Looking After Myself – Written Saturday 28th June 2008 (Aged 33)

Looking After Myself

i need to look after myself
no one seems to realise
that i am on a roller coaster
you just see me, ‘coping’
perhaps never realising
that my heart is eloping
self belief has had an affair
with my insanity
and neither of them care
that they have changed my reality
or that the cupboards are bare
i need to look after myself




James Garratt – Saturday 28th June 2008
