She Changed Me

She Changed Me

A Poem by Saint No-One

There was a time
When I couldn't imagine
Getting up without my
Morning cup of coffee.

 

She changed that.

 

Her six AM hair
Hits me like red-eye,
In an airport terminal
10,000 miles away from home.

 

There was a time
When I couldn't imagine
Living life without
Chasing my next hit.

 

She changed that.

 

Her rainforest eyes
Pierce my golden heart,
Like a million needles
Never could.

 

And there was a time
When no one could imagine
The boy I was becoming
The man I am today.

 

She changed me.

 

She calmed my fiery mind,
She braved my stormy past,
To be the wind caught in my sail,
And crack my heart of stone.

 

She changed me...

I am an artist, but my mind doesn't work the way I want it to. One day I'll be, washing myself with handsoap in a public bathroom, thinking how did I get here? Where the hell am I? more..
