Afraid – Written Wednesday 16th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Afraid

i am afraid
of dying alone
going home
no telephone
i am afraid
of forever
living in the night
sky not to bright
always in a fight
i am alone
and i feel afraid
i am afraid
of getting made
of getting out –
of here alive
give me a spade
to dig my grave
bury me deep
i want to sleep




James Garratt – Wednesday 16th November 1994
