Written Across Your Eyes – Written May 2010 (Aged 35)

Written Across Your Eyes

i remember those days
they are written across your eyes
part of me wonders –
if this is a pain inside
the wish –
to go back to a time –
when you felt your were alive
but you never say –
how you really feel
but i can guess
because i have learnt to over the years
i remember those days
of course,
we were a lot younger
and a lot thinner
all of now is just desert
i understand why they must shimmer
it is harder to wear the shirt
when is hope is all but a glimmer
and all this work,
does not match the days –
when it did matter at all
i remember those days

James Garratt – May 2010
