I Slept For Hours – Written Monday 28th June 1999 (Aged 24)

I Slept for Hours

i slept for hours
i slept somewhat haphazard in my bed
and on the way home –
late on saturday night
i almost fell asleep in the street
and i have almost lost the fight
but i would win you know
if only i could find my feet
i slept in freshly painted dungeons
i slept in big empty rooms
i slept in brand new stone circles
and learnt all of the runes
i slept with a friend –
who was very much in another way
i will sleep till the end
and hopefully i will wake to a brighter day

James Garratt – Monday 28th June 1999
