Sculptor of Lives – Written Wednesday 16th June 2010 (Aged 35)

Sculptor of Lives

experience is a sculptor of lives
love is a painter
which captures the inside
painting in a variety of styles
they are writers
writing your biography
and family,
is a genius of photography
capturing you,
in several different lights
sense of humour must have a bite
and down days,
must be accepted like the night
opinions do not make me
they do not carve me out of stone
unless you truly have me,
you will have never known
lovers are letters often written
marking out the landscape
with times when we were smitten

James Garratt – Wednesday 16th June 2010
