The Stranger

The smile fades
as he walks through the door
a stranger he is
someone she doesn’t know anymore

she lives her life
so different than his own
always together
but living a world alone

words of anger
they filter through the room
hurting like a knife
lingering around in gloom

the walls close in
with every breath she takes
suffocating her more
with every move she makes

The smile fades
as he walks through the door
a stranger he is
someone she doesn’t know anymore

  1. A poignantly written piece, CC. I feel the speaker’s sadness at its core. How many of us exist in relationships that have long since fizzled out because it’s what we know. Still, you’ve written it beautifully.
