Relief – Written Monday 31st August 2020 (Aged 45)


i feel like a weight
has been lifted off
these middle aged shoulders
as if someone has lifted
a two ton boulder
as if,
someone has evaporated the load
and stopped my shoulders
becoming over bowed

i feel a sense of utter relief
has, flooded my brain
like an intoxicating medicine
it has quelled my pain
and restored my sense
as if,
it has helped with my sentences
and a weight
has been truly lifted

James Garratt – Monday 31st August 2020
