You Do Not Know Me (Originally Untitled and Unfinished) – Written July 2009 (Aged 34)

You Do Not Know Me

you do not know me
but you think you do
all the same
you think you are right
but you are not
you think it is fine
to insult me
as if i do not have the
the same feelings as everyone
but you are wrong
it is okay
you are anxious
and you are insecure
your confidence is false
i can see its fractures
you think you know me
but you have no idea

James Garratt – July 2009
