OTHER


I was the one
Who looked at you from way across the room
The one who felt your pain
And never gave it back
I cared not
If you canít even see
Just by spirit
Be with me

I was the girl
Who felt your touch
On her flesh
That gentleness from someone so strong
I cried not
If you love her
Just go on
Walking past

I was the other
You look right through
I was part of you
That shudder in the hall
That whisper into the moonless sky
That gaze on your back as you walk towards her
That one
Loving you
