I Am Prone to Veering off Course (Originally Untitled) – Written March 2013 (Aged 38)

I Am Prone to Veering off Course

i am prone –
to veering off course
and,
you need a steady –
boyfriend / partner / husband / life partner!
i understand
nervous hands
and the stability –
is not stable
lost in my tales of the unexpected
and those byline fables
and,
i understand that this is alarming
highs and lows –
it comes home to roost
perhaps,
all that drinking –
and desperate childhood sinking
perhaps all those emotional ships –
that never set sail and explored the seas
maybe,
they did the true damage to me




James Garratt – March 2013
