    ~or am I just crazy?~


    I remember things...places
    and faces I don't think I've
    ever seen...

    they come to me in the night
    season...in open visions...
    or closed in dreams...

    do they return to me
    with hidden messages
    from a past I can't recall?

    or are they angels, wishing
    to touch my mortality...
    & that's all...

    in those moments I sense
    sweet comfort, and warm
    familiarity...

    when it's over, I always
    wonder what's going
    on inside of me

    I've been taken to a house
    in a quiet neigborhood
    I've felt warm arms surround
    my body, and those feelings
    were too good..

    it feels just like I've been
    there at least a thousand times
    before...

    the sensations are so beautiful
    I always wish for more...

    The camera in my mind
    is full of pictures I can feel
    I'm not certain I can tell
    if they are fantasy or real...

    The mind will take you on an infinite - endless journey, won't it! I am definitely vibin' your thoughts on this piece...

    De ja Vu is truly amazing -- when you feel it, you know exactly what it is, and isn't it funny how it makes you call its name when the feeling of familiarity takes over...!?

    De ja Vu ... fo' sho!


    One :heart:

    This is wonderful!!
