SOUL MATE

This is a different write for me as I tend to write more along the inspirational line. But I did write this a while ago and thought it would be a nice one to publish here today. Happy Valentine's Day!

SOUL MATE



Image


Your presence lifts my spirit

I want to hold you near.

Look deeply into your eyes

And say 'I love you dear.'


But how can I express it?

Words can never explain

This overwhelming passion

Which brings both joy and pain.


Image


Looking in your loving eyes

Even hearing your voice

Sets my heart and blood racing

And makes my soul rejoice.


Your absence makes me lonesome.

My heart aches all day long.

I yearn to feel your closeness.

In your arms, I belong.


Image


The stars and moon shining softly

Reflect our silhouette

As we glide in unison

To our intimate duet


Why don't we stop pretending

That we are only friends

I've finally found my soul mate

And my love never ends.

Hello Ellen. I love the last stanza of this poem, particularly:
"Why don't we stop pretending

That we are only friends"

I honestly believe that the best love to have is the love of your best friend. To settle for someone who isn't now seems to me unthinkable. I've made the mistake of doing so too many times in my life.

I love the entire thing, and at the moment I can definitely identify with the theme. Your use of simple everyday words makes it better, in that anyone can enjoy the feelings you portray. The flow is wonderful, and the rhyme works.
Thank you for sharing this. :)

As always a beautiful and soulful writing flows from the tip of your most poetic pen. Loved this maginificent tribute to love. There is absolutely no criticism to be offered about the piece of word artistry. You said it all so well.

Your gentle nature just shines in this and is a real tour de force about love and affection. The two go together laughing along life's path, and your words match the emotions beautifully:

' The stars and moon shining softly Reflect our silhouette As we glide in unison To our intimate duet '

Some would say that finding a best friend is secondary to instantly falling in love .. maybe thats the slow boiling feeling that lasts longer than a furious
heat. To suddenly discover you have both is a touch of magic. Long live that magic!

Spent hours trying to find something to criticise (a fib!) .. no show, sorry. x
