The Charlatans And The Witches – Written Sunday 30th August 2009 (Aged 34)

The Charlatans And The Witches

i am going to purge myself of these demons
they ride on horseback,
and try to control my feelings
i am going to sit here until i stop aching
till reality becomes acceptable
and i stop faking
i am going to be stronger –
than those with no real agenda
other than to drag me down to their ocean floor
i am going to stay away –
from the charlatans and witches
those ghosts with all of their personal glitches

James Garratt – Sunday 30th August 2009
