Déjà vu

You were not him, not even similar

You did not have a whirlwind
trapped under your skin
not did your smile
crack open the sky

You came soft and slow
your words undeniably mellow
I was on absolute guard
a cat on hot coals
looking out for the signs I knew so well
The smell of trust being burger-ed
and the tell-tale aroma of over cooked love

He left a name and that was about all
You swept through me

a storm without a name
Yet the aftermath whispers
“Déjà vu”
