Glass Palace (Originally Untitled) – Written December 2000 (Aged 25)

Glass Palace

i have got a lot to learn
you have got a lot to learn,
your games,
your jealously,
you emotional demands
you have got a lot to learn,
perfection is easily found
sleep like a cat
and let your purring be the only sound
be a glass house
live together so you are not alone
but be careful in your glass palace
do not throw stones
i have got a lot to learn
yes i have
but do not place yourself above me
remember the times
you spent under me
we did not learn much then
you did not have the answers either
i have got a lot to learn
you have got a lot to learn




James Garratt – December 2000
