no.2




i met a man late march/early april, we knew each-other for forty-eight hours, it was a romance of sorts...no physical contact, but a deep and definitive understanding.
i met him at work, a chance-encoutner...i happened to be friendly, he happened to oblige.
i forgot what it felt like for someone to look at me through rose-coloured glasses until he spoke to me, and he forgot what it felt like to not worry.
i have no idea if i will ever see him again, either way it's ok - we both learnt something from each-other.
i wrote him these lyrics the night before we met for our goodbye breakfast.
thought i'd share:


whiplash happens fast,
im no longer standing up
threw me out of whack and i realise it was cold.
when i stand still i forget my focus,
i lose my grip, my hold,

and something happens quickly and its no longer about control
cause as i walk eachday,its a path thats yet untold.
a suprise in the present
instincfully i trust you and i know this lesson has more to it to mould

im not sure what ive learnt yet
it will come to me,
i understand some moments are better left open-ended
and constraints of time wont bind there tick tock , but that this can all just be...

for a reason i want to thank you, i reason i dont know
i sort of feel like i know you, i have no idea of why,
but from a unusual hidden place, a vulnerable screeching space
a hidden burrow, sometimes unlocked a special thankyou a deep honest sigh
a reasoned twinkle, i cant deny.

and something happens quickly and its no longer about control
cause as i walk eachday,its a path thats yet untold.
a suprise in the present
instincfully i trust you and i know this lesson has more to it to mould

this may sound sensless, confused and amok
but inside i know theres meaning in this,
so i can just trust.
