as the mist, its vapors
turns my air
to its breath
i can feel that i knew you
before i knew…
you burned me
with your fire
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

sometimes we feel a person before meeting him face to face. beautifully expressed robin. i am really happy to be back here.
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.
Another painting of inside…
lots of paintings in there 😉
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!
you just know… glad you feel it too 🙂
This is well thought out and circular. Me like!
end where we begin, start where we end. best that way.
