Colour Scheme of Your Mind – Written April 2014 (Aged 39)

Colour Scheme of Your Mind

what is your secret
is fine
for the artiste
for societal cool
for pretend play days
and attending sunday school
what is your secret
is the person inside
what are you scared of
who is your hostage taker
your enemy within
the lonely sounds of, ‘later’
is fine
for joint bank accounts
and mortgage applications
for, ‘adult decisions’
and double date situations
but who is,
the demon
that lurks inside
that is in charge of interior design
who puts up the curtains behind your eyes
choose the colour scheme of your mind
and who gnaws away at the inside

James Garratt – April 2014
