Every Time You Look At Me – Written August 2007 (Aged 32)

Every Time You Look At Me

i try to sleep
but sleep –
with its uneven dreams
pulls me –
apart at the seams
and it tries to hang me
from its wooden beams
i try not to look
but every time –
you look at me
it leaves me so chained

James Garratt – August 2007
