The Stranger ~~ a Poem for Tuesday Platform

.I am the stranger,
why won't you let me
into your heart
You are admired
by this one, still I haven't
the courage to tell

There was a time 
you were approachable,
then self-centered not
You love yourself now,
there is no room for me,
I dare not ask

So we shall live
our lives apart,
could you love me
like I love you
Love not fulfilled,
is love always wasting,
always I will pine for
your closeness again

Inspired by:
"to the  stranger who has loved you 
all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart."
 Excerpted from
"Love After Love"
by Derek Walcott

Additionally, while writing his I was reminded of John Hinkley Jr's obsessive fixation on Jodie Foster (Wikipwaedia link)

Ah! Interesting take... makes Wolcott's musings seem insidious.
