Estranged - Poem by Sakhiwo Magwentshu

Dear you
Have we met?
Probably in time past
You before I
I before you
Blanketed by midnight stars
As the sky played midnight dedications
To keep us in tune with one another
I know not how
But I know you
I visit you in my dreams

Hey you
I hope we’ve met
My eyes seem to remember you
The idea of meeting you
Had been revealed to me
From the crack of dawn
You’re my fantasy
Let go release
Lose your illusions
Welcome to reality

Excuse me
I recognise that tone
But I’ll let you introduce yourself
You’ll give me your name
I’ll give you my surname
As we stand eye to eye
This place…this feeling…this people
We share a name

Like atoms lets join together
Eye for an eye
Mind for mind
Heart to heart
And soul to soul
We've been waiting for this moment

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'I think I've seen you before'. A line that has unofficially been recognised as the worst pick-up line. But what happens when it's, although its a cliche' its true. A moment of deja vu, leaving you with a mystical feeling. As a poet I tried to word the experience although it was not actual at that time.
