"Too Strange" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"Too Strange"

Lately this strange feeling come over me

Under your skin there are lies

I cant help but feeling that, we should end this fight

You know it's strange enough to know that you have your doubts when you lie in bed at night

Maybe we're too strange to be right

No matter what I say, you see it another way

No matter what i do, never good enough for you

It's so simple can't you see, two strangers now, you and me

The effort was there and neither me or you was to blame

Stress and strains have been adding up

Lately I can't take the pain

It seems no matter how hard we try, results are always the same

You know it's strange enough to know that you have your doubts when you lie in bed at night

Maybe we're too strange to be right

No matter what I say, you see it another way

No matter what i do, never good enough for you

It's so simple can't you see, two strangers now, you and me

The effort was there and neither me or you was to blame

I know the feeling

I felt it too

The two of me and the two of you

Helpless hearts don't know what to do

Love ain't enough to make it through

Stress and strains have been adding up

And lately, I can't take the pain

      YES! That's it exactly, it does work after all. Usually someone has to lift the mask first and the other mask can be lifted. Either way, I'm glad you put it to rest for me, you described it perfectly.

      Eric,

      Thanks for answering my question and sharing what you think.

      In my opinion:

      Actually, as it stands, I think the picture does capture, and the speaker can be one or the other with this pic.

      "...Under your skin there are lies..."

      If she is saying this,with lifted mask and crying, her honesty is commendable- he does not have to be wearing, or holding a mask or crying tears to receive her honest message..perhaps by lifting her mask,(her old facade) she is revealing the honest thoughts coming through her speech in your verse.

      "Too Strange" , so of course these are thoughts, not absolute truths-great hub!

      Your right Pochinuk, I wish the picture had both with masks and tears, but this one only had one, so now it looks like one stranger, but maybe the male hadn't taken away his mask just yet... The picture was close to capturing what I wanted so I just used it anyway, but it wasn't exactly it.

      Eric,

      Gentle victory that's what comes to my mind as I have now, read and re-read your poem. It's hard to talk about too strange of things sometimes- the speaker in your poem did it! It is very interesting Eric, not high strung, so important in the image you are putting forth-

      "... It's so simple can't you see, two strangers now, you and me…"

      The strong thread of this declaration, builds the confidence for other things that are being said and going on. Inhibitions in relationships are so real, and hard to understand sometimes and adults "talk" about those things…to me, your verse captures that mood very succinctly.

      Your photo is well chosen for this hub. I think it can put the women or the man in the place of the speaker in this poem (What do you think?)
