Companionship – Written Monday 9th November 2015 (Aged 40)


being bold and exciting
it is overrated,
ordinary, calm, companionship
that is me elated
draw on art,
and home made clothes
pretend sexual fetishism
it just says to me that they are alone
caught between,
a fear of pre defined middle age
and a youth,
who they feel has escaped from its cage
of course neither is real
it is just a constant tug of war
it helps no one
the over elaborate search to be, ‘someone’
when in fact you already are

James Garratt – Monday 9th November 2015
