I Dreamt About A Stranger

I dreamt about a stranger

It wasn’t you

It was someone else

We never speak

I hate seeing this figure, why can’t it be him?

You are always just out of reach


I dreamt about a stranger again

Every time I think

Maybe... maybe it’s you

But it never is

I hate having these dreams

Always the same


I dreamt about a stranger once more

I can’t see his face

But i‘m always so sure that it is you

Maybe for a second, it is

The back of your head, your posture, so familiar to me

But it’s not you


And I realise, I have just dreamt about a stranger again.
