Strangers we be, Feigning lovers. All gone.

Fading fragment 

Of flickering feelings.

A stranger and lover both.

A silhouette,

Yet I know your face.

A haunting beauty.

You a persistent emotional, 

pained phantom.

Why won’t you let go?

We strangers dressed as lovers, sweet whispered deceptions

Or was it cowardice?

So, my lover

Your words to my ear

Flow wrong.

Language strange,

Barbed,

But subtle and hurting.

That silhouetted mouth drawled, Dreamlike,

Unintelligible.

That, 

Or I chose not to hear.

It wouldn’t be the first.

That a reason

As to why

Lovers in strangers

Silhouettes skins we are.

No...were.

Not right to for the mind

To keep close

To you.

You blackened husk

With hair amber-burnt

And rubied-lips,

With smile ghosting.

I’ll see you 

in my waking nightmares.
