Perhaps – Written Tuesday 7th October 2008 (Aged 33)


perhaps we were both guilty
perhaps we tried too hard
perhaps our rocket reached its height
then we had to part
who knows the reasons why
we could debate it for hours
look at it from every angle
mourn it, and then lay some flowers
wondering when it went away
when our relationship became a fatality
perhaps we could celebrate it
and have a party
talk about all the good times
the feelings we felt
and the places we saw
the things we dreamt
and the way we laughed
the way we could grow
perhaps others are the judge an jury
but then, what do they know?

James Garratt – Tuesday 7th October 2008
