Stranger

Some friends even though you've known them for years, remain strangers. These people are just not open, they hide their true selves behind a veil of emotions, subconsciously. There is a certain quality, a kind of uneasiness which keeps them at a distance even when you claim to be the best of friends. How does it feel to be known in-and-out by a stranger? Or worse still, how does it feel to be that stranger?

As already i have told you, that i think iam one of those strangers...this is a better platform to discuss this further...
the veil that separates the stranger, i think it comes from trust, the stranger might trust no one...

The truest thing ever said about me, ironically, was said by someone who is not even a semblance of a friend "You will always be there for your friends, but you don't trust your friends to be there for you"

whadya think...message me on fb if you reply here

You're right varunda. It all depends on trust, how easily and how much you can trust someone. Strangers like these earn it by being there for their friends. More often than not, these strangers have one quality in common : They're good listeners!
