Collected – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Collected

collected
i was collected
from a place we never want to go
from a place to which we came
i was collected
from a super astral plane
which i view with rose coloured spectacles
collections left in the corner
dreams which i had
which have become smaller and smaller
collect me when i am down
see me get smaller
so won’t you stay around
collections of thoughts
of things bought of dust
collections of your feelings
of which i can never seem to get enough
collected and dejected
leave me be
let me believe
be someone i need
collected from the wilderness
from the dreams on which we feed




James Garratt – February to June 1995
