Strangers In A Second - Poem by Caroline Guedes

Strangers in a second, that is what you are
Past lovers, future haters
When did the colossal change occur?
Was it while I slept, was it while you were at work?
Tell me what happened to the perfect family?
It was thrown out the window
like a stale piece of bread
Did you forget how much we meant?

Strangers in a second, soiling each other's good names
Old compliments, new insults
When did we all just drift apart?
Was it while she was drunk or when he travelled far?
Tell me what's to become of this home
Will I ever visit you again?
I'm old enough to know it won't be the same
But am I strong enough to deal with the pain?

Strangers in a second
That is what we are
