Stars- Written Tuesday 31st May 2011 (Aged 36)


i am not a star
a flickering bulb
i am being hard on myself
or maybe,
this is self deprecating humour
like perfume,
that hangs on a rumour
i am a star to you
hanging there like a trapeze act
just waiting to swing
life is an event
a bottle at least you must bring
let’s have a fling
where we meet up and pair
never part and drive each other spare
be crazy together
be stars
be stars for each others

James Garratt – Tuesday 31st May 2011
