Pouring Rain – Written Thursday 18th November 1999 (Aged 24)

Pouring Rain

in the dripping pouring rain
in my mind,
in my frame,
here we are in the commotion
spare me a thousand pennies
halfway there,
from half way here
i held hands with the slain
those who laid down their lives
but only received the blame
in the feeling reeling room
where the music is off
but you still hear a tune
in my mind,
in my frame,
i am here on my own
just me, in this pouring rain

James Garratt – Thursday 18th November 1999
