No One Comes Unarmed – Written Saturday 20th May 2000 (Aged 25)

No One Comes Unarmed

no one comes unarmed
their arms are always dangerous
your arms were strong
the kept me in place
and now they have gone
i am just drifting in space
no one comes unarmed
their arms will always hold you
before it is too late
before we have to wait
your arms were small
but they –
wrapped themselves around me
they wrapped –
themselves around a world
they were warm and now it is cold
no one comes unarmed
do not believe what they say
do not believe the chase
no one comes unarmed
arms hold us and they leave us
sometimes they make us warm
and sometimes they are enough




James Garratt – Saturday 20th May 2000
