Structure – Written November 2014 (Aged 39)


they spend time away
give me a family
structure and all
i wonder
when these children learnt to be cruel
well, we all fall
i have seen the side
that side,
that face,
when you are caught in truthful light
when it burns
when t burns bright
i wonder what it means
when there are dreams
that fall away
and what does it mean to be left holding on
to former days

James Garratt – November 2014
