The Switch – Written Friday 6th August 2010 (Aged 35)

The Switch

it is like a switch
it flicks
and suddenly –
you are in another place
but you –
want to get back over there
but you cannot
the switch has flicked
and everything has changed
the room you loved
suddenly rearranged
the love, not so eager
to make a claim
the sunshine is shifting
to make way for the rain
something they did,
something they said
somehow, it flicks a switch
inside your head

James Garratt – Friday 6th August 2010
