If I smile
will you
if I want you to feel better
bout — anything
will you
will you take the chance
breaking your thoughts
fine line between smirk and smile
can you open your eyes
your heart
can you burst
your personal bubble
just for a sec
and think of blowing up
another one
with me inside
with you
can you take my hand
can you give a hug
I’ll give mine
seconds, minutes, hours, days
all the same
passing on the street
bumping carts at the market
sitting at a bus stop
our clothes my be different
our flesh color too
thank you
thank you for meeting me
that half way
strangers meeting
strangers moving on
having another
awesometastic day
