Locked Behind the Bars of Closed Down Eyes – Written Saturday 4th November 2006 (Aged 31)

Locked Behind the Bars of Closed Down Eyes

sweet child
locked behind the bars
of closed down eyes
not a time traveller
simply caught in a moment
of absolute pain
redundant hope
sold off self confidence
sweet child
locked in the shell of a mind
somehow rejected
and left to rot
on the slag heap of failure
sweet child
tentatively reaching
for the outside world
refusing warm coats
sweet child
locked behind the bars
of closed down eyes




James Garratt – Saturday 4th November 2006
