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

Hospital

take me away from this place
where i wish to crouch
and hide my sorry face
with iron curtains and steel rails
i want to be back home
sometimes now
i am feeling down and queasy
the pain is subsiding
but it is not easy
realising that i am here
without my special people
especially near
i am all alone in a building
the captor of a thousand souls
at least my temperature is dropping
i want to feel the cold
this is the place that takes life
just as easily as it gives life
where screams can be heard at night
it’s not that they don’t care about you
because they really do
take me away from this place
back to things i know




James Garratt – February to June 1995
