“A Stranger”


“Hello there,
who are you?”
I ask the person
in my room.
She sings,
she dances;
she smiles alot ~
she’s the person
I think I’m not.
“Where’d you come from?”
I hate to stare;
I know you see
my evil glare.
How dare you come
and laugh at me;
mock and taunt,
you nasty tease!
“How’d you get here?”
I need to know.
I don’t know you;
you should go!
“You know me!”
she just laughs and says.
I close my eyes
and shake my head.
A little familiar
from way, way back;
I may have seen her
in my long, lost past.
I cock my head ~
well, maybe so;
but that was
very, very long ago.
“You remember me!”
she gently smiles and sings.
I softly whisper,
“I think you should leave.”
“Don’t you miss me?”
she wants to know.
“If I knew you ~
maybe so.”
She laughs
and turns to leave……
“Wait!
Do you know me?”
She smirks;
“Oh, I think I do.
Once upon a time ~
I was you!”
For a fleeting moment
I can see my face;
not a stranger
in her place.
I sing,
I dance;
I smile alot ~
I’m the person,
I think I’m not.
She stands and waves;
but not for long,
I watch her turn
and then she’s gone.
