Jail Tale

A man wrongfully convicted of a crime was in jail serving a long sentence. He shared a cell with a self-confessed conman. Over time the two naturally developed a mutual respect so one day as they shared their experiences the conman remarked:

”I’m convinced of your innocence. I really believe you. You couldn’t fool me. Hoodwinking people has been my lifelong profession. Your predicament is nothing new. I’ve met a few in my time, who like you have had to endure similar injustices. But what baffles me is that each and every one of them always expressed immense anger – justifiably so of course. But I sense not a hint of resentment towards anyone, not even the system responsible for landing you in this god forsaken place. So tell me, how do you manage to put up with it all and do it so graciously too, knowing you did absolutely nothing to deserve this.”

The man replied: ”one has no choice but to live on this earth and yet, only he can create his world.”

although she was married
she was never guilty his eyes
and no one could ever take away her integrity
except despise her for having fallen in love with someone else

she’d helped him find himself and realise the courage he’d always believed he had
and they were truly friends, who for years had kept a fair distance between themselves
but were always close at heart until the day they conquered fear and surrendered to lust

it was clear nothing would ever come near to what they’d together discovered
an undefeated love… but not undisputed if they’d ever been found out
and so they broke it off, hard as that was, thinking things were better off

they’d experienced a pure and yet forbidden love but the time had come to let go
so they could go on seeming normal in the face of the world – love’s longtime adversary –
despite both of them being convinced that was an even greater mistake than they’d made in the first instance

Pretty lady…
honey golden skin.

Please wait a minute
so I can tell you how I’m feeling.

I want to know everything you believe in
as in do you want a husband, or maybe a baby.

Pardon my tongue slipping
but I see us in the future living.

One day I’ll say I told you so
for they say when you know you know.

But before you tell me no
ask yourself if ever you thought you’d smile like so.

I just want a chance to show…
a chance to grow.

And as foolish as this seems
I’m quite sure you’re the very angel I always saw in my dreams.
