Deja'vu

Deja'vu

A Poem by shallimarRose


walking dark corridors

of a never ending dream

strangely drawn

had I been here before

loneliness loomed in the drafts

furniture covered in sheets

cobwebs  seemed familiar

the dust bunnies 

that seemed to know my name


in the corner I saw it

an old dressing table

lifting the muslin corner

exposing an old mirror

I become fearful

                             ......why am I so afraid

I stare in amazement

at the reflection gazing back at me


it was my long lost innocence

                                   ......and I mourned her loss

I enjoyed the poem. I have dreams and I get Deja'vu. I wish I could Deja'vu the lottery numbers. It is odd how we fall in places we have been and we know people before the first meeting. Dreams have great power. If we understand our dreams. We could know peace in life. I like the story and the ending to your poem.

Loved this one Rose. To find something we lost or imagine finding it again can be at times a fun experience and at time harrowing. I experience Deja'vu from time to time and have heard an explanation why that happens, something to do with left brain and right brain, but I like to think it is just some cool mind magic that finds us when we least expect it.

Haunting and beautiful. You nailed the feeling of Deja Vu with
"had I been here before
