Stranger in my Room


Who are you?

Unsure if I should recognize you.

Your face,

your lips,

your eyes;

were they mine,

or were they always yours?


I have been confused

so much

by this time.

This thing is contagious,

like gravity,

and insanity.

Don’t let it get its hands on you.


Stranger in my room,

let’s puzzle through

who you are,

and maybe I’ll learn

who I am.

It seems to take longer

these days

to cut away the layers.



we’re not as sharp

as we once were,

or maybe the eyes

have been obscured,

but if we keep at it,

we’ll prevail.


Coming to the end

of our tale.


who are you?

Are you an angel?
