Out In This Place – Written Saturday 6th November 1999 (Aged 24)

Out In This Place

out in this place
smiling face
happy thoughts
mind almost unchained
from the cell,
which it finds itself in
out with you
makes a child feel special
nothing else to do
turning around and coming home
tears rolling down the face
the face you once touched
the face you once kissed
and the face you loved
out in this place
i am waiting for you
thinking of you now
and wondering about you
what is going through your mind?

James Garratt – Saturday 6th November 1999
