Insecurity Laid Bare – Written Wednesday 21st April 1999 (Aged 24)

Insecurity Laid Bare

i will sit here
just so you can laugh at me
you do not know me
and you do not care
but i can see
and i see your insecurity laid bare
you make me feel locked in
it is tiny inside your head
it is rainy in your bed

i will sit here
and take your brainless insults
i will be near
and my words can cause deeper cuts
you do not know me
you have made your mind up
you made it all up
but you did not make it well
there is no one in
no one that i can tell

i will sit here on my own
you sit here
and we will decide who is the warmest




James Garratt – Wednesday 21st April 1999
