It Wasn’t So Long Ago

We didn’t see the stars that night. There were so many clouds in the way, but we waited, facing the sky on a plain, hoping to see a small light appear behind the pillowy darkness.

Then, drops of rain rushed down on our faces the moment a star appeared and we gazed at each other, narrating repeated history through eyes exhausted from pain; it wasn’t so long ago.

We weren’t suppose to be here, someday, on this plain, hitherto, love’s renaissance.

No, we didn’t see the stars that night, we felt them, as the first time my rough hands touched your face, your strength became my weakness, our universe consonant.

Facing the sky on a plain, we weren’t suppose to be here, still, we gazed at each other through eyes exhausted from pain, narrating repeated history, hitherto.

My Divine Deja Vu

Where have I seen you before?
A familiar feeling reminiscent of a lost love
Hidden in the darkest of places
brightening the dimming lights of a shaded moon
Forever still in a framed abstract painting
Wishing the present was the past
Erasing memories of regret with joy
Binding time with parallel universes
Looking on to what we will become today
Watching our lives play out like a silent movie

Oh! What we would do to love young again!
In your eyes you have lived a life with me
A future filled with endless possibilities
Where the sun will only shine for you
The breeze will only warm your beautiful face
And the rain shall lotion your skin lavender soft
Let me be your earth
And surround you with all my love

Where have I seen you before?
Could it be you live in my dreams?
If so I shall close my eyes
And never awaken me
For I wish to stay with you there
Where we fantasize of running away
to a place
Where the sun never sets
Yet stars shine when you turn off the bedroom lights
Where waves forever crash
Yet the blue waters calmly rock you to sleep
And the sky forever blue
Only to dusk when you tire

Where have I seen you before?
Could it be we met in a past life?
If so may death come and take me back
Where I open my eyes in this old new world
and forget the obstacles that sit upon us now
I turn to see your angelic smile
The greatest of good mornings
Like an ancient Goddess
Announcing the arrival of the sun
Take me back
Open my eyes to this old new world
Where we are tragic lovers in a greek poem
Disobeying rules for each other’s warm embrace
Rebelling against the world for the taste of each other’s lips
The envy of the Gods
But favored by Aphrodite

Oh! What we would do to have today’s love yesterday
Let us keep forever tomorrow
Carry on our love in kindred souls
Where we will see each other again
A familiar feeling reminiscent of a lost love
My divine deja vu
