Expressions of Obsessions – Written October 2008 (Aged 33)

Expressions of Obsessions

a certain amount of pity
an obsessive roll
it was not just me
your suitcase –
expressions of obsessions
that bubble of anger
when loneliness –
crept around your front door
perspective, foolish lies
worrying obsessions
these days,
interesting has lost its appeal
the very best deal
you passport
a place called fantasy
i feel
the absolute loss of reality

James Garratt – October 2008
