I Stand

I stand in the middle,
In this darkened room,,
I stand among love,
The feelings I have,
For an old stranger,

I think of the old stranger,
I dream of the new,
New I love,
Old I don’t,
Times change,

Is this a dream,
Is this real,
The love of the new stranger,
Inhabits my dreams,
My visions,
My future.

I stand admiring life
I never did with the old stranger,
I live everyday for the now.

I feel love and comfort,
Coming from the new stranger
I feel resentment and anger,
Towards the old

I am,

In love.
