Euphoric State – Written December 2003 (Aged 28)

Euphoric State

i have gone from euphoric state
to a mental state
from early starter
to something quite late
slowly they have chipped away –
at the stone
till there is only one piece left –
and it is one piece all alone
comfort these days –
seems harder to source
need more oil –
to open these doors
my friends need to enjoy –
having me around
i did not need any excuses
we were always friendship bound
these days –
i am in a social wheelchair
with obligatory stops
the unnerving stares –
i just do not know what to do
or how to keep up with this increasing fare

James Garratt – December 2003
