its vapors

as the mist, its vapors
turns my air
to its breath
i can feel that i knew you
once
before i knew…

you burned me
with your fire
inside:
i have always known you

and even when i did know
i didn’t know yet
yet i knew too…
that all along
you were building a mystery
that had dissolved into me

  2. Oh, yes, I can relate to this beautifully expressed poem too.

    I have felt I have known people before when I first meet them–because I have.

    Lovely, Robin.

  3. I loved it Robyn!
    So beautifully done.. 🙂

    Although I feel it’s a disorder- but often I feel I have known them- maybe from previous lives.. 😀

    Mystery..? Yes, for sure!
