We Die As Strangers

We Die As Strangers

A Poem by N.A.

We all start off as strangers

and we all die as strangers

Each universe within us

is infinite

We can hardly count the stars

And nobody knows me better 

than I do

And I don’t know everything

In my dreams 

In my subconscious 

are unmeasurable amounts of secrets

Secrets I don't even know

The isolation doesn’t scare me

The illusion of company does

I know I’m alone

But sometimes I get confused

My thoughts can make a shadow 

into a lifelong menace

And your company

are just beams of light 

and loud vibrations

or sometimes 

they're just glowing words on a computerscreen

You struck a nerve 

Quite literally 

And I see my own inaccurate vision of you

And your vision is inaccurate too

When you accidentally brush against me

That illusion passes through the hairs on my arms

And that’s all I ever wanted to say

That the passages between me and company

are something extraordinary

This is solitude at it’s finest

It has been nice dying with you strangers
