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


i have never met anyone special
well, not recently,
recently they all seem the same
but perhaps i am being cruel
perhaps i am to blame
i have been rummaging in scraps
becoming disillusioned by the facts
i have got a headache
and i have them far too often
i stare at the glass
just as the aspirin falls to the bottom
changing the clarity
and when i look,
i feel i am just looking at me
and it is my life dissolving away

James Garratt – February to June 1995
