I Fear the Illusion – Written November 2012 (Aged 37)

I Fear the Illusion

i am not as good as you think
i like to dream
i like the way dreams move
and the way dreams drink
i like the way –
they always choose cocktails
that make you think
i like the way –
the alcohol content always feels high
i like the way –
dreams say hello –
even when they say goodbye
so this is an encounter
perched as a tear from the corner of my eye
i am not as good as you think
and truthfully, i cannot lie




James Garratt – November 2012
