The Watching – Written Wednesday 9th February 2005 (Aged 29)

The Watching

i watched the world
run away,
from the seams
during the day
in its idle dreams
i watched you cross a bridge
just to reach the other side
acts of bravery,
things you cannot hide
i understand the clouds
and why they sail,
across an angry sky
the line is very thin
that is why we live and why we die
i watched lines
as they merged,
far off in the distance
i feel submerged
and not much really makes sense
