Dreaming of Houses – Written March 2003 (Aged 28)

Dreaming of Houses

dreaming of houses
the sort,
that we would like to own
ones where the fireplace roars
and the empty walls,
do not make you feel alone
and i have to ask,
am i just a machine,
the sort that is designed to engineer –
other peoples dreams
one to be held up against the light
so my amber has no imperfections
even if they be only slight
i cannot not your dreams happen
no, not on my own
if it is up to other people,
it will always be a disappointment

James Garratt – March 2003
