Why? - Poem by clarise brook
Ever had that moment where you see something,
a look between two people that you weren't supposed to see,
or rather, a look that shouldn't really have passed between those two people in the first place but did,
and then you are left in this bizare situation,
First, I imagined it! Yes that's right, it's just me, it was nothing,
Ha ha, fine if you can rest with that but you know it was more!
Second, this tremble inside, like fear but not quite fear, as you question it over and over...
She's my blood, he my love - why did that just happen?
But in the place you like to hide, that secret part of your brain where you close away the hurt, the pain, the things you like to pretned arent there,
from that place leaps a million times like this,
a thousand looks,
a hundred glances,
a score of touches,
one broken heart.
