This Is About You – Written August 2010 (Aged 35)

This Is About You

this is about you
you, who hangs onto my frame
and finds me kissing you
i could let you in
after all i am just a field
and it is not like –
i have a harvest yield

this is about you
and those things inside
how you have struggled
and contemplated being alive
how you had to pick the bullies out
from the tears in your eyes

this is about you
i could dive into your looks
i left and rewrote –
two dozen of my favourite books
i stole a train a thought
and i never even looked

this is about you
the way we almost collide
in the rain soaked streets
where emotions start to slide
and we both look for seats
in the most amazing

James Garratt – August 2010
