    Love of the Soul

    Love of the Soul

    Like a man incarcerated for life who takes a bride on the outside
    I too am a man imprisoned never to physically consummate the love that I discovered
    A distant complicated relationship
    I am so emotionally drained
    Constrained knowing what we have and knowing that she belongs to another
    She gave her heart long ago
    And now she has given me her soul
    I must find a way to hold onto it forever
    While finding the courage to be content in doing so

    I could just let go
    However I have already fallen so hard for her
    I don’t know that I would survive hitting the bottom
    What if I hold on and decide to live the ultimate sacrifice
    And without warning she lets go because she must -
    Not strong enough for the two of us
    What have I gotten myself into that I can’t get out of
    This thing that we know as Soul Love

    I am changed forever
    The beauty of her soul and spirit gave me no choice
    There is no key to this locked door
    Still my heart is open with the realization that she will never be free to free me

    The love of the Soul
    That which completes me
    Often leaves me incomplete
    I am a half and she is my whole

    You leave me wondering about these mysterious women. Now I have lots of questions to ask you!



    A lifetime of experiences - some good, some bad, some happy,, some sad ----- all in the rhelm of what we call living!

    Darling...she is selfish. First of all I know this could just be a fantastic poem, but if it is true, run! Why should you content yourself with her make believe gift of her soul? C'mon baby, there are a lot of us girls out there who are willing to give you more than...our soul! Well, my soul's taken, know what I mean? BEAUTIFUL poem.



    There is a long long story - realism at its best - behind this write. Thank you for sharing in my world of words

    Is it better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all? I guess that depends on how well you can take the punches. I never was much for carrying torches, knowing me, I'd be too tempted to set something on fire with it. You do spin a yarn, SW. Top marks.



    Thank you always for your thoughts and kinds remarks... always even more appreciated when coming from a talented writer.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

    Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
