my friend and i had a walk today
we dropped by to pay visits to pure
pure said she smelled like rain
and she haven't dusted in years and she better make it soon
my friend looked puzzled and said "this reminds me of my trip to Africa"
all that came to my mind was my old friend the phantom
i missed talking to him
my friend and i used to share a passion for stupidity
he used to dance mad stomping his feet in sand
i used to laugh and clap my hands seeing him do that
i said "u have to tell me more of that, now lets go"
we left pure with her glooms
headed to see our post-it poetess who dresses in perfumes
she never knew what a muse is and would drift away in space
come back asking us without looking at any of the two of us
"why don't angels wear shoes?" she'd say
and when we got to read her poems
it always had to do with angst and gentiles
she made us laugh, she never offered us water or tea
we came upon our old friend B who you'd find in the strangest places
he'd have this look like he's been expecting you
we heard about his knowledge of the world of the dead
he claimed he spoke the right language to communicate with them
my friend always said "why do he has to bother them that much!"
i wouldn't reply but B made me curious sometimes
he remind me of this guy who used to go with me to school
stubborn, persistent, passion driven but not to the extent of being insane
insanity always fascinate me
sullen, dark and overly happy always make me think
i don't think i share the same views with my friend
i said "hey listen I'll go see someone and see u back here in an hour"
my friend told me he have to make sure we had somethings on his mind.....
he always give me a feeling like I'm being ahead of him
not necessarily paranoid just a slight feeling of superiority
so who did i wanted to see?
could it be her
the molten skinned, fair haired temptress
this word make me smile i wonder what would she'd do if she knew i refer to her by that name
smile disappears when i remembered how she was hidden in her words and eyes
scared of any thought of feeling
how couldn't i see this before the idea made my eye brows come close to one another
we haven't talked in sometime
I'm not sure i can still see her face in my mind's eye
i look for details
her soft lips always made me drift
of that I'm certain
her face didn't come clear to aid me on my search
what should i do now?
call her up
why not!
we never fail to forget about how time works
and the way we travel like smoke rings in a closed room
smoke always strike me as an amazing discovery
because no one invented smoke
the way it isn't affected with magnetic fields or electricity
a free form of hmmm .... spirituality
this make me think why i kept suggesting to her
to let go
the many nights wide awake
and keeping distance
i was just keeping distance from my soul
the one to let go should have been me
i am scared like her
that's why we met on the same wave-length
i don't like past perfect tense
for me they carry the smell of distress
just like that black dress
she wore when we first met
at that time i was Buddha and she was the Buddha head
its been so long
she must have changed
i find myself somewhere i don't know of
my feet didn't find any response from my brain and it decided to go ahead
i decide to go back to meet up with my friend
and see what he had on his mind for us
i feel kind of tired from this conversation i had without words involved
light headed now indeed
i see my friend he looks relaxed
didn't want to break his mood with my questions
so i take a seat
and ask him "Do u remember N?"
he says "M?!"
i smile and say "no the one after that"
doesn't seem to be catching my drift
i carry on "N the temptress"
"ah yes how can i forget her?!" replies between 2 drags from a cigarette
"do u think we had something in common?" i ask
giving it deep thought it seem
"I'd say you share a high rate of impulsiveness"
that answer kind of confuses me
"I'm thinking of calling her up" i say this with my infamous indecisiveness
"you miss the sound of her lips" my friend says that sending me on a paranoid swirl
thinking that my thoughts are being spied on
i actually almost was fully convinced of the idea
until i heard "but you won't know her face"
now i try to think of silly looking slippers and joy rides to see
if these can be heard
"and if you knew it, you'd just come closer to her fears"
i decided that my friend knows too much and i shouldn't argue
so i change the subject asking "do u hear from Z?"
"last time i was crazy with madness, i questioned her wits" this is said with conviction
"its funny isn't it, you lose your head, come back again lose it again and think
that i better save some for later" i said this ending with a very certain smile
"well of course you know more of that like me" there's no trace of sarcasm there
S pass by us and he's looking at the ground as if he's looking for something
then he looks at the sky and he almost fell on his back
he glanced past us
came to my friend and he said "YOU,WILL WELCOME THE STRANGER "
and he sees me and looks surprised and says "AND YOU, YOU'RE GOING TO SHAKE HIS HANDS "
all of this is said with a loud certain suddenness
he leaves us and disappears just the way he came
we look at each other and just crack up laughing
after we're both done and stop to catch our breath
the words echo in my head
'The stranger' i think
sounded like pure madness but that might make sense later on
i like madness
madness is a good friend
i got her a coffee cup on her last day of birth
and something to go along with her desk
my friend seems to be gone in a trance
and hums something
it sounded like the words
"rain rain let it rain, lay back and dream on a rainy day"
i like the friends i have here on this arc
if all of this was a big jail
i just wouldn't tell.
been sometime....i guess im making it up with longness:)
