The Pieces You Collect – Written Monday 16th August 1999 (Aged 24)

The Pieces You Collect

life is a game and the pain
are just the pieces you collect
life is a drain,
a drain on your emotions
leaving you just about insane
life is a joke,
that exists to be, too true
but the joke is so old
and we thrive on the new

life is a game and the pain
is like the experience,
they are the pieces you collect
it does not make sense
so i dream,
and try to catch up on my sleep
but it swims away
as i stand in the water
life is a game,
this is what you learn,
as you turn slowly insane




James Garratt – Monday 16th August 1999
