Mishaps – Written Friday 10th December 2010 (Aged 35)


i am glad that my mishaps
cause you to feel so much glee
and i am glad
you enjoy is when i am unhappy
what did i do to deserve this?
where did the bond –
turn into hate
or maybe a mild dislike
perhaps you have forgotten
how you treated me
always there, when life looked sick
but your open arms –
were just tortuous dagger tips
and the daggers went deep
i did not a thing wrong
other than have feelings
i am not perfect
so what is it that left you seething

James Garratt – Friday 10th December
