Take Your Spell Away – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Take your Spell Away

take your spell away
i do not want to be,
reminded of what you are
or the times you took
here i am,
writing my book
i don’t think you even realise
exactly what it is that you took
or how much i cried
as a teenanger i spent too much time
just wanting to die
i could not stand to be near
no one seems to understand or care
exactly why you effect me
take your spell away

James Garratt – February to June 1995
