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


so caring
you are exasperating
i am waiting,
trying to match your energy
i am free in my world
but i do wish,
the weather was better
sometimes it is so cold
you know,
i wrote you a letter
but i thought better
and i burnt it
just to keep myself warm
which feels like a contradiction
you are an addiction
but so caring
and so daring

James Garratt – February to June 1995
