ARE WE NOT BUT STRANGERS

Are we not but strangersgroping in the nightacross the ethereal voidreaching out to touch,be touchedthrough a tenuous, fragileconnection!We stretch our acheing fingersand our vulnerable heartshungerfor some recognition,solace,acceptance.We offer the nectarof our loveand the poisonthat is our pain,flowing deepwithin our ageing vessels,cutting usor soothing uslike the seasonal flow of rivers.We can’t extend our handto greet each other,nor can our eyes meetover a glass of wine.Are we not then but strangers……and yet……there is a familiarityin the sorrowful whispers I hear,in the songs that are sungthat make me danceon moonlit nightsor crythorns of desperation.I know your lamentand your passion,they beat an ancient tunedeep within me.I know your anguished painand the great beautythat sleeps in armoured sheets,I also share that bed.I can taste your sensuality,as a sweet, ripe peachkissing my lips…………and yet……are we not but strangers?
