The Book I Am – Written Thursday 28th October 2010 (Aged 35)

The Book I Am

you open me up
like the book i am
your tear out my pages
and forget my hands
you dress in the –
clothes of my charity
you are next to me
who are you using?
you take my feelings
and screw them up
in the tiniest ball
you see skittles
so you throw them away
knowing they are brittle
you take advantage –
of my honesty
and drown it in the dark
you smudge your reality
your feelings fail to park




James Garratt – Thursday 28th October 2010
