A Little Soul
There are some days I feel it more than others. My soul. The bit of me that seems divorced from science. The part of me that feels. And I'll be sat on the tube, surrounded by unfamiliar, blank faces. And I realise that every one of those faces is hiding someone's unique soul, their intense emotions and memories, all wrapped up in skin and clothes. It's there for everyone, all this stuff swirling around beneath the surface, behind the eyes.
I'll find myself out late, standing under the stars, and I'll look up and wonder how many others are staring up at the same night sky. And you can almost feel them through the ether. I don't believe in psychokinetic mumbo jumbo, but you know what I mean. There's six billion of us, all buzzing about with shit flying around our heads, most of which we'll never ever talk about to another living soul. And which we spend a large amount of time trying to block out.
And so I'm here tonight, a little washed out by Thursday night drinking, celebrations and farewells. And I can feel my soul weighing heavy on me. I worry that I think too much and I think that I worry too much. Tonight I feel like the only living boy in N4. But tomorrow is another day...
