A Bath Full of a Thousand Dreams – Written Monday 2nd June 2008 (Aged 33)

A Bath Full of a Thousand Dreams

your softness is what attracts me
however,
your ego and pride
i just cannot abide
and i must confess that –
it pulls the plug –
on a bath full of a thousand dreams
it is where the party frock –
comes apart at the seams

your softness touched me in so many ways
but,
your ego and pride
i just could not feel inside
the way you confess so easily
to being the best
it is where the tidy room of dreams
suddenly looks an almighty mess
it is where human expression and freedom
suddenly finds itself under house arrest




James Garratt – Monday 2nd June 2008
