Show Me – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Show Me

catch my mind
take my thoughts
see what you can find
wax my fingers
see what is left behind
living, breathing, eating
seeking, feeling, sinking
street eater, gutter hider
changer of time
soul survivor
in the dungeons of the deep
where the rats have a domain
you eat and slowly sleep
history hero
catcher of the shy
from the world that sits below
show me how i work
let me steal your time
show me how i hurt

James Garratt – 1994
