She Wears Dancing Shoes – Written Saturday 26th July 2008 (Aged 33)

She Wears Dancing Shoes

she wears dancing shoes
i write in many hues
she smiles at the mirror
collecting crossword clues
she takes no chances
and there is nothing to choose
i liberate my insecurity
i let it play outside
and then i let it run free
i found her beat
and it sat right inside of me
she plays on the swings
i write so many things
and to the rockface of hope
we all seem to cling
my white knight charger
i have heard them sing

James Garratt – Saturday 26th July 2008
