Prison for Fools – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and October 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Prison for Fools

i know what i need
i know i need you
these are easy words to write,
i know
but that is how i feel
i am really missing you
you turned out to be a dream
but life is often a nightmare
why did you never let me in
you have left me,
a victim of my own weakness
i still really want you
in me, you could have trust
but you said you always wanted to be free
and although the road always bends
do you want to discard people
that just want to be friends
i am missing you
and although i know you used me
i do not have a clue,
about what i should do
you hurt me, led me along
i was naïve and stupid
before i knew it, you was gone
you left far too soonv and the place you left me
was a dark door-less empty room
i hurt, but it never shows
as i pound the walls
the room does not even have windows
i am in a prison for fools
i am missing you, what can i say

James Garratt – 1994
