Different Runes – Written Sunday 7th July 2002 (Aged 27)

Different Runes

i cannot entertain –
those i do not know
i cannot clean away the rust
on feelings –
hurt by those i no longer trust
i would paint the ceilings
but what is lost –
is spontaneous feeling
i cannot entertain –
when i do not know the audience
or where i am
just as in the dark or in the fog
i am just searching for hands
can i not tiptoe quietly
out of this neon room
can i make way to peace and quiet
i need a different tune
just sometimes –
i am looking for different runes

James Garratt – July 2002
