Words – Written Saturday 8th May 1999 (Aged 24)

Words

i give you words
they are drenched with my emotions
and made with pure feeling

i give you my words
not flowers or jewellery
that sort of things
that hang like cobwebs in dusty corners

i give you my words
manufactured in a factory
a factory of undiluted memories
built on most fertile land

i give you my words
so say them as you fall asleep
as dark encroaches
and you are poached from this waking world

i give you my words
many words with many true meanings
i give you my being
how does all this leave you feeling?




James Garratt – Saturday 8th May 1999
