th August 1999 (Aged 24)

Still Walking With the Past

still walking with the past
holding its hand
and surveying the wreckage
which i hasten to add, is vast
it seems to be scattered over miles
and the other day,
as i looked through the wreckage
i found your smile
and then i found you
you still had those strong hands
that grip too tight
that stranglehold on my emotions
as it puts a hold on my life
thought i had dispensed of the past
if not in black plastic bags
at least to the back of the cupboard
to be reflected upon when i feel sad
times when i feel not so adored
but there it was, older and wiser
still looking at me with sad eyes
the almost unwelcome provider
that seems so closely linked with the inside




James Garratt – Wednesday 26th August 1999
