heart of a stranger

the truth is unwritten the words don’t exist
the heart of a stranger can never be known
angels and demons should never be kissed
are you still my darling or has that bird flown?
an idea sparks and is soon lost from sight
nothing I’ve seen yet has led me to you
paeans are sung in the depths of the night
should we recall we are just passing through

    I like these poems…the ones where each line is not really connected to the line before or after but you can weave your own story through them..I’ve read the poem three times and each time, I get a different story..Also..if you read the odd lines first (and don’t ask me which are the “odd ones” lolo) followed by the even lines..you get even more depth..I quite like this…try it…read the odd lines first then follow with the even ones and you get another really good poem!

    • You’ve caught me there, it was originally written as two four line verses with a rhyme pattern a, a, b, b, which I rearranged to a, b, a, b, and joined the verses together, editing as necessary, to make it, for me, more interesting 😀

    When reading this poem the first few times, I pictured 2 people passing each other on a street – of course in slow motion with wispy vapors swirling with a dark background and they were wearing raincoats but it wasn’t raining and neither of them had an umbrella but they were wearing sturdy non-slip shoes…. – hmm, I think I my train of thought just jumped the track and is now a twisted muddy mess. What was I going to say, what was my point?

    Loved both versions or all 3 versions? Mostly love the way you two think!
