I met a woman,
On my daily jog.
She was my lookalike,
Walking with a dog.
The parameter that surrounded,
It changed in that moment.
We were somewhere else,
Change of a second or may be a minute.
I saw her ghost-like skin,
I saw the redemption she was seeking for her sins.
I saw a battered mind,
I saw those dead but piercing eyes.
I tried to communicate,
Couldn't read her mind.
She tried as well,
Then she vanished from my sight.
It was an experience,
I can't explain.
It stopped me there,
Lured me to see,what I'm trying to gain.
I knew the path I was walking,
Will get me there.
Where I was someone,
That I can't seems to bare.
Knowing what's going to happen,
Left me reeling.
Knowing there was a possibility of loosing;
Everything that I hold dear,
Everything that I want near.
It took me a moment to realise,
There wasn't a ghost I was seeing,
Just a trick of my unconscious mind.
It was an awakening,
I didn't knew I was waiting for,
It was an opportunity,
To change what could happen and maybe being more.
It was a blessing.....
And it was a curse.
It changed the facts and the future...
And everything that could've occurred.
