Dust Laden Mirror – Written November 2002 (Aged 27)

Dust Laden Mirror

this is not the time
to drown in ice cool drinks
or shatter,
cheap dust laden mirrors
that only serve –
to steal your reflection
this is not the time
to sit by the fire door
and melt into the disturbance
that burns within their eyes
i have got a reason
and i am truly haunted
i shake in the moonlight
but this does daunt me
they can tell me who i am
but this is not the time
i am here and i understand
that this is not the time

James Garratt – November 2002
