The Night Of The Strangers (poem)

A stranger loose and wandering the night

He’s not quite half the man he use to be

The echoes of his footsteps bare his plight

Where once was light despair he now does see

-

A stranger to himself he had become

What madness came to tear his heart away

From heights of glory cast into his slum

Just emptiness awaits another day

-

Somehow their passion burst into a flame

And words never heard commanded the scene

Till everything else turned into a blur

-

So stranger now walks in streets of his shame

Yet mid the teardrops a new hope does glean

That the next stranger loose might be her

That you have a creative potential is established in your poem with well chosen words for their sound and images and obvious meanings.Although I am no expert in this realm of creative activity I ,as you know, indulge myself in writing short creative proses in stead.Thank you and wish you a very happy new year.

We need to be sure in our choices of love. Sometimes it's friendship and not love. Keep the friendship in order to not risk losing the love.

Fantastic. Why must it be so difficult to say sorry?
