Back to being strangers


I still can't comprehend when it ended,
Still don't want to know it can't be mended,
Without you here I would never be contended,
We are now strangers with love undaunted,

Why do we have to be strangers in love,
Why can't we love ourselves the more,
Why do you have to leave until dawn,
Why didn't you tell me you love someone more,

Now all I do is try to memorize your name,
Yearning to touch for the last time your mane,
Since we can no longer pass the same lane,
I would not cry for strangers can love again,

Back to being strangers we have,
But your heart will always be mine to love,
Even if we love someone else this much,
I know one day our story will be sung to us.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
