some people say that déjà-vu occurs when
two parallel realities converge for a moment;
when an alternate version of oneself decides
to mirror the actions of another life, another time
as if there are universes interwoven like twine
and where they overlap is where we often feel
like we have been in a place before, have done this before
have made the same mistakes or said the same phrase before
although we know all too well that it’s not the case.
maybe there is a version of reality where we’re both okay
and I can one day feel like I’ve been there before.
