Searching in Strangers
There are people you forget to remember and people you have to remind yourself to forget.
You find someone who takes the thunder, strikes you with lightning, and feel tsunamis on their lips as they cause an earthquake in your soul.
You hear their laughter in your dream and wonder if this is it.
But soon, you see their face in your nightmares and they’ll haunt you when you’re awake too. They start to play games of hide-and-seek, but when they leave they are gone, and nowhere to be found.
Still, you continue to search for their smile, their eyes, and their touch in these streets, in this town, in this city - and whoever else you meet, you continue to search for them in strangers.
