Grazing – Written Wednesday 20th December 2000 (Aged 25)


they drive me mad
sometimes i do things
that are so stupid
but you never make it sad
you hold on,
she may have lost her respect,
but you never left me
some people never see the day
they are blind to colour
they do not know the way
i might get tired
of being in this field
and i may not like grazing
without a harvest to yield
but you hold on,
you know, i hold on
she has packed her memories and gone
how can i justify feelings
when it is apparent,
i never really knew her
she is not the girl i shook with
they drive me mad
but i have got to live

James Garratt – December 2000
