The Dove – Written August 2007 (Aged 32)

The Dove

i have watched –
the love turn to hate
i have sat out your round
i love you too
it’s the feeling and the sound
why does hate –
flower from love
why is it built up
why is it so easily smashed
tying lead weights to the dove
just to watch it crash

James Garratt – August 2007
