 Beyond Terra

*DeJa Vu*
I mark the time of our meeting by the still beat of my heart
stroked by the momentary skip of the rhythm of it's chambers.
Unnerved, I am frozen solid as seconds pass into minutes.
Nothing moves or is released from me, not even my breath_
astonishing as it sounds… I still stand and I still live.

Even in this moment of death, I exist neither to take nor to give_
only to simply exist as if existence is all that is needed

There, within the face of all faces, I see a dream come true.
True to life, true to hope, true to the wonders of a wish.
As sure as a coin is tossed into a well_
I am captivated entranced by a spell.

Another minute has now passed before a shallow exhale escapes gaping lips.
An exhale forced by nature totally without consciousness_
for how can I think, how can I move my eyes to blink
blink- blink! No! I dare not for fear you’ll go within a wink
call your name, I say, softly now
call your name as I have done time and again
for we have repeated this, a million times _ we have
me and you
In my dreams, in my mind, in my "Deja Vu"
