Inner and Outer

We met
our shoulders touched
or passed close
no surprise
or excitement
just trouble
yours and mine
this is how it is, trouble
and darkness
not evil darkness

Everyone else was light
love light
but aware of every damn event
inner and outer
not judgemental

I ran off
excused myself with a lie
that no one believed
I didn't run from you
I think our two seconds were over
I ran because of the polarity
your energy
their energy
or was it the strangeness at being there
I don't know why I ran

I went away
down a lane
looking up at the Halls of Residence
on the hill, distant, left
I walked down, right
toward the sea
expecting a harbour, few cottages
