alone

who am I

when no one is watching
..there is a stranger in my house
she drinks earl grey tea and leaves half finished cups
in every room
she sleeps in the clothes she has worn all day
and showers just to keep herself warm
she studies feng shui
and moves my furniture
in the quest for the perfect
arrangement
but never seems to find one
half finished projects are her forte
she is much better at beginnings
than ends
she is a hopeless
seeker
emphasis on the hopeless
she is restless
and afraid
but is kind to others
though not often to herself
one day
i will discover i know her
our friendship is molasses
slow and sticky
but good in the end
