The Catt Box

'My Albatross'


What lies beneath my distant stare...

Beneath that cloak...

Beyond that hair...?


What thoughts embrace my wandering mind..?

A sordid past,

My thief of time.


A lasting pain of childhood lost...

'Around my neck,

My albatross'.


Those moments lived, those moments moored,

To be re-lived,

Forever more....
