You Get to Me – Written Monday 28th June 1999 (Aged 24)

You Get to Me

you get to me
live outside yourself
somehow become resident in my head
you are with me
in the shadows
that are the skeleton of my day
you are a segment of my reality
yet you are so far away
you give me so many questions
and yes, i am eager for the answers
i am willing to search
yet, i do not really know you
i have never held you
took you out or kindled your fire
you get to me
and i cannot help this idle dreaming

James Garratt – Monday 28th June 1999
