STRANGER
(3/17/08)


there's a stranger
in the house
someone
who's never been
here before

there's a stranger
in the house
doing
strange things
in stranger
ways

there's a stranger
in the house
speaking a language
quite indecipherable
comprising strange
syllables

you
have moved
into the house
but have actually
always been
here

the love
of my life
I have only
just recently
learned
your name

the stranger
in the house
is me
living now
and forever
in the realm
of you
