We Know Each Other

We Know Each Other

A Poem by The They
"

Do you know me? Are you the stranger?

"

The stranger walked

As the Moment shone from eyes

Betraying the soul

That shadowed the glory of its Revelation.


Fate locked two gazes

That knew of the other’s inner flame

A knowledge no words could hope to capture

Though both pass in opposite directions


Do we know each other

As we walk these city streets

Whose blindness we find so lacking

In the fleeting glance that passed us by?

It reminds me sorta of past lives, reincarniation so to speak maybe. Nicely done.

Outstanding, I can't help myself, I am becoming a fan of The They.

I like the last two stanzas but this piece really speaks to all of us that believe in instant connections.
