Further Out to Sea – Written July 2021 (Aged 46)

Further Out to Sea

i wonder –
if you are further out to sea
and,
further away from me
further away –
than either of us might expect
i wonder –
if you are struggling with the depth
i know, i know,
but just try and take deep breaths
and i promise,
i will try my best
even though,
i know, i am riddled with holes
from those leaks that happened years ago
and i know,
when my best has not been good enough
but i am concerned
that the situation we are in
is for worse –
than either of us could admit
i know you are sinking
i will throw you a life buoy
and i will try to make it meaningful
but i feel cursed by just being me
i wonder –
if you are further out to sea
and,
further away from me
and i wonder what is it i can do
to make you feel wonderful and healthy
take your mental health,
and ensure it is always wealthy




James Garratt – July 2021
