I Crave Us – Written Tuesday 14th February 2012 (Aged 36)

I Crave Us

i crave us
it has kept out the rain
the wind and the cold
this is the saddest story
i have ever been told
this time,
burdened as it is
by its lack of reason or rhyme
means i crave us
i crave our solid touch
that clutch,
that hold
this is the hardest of stories
i have ever been told
this time which feels strange
a vertical mountain to climb
it is why i crave us

James Garratt – February 2012
