Everything I Possess – Writing Monday 4th October 1999 (Aged 24)

Everything I Possess

standing here
stripped bare
of all that is wrong
clothed in feelings of,
‘i really care’
sitting here
with my eyes so shut
stripped bare
clothed in a need,
and i thought of,
this is not enough
lying here
stripped bare
of every dream i possess
clothes in a thought dream,
that i want to share
standing here
lying here
just distell my fear
ferment all of my years
hold me next to you
feel us both mentally stripped bare
feels so much and in a better way
clothed in all of our cares

James Garratt – Monday 4th October 1999
