I Had to Climb Down – Written January 2002 (Aged 26)

I Had to Climb Down

did you see me,
i had to climb down
i did not like the taste
i did not like the gloss
once, we were different
now it is all so fast
now, we hang onto to handrails
it is another year
watching the shadows of your tail

did you see me,
i was like a kite
i was down and depressed
but i did not want to fight
do not let your dreams be repossessed
i had to move over
there was not enough space
i had to find a smile for my face
do not let it go
do not let it got to waste




James Garratt – January 2002
