Like Stranger


Even though we are related with blood
Our life seems unconnected
We are reluctant to converse lightly
Like a stranger in a room
Like someone on the wall
There's a thick glass separates us
Prevent us to get closer
Even though we are living together
We are ignoring other's presence

Even though we have known for a long time
Our silence seems never comfortable
We always irritated by other's interruption
Like a stranger in our garden
Like someone on television
There's invisible space between us
Barrier us with unease
Even though we cross over every day
We can not open ourselves more

Even though we have lot things in common
Our mind always take a precaution
We can't find a mutual agreement
Like a stranger in cover
Like someone in war front
There is a thin ice walking peace
Ready to break the fragile ground
Even though we should understand other's feeling
We never agree with other's action

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
