Certain Highs – Written Tuesday 31st may 2011 (Aged 36)

Certain Highs

there are certain highs i need
new ventures, new doors
running to the edge
not getting bored

there are certain lows i can leave
down moments,
catastrophes that push me around
that play long
but with the most hollow of sounds

let’s go
outwards bound
climbing trees
like hope changes a season
and replaces the leaves
you mean everything
if not already
but then in so many ways you already do
that is –
why i am emotionally devoted to you

James Garratt – Tuesday 31st May 2011
