Stranger

Stranger

A Poem by Laconic Meraki

I know I should probably leave,
Seems i'm always in your way.
I know I should probably let you go,
But I can't seem to walk away.

The fire still burns with passion because I keep it alive. I relight the flame but each night, it never fails to die.
Like a relit cigarette, it never taste the same.
It's like I melt to ashes-you throw me the blame.
Smoke will end up all that remains.
All that's left of me.

It's like you're a stranger, a stranger that doesn't love me anymore.
I feel us fading away more and more each time you throw to me the ground.

Like a stranger - I'll walk out that door. 
Like a stranger - I won't take the blame.
Like a stranger- Can't hurt me anymore.
Like a stranger- I will forget your name. Like a stranger- I won't love you anymore.

Love never died easy.
"Like a stranger - I'll walk out that door.
Like a stranger - I won't take the blame.
Like a stranger- Can't hurt me anymore.
Like a stranger- I will forget your name. Like a stranger- I won't love you anymore."
I did like the above lines dear Laconic. When we become strangers in the same house. What is left? Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

A dying relationship and it appears to have a long drawn out end. More painful I think, than a sharp break. I would say finish ut and invest where you are appreciated. Sad poem.

I wouldn't let go.
Until I was ready.

I thoroughly enjoyed those first two stanzas and the passion, confusion and hurt they portray. The final two stanzas, although displaying the determination of the protagonist not to be a victim, seem to have lost their poetic significance.

A stirring poem, somehow I feel guilt in reading it. The re-lit cigarette as a metaphor is very impressive. I have read several of your poems and they have all moved me to emotion, but this is the first one I could articulate. There are many more I would like to review in time. You are a talented shaper of words and I hope you continue to bless the world with poetic thoughts.

The last stanza, with the repetition, is very powerful. And the ending left me soul crushed. Good job!

Thank you 💙
I appreciate you taking time to read my poem. And for the feedback. 🤞
I really like this one. To realize the end of something you hoped would be forever and still be strong enough to turn it back on them. Of course, for them, it doesn't matter. They've already shown they have only half a heart. But where it really matters is for you. Protect yourself, your heart and persevere. Search until you find the one with the key to your soul.
