Surface Cracks – Written March 2009 (Aged 34)

Surface Cracks

too often,
the surface comes loose
the inside exposed
like ill fitting shoes

too often,
people cover up the cracks
head down
no looking back
but it seeps
and it causes decay
the persistent tick
that will not go away

too often,
people try to hide
like the child
that covers it eyes
thinking no one can see them




James Garratt – March 2009
