strangers seem the same

By: Shelbi Henny

wondering in the hallways of solitude
enticing the images of blowing your mind
restless souls slept while we danced
a kiss froze the moments
and your touch speed time
suffocating on dawns
hiding in shadows that seemed dormant
to desires that plagued me
burned by past encounters
I want something
I need something
though isolate my being in fear
and I know that you was once a stranger
turned lover in a matter of days
and though I shouldn't long for you
I still call your name
replacement is crazy
yet necessary to fix
routines of meetings and departures
I hate
this prolonged division
safe to say I mute pain
and heartache
moving through motions that seem the same
