Strangers in New Horizons

Thu, 12/19/2019 - 11:07 -- krose18


I don’t know you-- you don’t know me.

How about we bridge the gap of strangers?


Surface level smiles-- restrained gestures

Cover up a wealth of complexity that lies in what is unsaid.


Gradually space closes-- carefully stories are told.

Chips arise within the composed persona revealing underlying emotions.


The stories told-- the interactions

Shape my view of the world and the people within it. 


The stories told-- the interactions

Are all I have left as I once again leave for new horizons.
