Grasping at Worlds

Grasping at Worlds

Wait, please wait
oh, where are you?
I see you as I look away
don’t leave so soon

I can all but just recall
a distant place
I know so well,
but not at all

Where am I there
familiar strange
Was it this life?
or dreams of day

For an instant
oddly home
a breeze, you’re here
and gone

Another world in just a dream?
or by my side
lost in my own

What are you
should I know?
forgotten scent of long ago

I look away
for better view
I just can’t place
this déjà vu
