Blinded by the Sun – Written April 2004 (Aged 29)

Blinded by the Sun

you have picked apart my relationships
relenting none,
blinded by the sun
you passed judgement on who i am
without ever hearing the case
you have given me a new identity
and decided i am a waste
as the real one for you at least
remains on the run
and then, you are are back onto my relationships
relenting none,
it is strange to see
and even harder to believe
that if you feel for someone
you could just them to bleed
relenting none,
the fundamentals of who i am
are jars on the top shelf
ones which you just cannot reach
yet i would like to help
but you feel you are done
instead, you just pick over my relationships
relenting none

James Garratt – April 2009
