But You Are… – Written May 2015 (Aged 40)

But You Are…

you said –
you are not attractive
oh but your are
you know,
how the comments usd to find me
i need you more
than i care to admit
you know,
i once dressed up in destruction
as a passion
but it left me
wondering how i would go on
you know that there is a face you have
at certain moments
and it is locked into my smile
i only push you away
i fight with myself
and i get caught up
in my own dirt and my own mind
a face at certain moments
that leaves me deeply connected
and all my emotions positively affected

James Garratt – May 2015
