30,000 Steps – Connor O’Sullivan-Day

Boy you’re like a Rubik’s cube – Showing me all you colours and sides

My name is Connor O’Sullivan-Day. I am 22 years old and I love travelling, writing and a combination of city and nature, although I am a city boy at heart.

30,000 Steps

All of the hours fly by
It’s never felt so natural like this time. My night is in your hands –
I wanna get lost with you
Explore every single avenue.


We could get lost in Finsbury Park Stay here till the air gets dark.
Boy you’re like a Rubik’s cube – Showing me all you colours and sides, There’s nothing that I want to hide.


Found myself smiling at your name Wanna scream it from this train.
You walk me to my stop –
Please keep me out don’t let me go, Don’t make me end this night alone.


You quickly pause our conversation
To tell me about your dream in the middle of the station. And it feels like the stars were made just for us
We’re on our way to nowhere
But with you it feels like somewhere.

Connor O’Sullivan-Day
