We are strangers

You were born before I


In solitude


We did not share space

Then, and so it remained

You kept buying blocks

You wanted your island

You loved the loneliness of being lonely


Small talk does not exist here

Communication feels                                    unnecessary

Smiles a mere form of                                   formality

Hands raise                                                      for exercise

Paths cross                                                       when warranted

Observed                            celebrations celebrated


I no longer have that desire to know you

So we shall remain forever

Dwellers of single spaces

Extending both homes as we age

Building nurseries in backyards

Bearing fruits of space

Widening the area with its beautiful color of silence
