Flag – Written Tuesday 31st May 2011 (Aged 36)


you have put up balloons
in my, ‘soul’
you have partied with my feelings
you are my cistine chapel
so please paint my ceilings

i write you books
full of words
and i need held with the bends
a relationship with your curves
i need a lover type of friend
i need someone to receive me
because i have messages to send

that i need to flag up
i need you to fly my flag
let’s head for better places
let’s pack our emotional bags
and let’s be rollercoaster lovers
chasing, facing,
peeping from under our covers

James Garratt – Tuesday 31st May 2011
