That Someone Else

I’ve met you before or someone
who looks like you, maybe
talks like you…wears similar
clothes.

I can’t help myself but
I’ve just judged you, made a
decision about who you are
to me.

I have a feeling I might not like
you, something about the
person I’m reminded of
by you.

Someone you don’t know but
who has control over how I feel
about you…it is unbidden
inside

I feel bad around my edges, I
don’t want to feel this, feel this
judgment, this internal kind
of sick.

Walking uphill I try to understand
you, the real you, not the idea
lodged inside, the “not me”
you.

This happens to me frequently
I don’t know why…does it occur
inside you, does it make
you sad?

When I meet you I must un-meet
you in my head, I have to
consciously divorce the two
images

Hi, how are you? (again) It is very
nice to (re)meet you…I hope we
can be friends, unlike that someone
else.
