Love and Living – Written Monday 2nd November 2015 (Aged 40)

Love and Living

i have offered my thoughts to you
and i have talked about the time
the train hurtled forward at full pelt
i have looked back
and i have wondered why
i have not quite reached for the sky
maybe the search for attention
and the need to be the centre of
has not gone quite as well as it could
i wonder what it means,
out here or in here
there is a dancefloor and we watch
the couples perform their waltz
occasionally taking on new roles
love and living is not always schmaltz

James Garratt – Monday 2nd November 2015
