Waiting to Be Visited – Written Tuesday 4th May 1999 (Aged 24)

Waiting to Be Visited

caught out by an eating disorder
caught out by anorexia
caught in the middle of a divorce
caught saying goodbye to their father
caught staring inside
caught wiping the tears away from their mother
not a thing feels right
and not thing feels that real
so you can be caught on any night
caught by what you feel
caught by your own sorry depression
the one that bleeds into solitary words
caught out by the truth
caught out by the insane
caught and then twisted
caught alone although there are many rooms
waiting to be visited
but i suspect, it will not happen anytime soon

James Garratt – Tuesday 4th May 1999
