                         if you were to look long enough into my eyes
                                 you could probably see frayed images of her
                                              burnt deeply into my retina's  

                                  ages were spent looking at her purest form
                                     sleeping softly within my tender gaze

                                             years have past, many years

                                       and still I wake up reaching for her
                                         the memories nor the hope will
                                                            relinquish me

                                         they drag me through the deepest
                                                  and darkest of emotions

                                           my heart still quickens with hers
                                        my mind still picks up on her thoughts

                                              it's true, soul mates are forever
                                                  in one way or the other

It's a masterpiece. You brought pain through your words, you really locked a piece of yourself into this! That's what I've always liked about your poetry I think, you don't just make something that sounds nice or has relevance.. you paint your soul out a bit in each little line. It's been a while since I've reviewed anything of yours and I have to say you've developed even further as a writer! I am honestly and sincerely impressed with this piece Joshua, it's going into my favourites.

We all have that one significant other burned onto our hearts. Scared by memories and the delusion that they'll return into our lives. J'adore!

This is wonderful. I loved that you paired the poem with an image from Shutter Island, also. One of my favorite books, and the movie was great, too. This is poignant and brimming with tender nostalgia for a precious love that fleeted through your life like a slipping dream. Exquisitely written and burning with the embitterment of reality. Very nice.

Wow! You must have really loved this girl. I agree that soulmates are forever, it's like a part of them lingers inside your very being when they are gone. I can relate, in a long distance relationship way. Anyway, So Beautiful!!
