Déjà Vu


The Curtains drawn open
The lit torch handed
The ball rolled onward
All waking me up
Thrusting me to the truth
Reality of the déjà vu.

I stand at its gate
A sigh of laden future heaved
I look up to the sky
It stares freckled blue upon me
I crane down my head
And my spirit knows it is.

Yes, the inner believes
This is where it’s meant to be
But the outer doubts it so
A tearing strain between two wholes
Two wholes but two halves
Battling for the action whistle.

But then, through the curtains
I march forth
Bearing the torch
For my rolling ball
Onto my present former land
’cause all’s a cycle of déjà vu.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
