Drift – Written Sunday 29th August 2010 (Aged 35)


some people have a plan
some people have a script
some even take my hands
and have outstanding wit
some people just slide
some people have a map
some even truly understand
and some never come back
some people have an idea
some people set up camp
and some say, yes please
some though, say no thanks
some people look inside
tip-toe into my rooms
tell stories that stroke my soul
read me truly internal poems
that give wonderful new meanings
some like me seem to enjoy –
just being here on the drift
i am only waiting for those
i always truly miss
