Made of Teardrops – Written Saturday 6th September 2014 (Aged 39)

Made of Teardrops

when people say things
and they do not realise
that you are made of teardrops
wound and bound together –
by insecurity
full of it am i?
am i?
over confident?
you silly silly person
you could never know
it is why people give you rain –
waind, hail and snow
when people do not think –
beyond what they think they see
that cuts swathes out of me
i am made of teardrops
bound together –
by care and insecurity
full of it,
actually only full of doubt
and this is evidenced by how –
you words carry such clout

James Garratt – Saturday 6th September 2014
