My Tunisian Awakening - Poem by Stanley Collymore

By Stanley Collymore

I have just experienced the most unexpected and
exhilarating experience I could ever have
imaged or hoped for while being on
holiday of all things; too
considerable for words and rightly so. I met
you: previously a complete stranger to
me but in the ensuing hours we were
together the transition of you from
stranger to some very special to
me wasn’t only dramatic but
was also in this remarkable
process significantly life-
changing as well.
For having reciprocally empathized with you
so instantaneously and to such an extent,
in ways that strangers rarely do, I
happily became aware on this
most incredible of Sundays –
30 January 2011 – that I
was possibly falling
in love with you.
