Stranger (Who Are You) - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

Life can be easy if you just play it cool
You may find a stranger like a precious jewel
Encounters with strangers are non committing
And you can go as far as you like and find fitting

For one night only you can express real love
You can let go and say things you never spoke of
Or you may encounter wild and passionate sex
That you forget tomorrow without being perplex

Well the stranger I met was almost familiar to me
So I went along with him using the hotel key
He was perfect - the one guy I always wanted
Not anticipating that my future will be haunted

At the time we met I didn't want to know his name
Now I am devastated because I made him fair game
I declined all his requests to get to know me better
And I threw out his information he left in a letter

Since - I think of him every day and often more
I've been searching for him but only find a closed door
I truly believe in my heart that he may be the one
But I was stupid and ended something before it begun

I'm standing here now with only a few pictures I kept
I don't know his name or address and surely I'm trapped
If I'm lucky he may find me or I him out here on the net
But know that's all I have left and with him I'm in debt
