like a stranger

yes 

you burned me again

reigniting the past through your dirty broken 

magnifying lens

hurt

i turned away from this nonsense

and toward my aunt whom you told me

in the same breath

died

harboring the question

have you no heart? 

to me

you are like

a stranger

stranger

when on holiday sometimes

it’s like i forgot who i am

after all the weeks and months of work

sometimes you need to talk 

or coax yourself out

then appear like a

stranger
