Societies Great Big Lie – Tuesday 1st February 2011 (Aged 35)

Societies Great Big Lie

love comes to me
delivered by horse and cart
i haul it down the stairs
i place it in a boat
excitement comes to me
it comes in fits and starts
it comes with a destination
and then it pulls me apart
friends come to me
with barriers from the past
they beat drums
that are time with my heart
and, as i trip through –
the situations in my life
i cling to balloons
and societies big lie

James Garratt – Tuesday 1st February 2011
