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


careless with your possessions
i would sell my world
under your discretion
let’s read a book of your confessions
let us learn together
do not try to draw me in
i am changing the weather
should have seen him go
could do nothing i did not know
careless with your eyes
always wandering,
searching for mine
trying to make time
feeling i am waiting for nothing
feeling restless
feeling for you but you are careless

James Garratt – February to June 1995
