We Are Not The Same – Written Wednesday 11th October 2005 (Aged 30)

We Are Not The Same

i am not you and you are not me
i remember what you said,
that you knew me better –
than my closest friends
i knew then what you really meant –
was that i have this condition
which only you understand
and you understand it like no one else
but i am afraid,
you have confused me for somebody else
we could be soulmates
but first,
you need to find the road i travel on
i am not you and you not me
and our differences should be celebrated
the path to someone’s heart
often requires much self education
