Crying – Written Saturday 5th November 1994 (Aged 19)


i think of you crying at home
i abandoned you,
left you in the dark blind and alone
it hurts because i want you
it cuts so deep
you there in my memory
as soon as i come out of my sleep
the guilt will never let me be free
i cannot eat, i cannot work
i really hurt
i really care
but now i am falling
now your hand is not there
it is not fair, i am at fault
so painful, so damn painful

James Garratt – Saturday 5th November 1994
