My Sensitivity (Originally Untitled) – Written December 2000 (Aged 25)

My Sensitivity

i cannot explain my sensitivity
i cannot justify the way i feel
it is just me…
it is just about real
i cannot explain why i know
as fragile as glass,
careful as i grow
painters leave,
they paint themselves as victims
gullible people believe
and the sands are always shifting

James Garratt – December 2000
