Consumption – Written September 2017 (Aged 42)

Consumption

what scares me –
is that one day –
the roof will collapse
it will,
cave in completely
what scares me –
is not the fragility
but how long the roof remains
i always feel –
the drop is far too near
i always fear
that one day –
my problems will consume me
and there will be no way out




James Garratt – September 2017
