Still That Stranger

Still That Stranger ballad

Photo by hkarau

I wish you were still the stranger
I admired

Will I think again
before I chain myself to
another restless departure

Fitting you in everyday
is a sickness
it breaks me
As a night
caught in look
waiting out the clouds
to showoff space
to dance us under the same desire
to shiver my body
to use my legs

Will you never be that stranger
Holding me in your smile
damning my heart
begging me to survive
daring me to breathe

Captured in thought
wishing you never knew
my love
my passion
the strength of my forever

How dare you live
knowing where my heart has been
How it breaks and sends
How fast it beats and sins

Where I write you beautiful
till the end

The Stranger

The Stranger prose poem

There we met, at street seventy seventh; my friend who’d bowed down with altering features, and me with my clothes getting narrower. We could not find, in this chilly present, a tale to help us recline on the pavement’s stone.
