It Grows – Written Wednesday 21st July 1999 (Aged 24)

It Grows

everyday it grows
without water
without sunlight
deep within me
as a part of me
makes me reflect on the soul
everyday it grows
beyond my control
but it is not visible
it is not ivy
it is not vines
everyday it grows
everyday i pine
i start to shake
and i wonder where it is leading
i am full of it,
full of this feeling
and, it is not leaving

James Garratt – Wednesday 21st July 1999
