The Clock Inside (Originally Untitled) – Written November 2010 (Age 35)

The Clock Inside

no one really knows
the clock inside
how it ticks by
and too many people
have passed –
through my poetry
like water through a sieve
and despite –
the battleground scars
i still offer my carriage
and a journey going far
so as you pass –
through this written piece
do you ever think
this is the underneath
this is the world –
of my deeper inside
the stones and the rivers
the books and the shivers
the thoughts
and all the clothes
the many tricky pony
no one really knows
about the clock inside

James Garratt – November 2010
