Autumn Stranger

I knew a stranger once				

a stranger like there never was,			

upon a shadow and a distant sun			

I chanced this shade drifting some			

draping my path in apathy			

shrouding our meeting within obscurity.		

Sights upon the coming night			

I stood beneath a warmth in flight,		

embers reaching down beneath this distance	

that trace my soul up from the dimness	

to cast my shadow afore my steps

yearning for a star to breach the depths.	

And so, I met a stranger once

a stranger like there never was,

with eyes that held that faded star

with all its warmth upon my heart,

this stranger fading with the light

meets just another waning sprite.

Here these two stranger’s blessed

in crossing to share a shadow’s crest,

coaxed by a sun in twilight’s heat

as the stars themselves they stretch to meet.

So she passes me and her eyes divert,

the sun has faded and the night is curt.
