The Balance Between My Dreams and Reality – Written September 1999 (24)

The Balance Between My Dreams and Reality

the balance between my dreams and reality
as i get older i lose sanity
where it was just my virginity
the balance between my dreams and reality
is the difference between colours
between black and white and shades of magenta
as i got older i lose my way
but the adventures of the wild
are learned from the paths from which i stray
the balance between my dreams and reality
it is harder than i could ever have imagined
i look for my brains and wonder where they have gone
and it is my head that needs to be examined
as i get older, my relationships turn to pictures in sepia
but they are not always so neatly framed
the balance between my dreams and reality
it is so difficult to come to terms with
it is the balance between sane and insanity




James Garratt – September 1999
