Denial – Written Friday 18th December 2009 (Aged 34)


you deny me friends,
the friendships i have forged
over these these years,
you have pretended they do not exist
and it happens,
so it fits in,
with what you believe
you deny my love,
the love i have for those around me
and you deny the love
i receive in return
just because of what you have to believe
and you have no desire to learn
but, in reality,
you deny me nothing
because i am something
i will not be the subject of your madness
a casualty of your fear
you are the emotional car crash
your brain badly wired
reason an impossible mish mash

James Garratt – Friday 18th December 2009
