I think the ending needs a bit more punch so it can follow up the rest of the poem better, but I'm not sure what to do about that. Suggestions appreciated :)

I Do Not Know Much About You

March 17, 2018

PROMPT: The Unknown

I do not know much about you
I have never worn your shoes,
    been inside your mind,
    felt your enthusiasm,
    trembled at your pain,
    retreated from your nightmare terrors,
    glowed with nostalgia at your deepest memories,
    or watched your train of thought roll by.
I do not know what things stir your spirit,
    what deep passions land your feet on the floor every morning,
    what injustices shake you to your core.
I can guess these things,
    but in the end
    you are you
    and I am me
And we do not know what it is like
    to have lived each other's lives

    This is a really unique response to the prompt! Not was I was thinking at all when I saw the prompt, and I love that you thought of something so different and then composed it so well. Awesome job on this one :)
