#1
We are all just strangers in the dark.
petrified, lonely
afraid to even move
lest someone know us.
We are all just strangers in the dark.
desperately reaching out
clawing at the walls
hoping someone will come to us.
It will be ok,
We are all just strangers in the dark.
drowning slowly
on the shadows
choking them down
like soft tears echoing on the tile.
I was just a stranger in the dark
until you found me.
a warm light held between us
embracing, shining out.
Starved of everything,
We were just strangers in the dark.
holding on to each other,
waiting for the sun to once again
show us the way.
