Cobweb – Written Sunday 19th September 2021 (Aged 46)


i listen as you talk about your dad
and i see you caught –
in their mental health web
wounds do not heal
wounds have always bled
and honesty is covered in cobwebs
your dad has a bible
but it’s only the words he has said
such poor attachments
and disorganisation
such trauma
continues to carry so much clout
it is hard now,
to know where to begin
they always said you fell out
but i say the truth is, you never fell in

James Garratt – Sunday 19th September 2021
