Strange Friends

630 4 3

Hello my stranger.

I don't know you,

But, we could be together.

If your trust in me is true.

You possess something I admire.

Something that I lack.

Energy which desire.

Before I step forward, I look back.

To the times when I've trusted.

Invested my hope in a cold hack.

The hinges of my heart-safe have rusted.

Please be special John, be my Jack.

It takes courage to step forward.

Bring the right ingredients for the stew.

Brew a soup filled with stories.

Where friendship bubbles, moments brew.

I'm compelled to know you better.

I wish I had the courage, which I lack.

I don't want these moments lost forever.

Answer the mystery, fill the gap.
