As Real As My Breath – Written Tuesday 28th September 1999 (Aged 24)

As Real As My Breath

i cannot wait for your touch
it will be as real as my breath
and as sudden as my death
i cannot wait for your feelings
that have been encased too long
i imagine that you will be so real
it cannot be anything less
as real as my breath,
as sudden as my death
i cannot wait for the time
the touchdown of feet
the feeling of nothing less
the feeling of your skin
it will be as real as my breath,
and as sudden as my death




James Garratt – Tuesday 28th September 1999
