Relentless – Written August 2008 (Aged 33)


an army marching on me
to take on my identity
determined to take my sanity
attempting to take out my reality

that is what they were
that absolute suffocation
where you can not do a thing right
and you are damned in every situation

my castle a fortress,
defended tot he hilt
the lumbering army entrenched in the past
and drenched in childhood guilt
no awareness
just a target
on which to advance
my side of the story was killed instantly
sadly, it never stood a chance

James Garratt – August 2008
