25/10/16 A story of two

...and I sat there and watched them,

from a distance of thirty years.

She with her nutbrown hair

and him with his blue eyes

both of them listening to their world

in ways their peers would not understand.

 

I looked a different direction

and saw them again.

Maybe I was five years closer,

it's hard to say,

so much has changed since then.

Now they are teenagers,

he is bruised and bleeding from

his thirteenth fight of the year,

she is alone, surrounded by nature

writing in her precious notebook.

 

I think I must have fallen,

maybe I struck my head...

but now they are both adults.

Both nurses,

both working on the same ward,

and they don't know each other

but they think they know themselves.
