Love, Pain, Poetry, Words


I used to call you a stranger 

I shook my head and laughed 

when you asked me to marry you

“You don’t even know me!”

Grinning, you said, “I know enough.”


The days passed 

I fell in love 

Fondly I called you 

my home, my safe place 

The steady rhythm of your heart 

comforted me like nothing I’d ever known. 

Nothing else mattered 

when your strong arms held me close.


But just as time comes for everything 

so did it come for us.

And for reasons I will never understand 

now you have become

a stranger again.
