Soul Mated

I wonder if she

Have the same thoughts

As I….

Should I ask?

Why love has not

Taken her hand ?

From a warm soul

That could intertwine

Itself with hers

Just thinking

But with a intense stare

Seconds before I blinked

A tear drops on the floor

But somehow I couldn’t ignore

Before her second tear

Hits her cheek

I knew it

As I wiped it from her face

And I told her

About this empty space

That looked a lot like hers

Sharing our commonality

Telling her long ago my heart

Was impaired and broken

I told her

I had to dislodge this damage

With my own hands

That I had never

Replaced my emptiness

Just added paper

So I wouldn’t

Sound so hollow

When I walked I told

Her I’m ready

For commitment

Asking if she wanted

To be genuinely filled

And what we don’t have

At this moment

We could always

Improvise and build
