Empire – Written Wednesday 5th November 2008 (Aged 33)


the fall of my empire
the burning of a past –
on life’s great pyre
the rise of my armies
the charge of my confidence
watch now,
as it comes over the hill
and without any indifference
and believe me,
i embrace how i feel
decorating my days
with multi coloured emotions
ones that never truly fade
i take no prisoners
not even dreams
i take up select positions
directed by my queens
this is the rise of my world
which has come about
from the fall of my empire

James Garratt – Wednesday 5th November 2008
