Dear Stranger

Written by: Rhia Madison Thomer

Please stranger, overtake me I implore,
for I don't want to know myself anymore.

I took a bullet to my brain, deluded memories 
were all that were left to me?

Please stranger, take away my name
for it does me no good in this game.

I took a safety pin to my tongue, but still the aftertaste,
the metallic tang. Morbid I watch the blood drip down.

Please stranger, take my place before the mirror,
for perhaps you will see all the clearer.

I took a sleeping pill, are these memories my nightmares?
Or are all these nightmares all my memories?
