I Gave Myself to People – Written January 2011 (Aged 35)

I Gave Myself to People

it is true
i gave myself away –
to people
who did not deserve me
they came and went
with a –
purposeful indifference
and what is the reason
or even the point –
of never taking a chance
and never reaching out

James Garratt – January 2011
