Parallel Universes

Here I don't exist I am absent from my life I haunt this hotel Walls crooked, twisted Like an old man's spine Decades off-kilter The rust and Sharp smells Entombed in London's bowels Fill me with horror Moments stick together like gIue In an endless déjà vu In this twilight zone

This is a really nice and interesting write, the concept of parallel universe is something which amazes me the most, imagine that there is a better version of you, a different one and there are infinite number of possibilities, schenarios for every decision you take, still it is only a theory, but I would like to meet another me someday, lol, I have heard many incidents of deja vu but unfortunately hasn't experience one personally, but this sure seems like a really interesting thing,

Interesting write Zara. This may sound strange but as I read your poem the image of an actress trying to make it in London theatre and feeling lonely and out of place came to mind. So many interpretations in poetry.

Very deep haiku Zara.. However haiku are about nature, you could call these senryu instead..
