I Dive In – Written August 2010 (Aged 35)

I Dive In

they seem to know
what you want
i just swerve
from side to side
occasionally i find –
pools in another persons eyes

i dive in
and try to swim inside
they take me to –
place i have seen before
i am torn
but every new experience
is being born

i dive in
the mantle is steep
i am sharing the nights
as they creep
i swerve though –
just before lover’s leap

James Garratt – August 2010
