Good Ink – Written Saturday 20th November 1999 (Aged 24)

Good Ink

this is me
who am i friend?
you talk about the now
when it think,
i can think deep
i found you in my sleep
are we sharing dreams
you can have mine
they are yours for keeps
this is me
the tears make good ink
and the ink seems like a sea
but no matter how much i think
it never says, join me
it never offers me its hand
this is me,
i am a feature freak on a mountain
looking at a future
painted onto paper with a strange grain
if you would like to know,
well the truth is there
but are you able to grow?

James Garratt – Saturday 20th November 1999
