Friend and Lover – Written Monday 6th October 2008 (Aged 33)

Friend and Lover

i will suffer the indecision
and i will be romanced by anxiety
i will be courted by change
and all this will be worthwhile
just to hear you utter my name
i will live every moment
i will listen to every new sound
i will hunt down my loss
i will put out the fires on my fear
i know it will all be worthwhile
when i hold you near
i will live out these strange days
where nothing is as it seems
where the egg timer tumbles
neither one way or another
to know you,
that you are my friend and lover
and truly, there is no other

James Garratt – Monday 6th October 2008
