I Lost Myself – Written June 2011 (Aged 36)

I Lost Myself

i lost myself
in some kind of avalanche
in a tea room
in an old time dance
reaching out
offering an olive branch

i lost myself
in a pickle jar
in some kind of avalanche
missed a connection
just by chance
headed to the future
and the love of another

i lost myself
in the arms of a lover
she crept into a dream
and she stood there
she recreated –
the tension of a nightmare

i lost myself
in some kind of avalanche
in a hot air balloon
in life’s remotest ranch




James Garratt – June 2011
