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


see the girl –
with long golden hair
she is –
your summer dream
see her standing there
waiting with a smile
she is a dream demon
high on –
demoralisation and isolation
so as you are learning
you can be with her eyes
really yearning,
there is not time to waste
you have got to get to her side
so you know how to survive

James Garratt – February to June 1995
