The Calm – Written Tuesday 7th September 1999 (Aged 24)

The Calm

in amongst all this chaos
lies the calm
lies the hand that holds me
and the mind that keeps me warm
in amongst the evaporating time
that acts like a smoke screen
yet remains untouched
like the walls of my dreams
here lies the truth
never obstructed by fantasy
and protective like a roof
here lies the real me
waiting to be easily charmed
i think we could set each other free
just let me find your arms
in amongst all this chaos
in amongst all the strange
i am so scared it is untrue
and i know i am going insane
so, just me find you




James Garratt – Tuesday 7th September 1999
