Strangers

I saw you today, after such a long time
Must admit it was a pleasant surprise
Yet it had such a “stranger” feeling
Was it just me
Or was I expecting something…

I saw this huge wall
A wall I couldn’t break down
You were here, but you never arrived
I’m trying to make sense
Of these unknown happenings
But I can’t

I guess unwillingly
I didn’t want to realise
Come to that painful realization
All suddenly feels so lost
All these years
Seems too vague, like it never happened
Why is there tears in my eyes
Why do I feel like I have lost something so significant
When everything was just a ‘could have been’
Betrayed by my own feelings

I saw you today
