Repaired – Written Monday 15th October 2001 (Aged 26)

Repaired

so you want to be a part
a part of the life,
that you chose not so long ago
not to be a part of
and what part would you like to be?
i am not so sure
perhaps you could be the spanner
the one we find in the works
because for love, i know we both clamoured
but in the end, we only get hurt,
perhaps you could be the brakes
because i do remember the crash
the one that seemed to be our forte
so now you want to be part of the engine
the engine you dismantled and took to bits
but it is already being repaired
and now there is nowhere for you to fit
the cockpit has been modified
and now there is nowhere for you to sit




James Garratt – Monday 15th October 2001
