I Know You Would Hold Me – Written November 2010 (Aged 35)

I Know You Would Hold Me

i know
you would hold me
hold me –
in your comforting arms
and –
i know for a second
it would bring comfort
and warmth i need
but in my life
i have to stand on my feet
no one person can
make you complete
it takes a selection
from life’s often strange –
seemingly mad delicatessen
i know
you would hold me
and i could –
close my eyes
and see only the demons
leap and then fly
but i have to –
stand on my own




James Garratt – November 2010
