Met a New Friend (Originally Untitled) – November 2000 (Aged 25)

Met a New Friend 

met a new friend, unknown hands 
never touched, faces miles apart 
but strangely, i am drawn to her play
i will play understudy to her main part 
a state of emotion,
mingles with confusion 
and i do not believe in magic
life is not the greatest illusion 

met a new friend 
found me in the dustbin
and she dusted me down 
she gave me a worded crown
a halo of writing,
that seems so exciting 
i am drawn to her stage 
with feelings we readily trade
in these strange, strange days
