The Inside Person – Monday 11th July 1999 (Aged 24)

The Inside Person

they get to the inside
they take my breath
i have got cold feet
would you be the sunshine person
would you help me,
overcome my demons
something big is in my way
something that won’t let me go
it makes for strange living
it should have been dealt with
but it just seems to grow
they get to the inside
separated by technology
but not by the beats of our hearts
they get inside
to that special part
that scares you half to death
they take my breath
right now i need self respect
because my life is such a mess
