All Those Years Ago – Written Saturday 18th October 2014 (Aged 39)

All Those Years Ago

we talk about
all those years ago
it is like,
the past is a film
of program’s we once saw
left as it is now
behind a locked door
i know what it means to me
but we throw away the key
everybody has to reinvent
who they are
they make only casual reference
to who they once were
but they are only glances
we talk about
all those years ago
the stories,
a wallpaper for a room
that cannot be re entered
minds now must fix on the present
and they must be centred




James Garratt – Saturday 18th October 2014
