Deja Vu

by Lyrical Aku

I had a sense of the past 

of looking into blurred mirrors   
        past memories that filtered thru opaque walls of the future
cracks of linkage between a gift of the present 

and the mystery of tomorrow

silky laughter and deep hearted joy 

forgotten pains and cluttered sorrow
Beautiful roses with thorns of remembrance

                  dreams in the day that never realised
visions of the past silently beckoning
              Hope for the future 
                      Prayers for the past
I had a sense of the past

of thorn hearts and chilly smiles
hurts that run deep
                    and no hope of solutions
People in bondages of history

locked in their committment to the old
                  of bittersweet love 

                               of visions tarried

                                       and aims lost
but also renewed sources of inspiration

I had a sense of the past 

I had a sense of  'Deja Vu'
