Newly Painted Doors – Written Monday 30th March 2009 (Aged 34)

Newly Painted Doors

looking back –
seems unreal
a melody of how i feel
someone else living –
someone else paying the bill
looking forwards
i see a selection –
of newly painted doors
some with a lock
some seem bored
who was that person
that looks like me
peering from photographs
drawing in the sea
moving forwards
realising that as i progress
the past you create
becomes a mirror
for you to reflect upon
here so suddenly –
then it is gone
and here i am –
looking at what went before
facing forwards –
looking at newly painted doors

James Garratt – Monday March 30th 2009
