Hollow Tomb – Written Saturday 12th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Hollow Tomb

tell me, tell me a story
about yourself
your selfish wish
you are nobody else
get out there –
and find something
give up the fight
you are a hollow tomb
find something now –
to fill up your life
barren womb
no child to be born
a soul at the end of its cord
a landscape tattered and worn
a mind that is bored
you defenceless bitch
a black and white witch
learn to live, living is now
learn, somehow

James Garratt – Saturday 12th November 1994
