An Open Heart Policy – Written August 2010 (Aged 35)

An Open Heart Policy

she finds it difficult
love comes –
with complications attached
strike it up
strike that match
she finds it hard
to love without caution
strike it up
strike that match
wondering, if they were to go away –
would they ever come back
do we ever really value –
what people put themselves through
when they commit –
to an open heart policy
the surface can be all smiles
she finds it difficult
she, in her own way
has fallen in love with you
i just look to the future
and wonder what you will do




James Garratt – August 2010
