It was out of nowhere you came
Quiet glances
Careful smiles
Drinks in the evening
Coffee by day
Long conversations by night.

We knew that underneath
There were differences.

Be careful
She's not like you
They said
Be careful
You know it might make you confused
Something of her might rub off on you.

Yeah right, whatever.
How paranoid.

But they were right, you know.
You touched me
In the deepest places
And suddenly I realised

You have rubbed off on me.
My neat philosophy
And pre-prepared explanations
Meet the force of your
Raised eyebrow
And suddenly
We erupt
Into raucous laughter.

Your friendship reached deep within
Stole my whitewashed theology.
Together, we are healed.
