There must be Time for a Lack of It

 

I went for a walk one day and I stumbled upon myself.

All the while, I was actually looking for someone else.

A day in the park, created a spark.

Although the journey at first was gentle enough, little did I know it was soon to get rough.

Hair curling

Whispers swirling

Brightness falling on an endless calling

Nevermore to keep track the score

If you win, I do too.

Together we can’t lose.

One and won don’t make two

 When you are me and I am you

A little

A lot

A tick

A tock

A pebble

A spot

A skip

A clock

A map

A road

An Earth

A globe

Now it’s getting dark and we’re not in the park.

It’s getting late but we have no date.

The thing that has changed is that I am not just me.

When you came along, I became we.
