Amidst total strangers !
So strange it was that
even I felt a stranger in my own reflection !
The day drowned like the sun into the sea
And I drove myself home
crawling through the silent deserted streets
The moment I opened the door
our eyes locked
as we stared longingly at each other.
And the book said :
take me in your arms, take me to bed.
And I said, I love you too !
and embraced the words.
Each turn of the page
Comforted our thirsty souls.
Our thirst quenched; we slumbered...
as the book lay it's head
on my wounded heart !
