You’ve weary eyes wearing demise
I’ve seen you before through some other door
Do you cry in your sleep and laugh when you wake?
Do you climb up the trees to hear the leaves shake?
I wonder now just who you are
I’ve never known you at all
Maybe I do
I probably don’t
Maybe you’ll talk
I probably won’t
You blink and try to ward me off
But just a glimpse is enough to know where you’re from.

Probably the most random poem I’ve ever written. The story behind this is that I was on the bus today getting back home. I saw this woman, for some reason she inspired me. I gave it to her just before I got down. She seemed sort of curious. Saw her reading it once I got onto the pavement.
