As We Own The Night

A Poetic Duet

As We Own The Night


I can call you a mirror

When I look into your eyes

My spirits guide and savior

Wipe the tears from my eyes


Beautiful you…

You always were

As our friendship exploded

Standing beside her


I can call you my earthly sister

As our hearts met and entwined

My eternal beautiful girlfriend

Who comforts me with her lines


Gorgeous you…

You always were

As our friendship shattered

The sadness before


As so many moons

Have passed in our skies

Knowing forever that

We will never hide


Delicate you…

I am watching you glow

As strong as ever

We have always known


Even the shining sun

Doesn’t completely reveal you

Your inner being colorful

Like a rainbow of sparkling dew


Wondrous you…

I bask in your spirit

Always feeling you

Ignoring our limits


The tides of the ocean

Greet our toes in the sand

Where ever my spirit

My heart holds your hand


Incredible you…

Bright, shinning light

Smile at the world

As we own the night

A Poetic Duet

Together Forever


Every time I think of you
I can’t help but smile
Because your sweetness dissolves
The worry that pains my eye
Every time I think of you
My world turns bright and colorful
Bad things just slip away
Because you are so wonderful
Your words melt my beating heart
As a new emotion swells up inside
Slowly, I find myself slipping away
From the tormenting ghosts of yesterday
As May flowers burst into bloom
I am held inside of your embrace
You keep me safe from many storms
Finding comfort that is tender and warm
In your shadow, I will grow
Together, we shall walk this road
Distance fails to matter anymore
When people are united from the soul
When the sun sets into the sky
Another day has passed us by
Every time I think of you
I feel the love between us too

So, we will grow everyday
Time will only bring us close
Although, separated by countless miles
I feel the love of your smile

Soul-Mates <3

imagesCA6WLJLT  My Souls Mate…

The very thought of just one person being meant for each of us, leaves us with a very unattainable love situation.  With the population of the world being over six billion, you mean to tell me that if soul-mates exist, I have a one in six billion chance of finding that person…?  Huh!  So, this makes me smirk a little at the vast ridiculousness of the whole situation.  And thinking about all of the people we will meet in our life time, how is it that, again, only one single person, will touch our souls in such a remarkable and memorable way, in such a way that we instantly know that this is the one soul parallel to mine, or yours, that I, or you, is meant to be with, for the rest of my, or your, life?  How can we possibly know that?!?  

There are many things to take into consideration here, as well.  Like how we grow and change so much every year.  With that growth, our wants and needs change too.  I certainly don’t want the same things that I did, say, ten years ago.  More recent than that, my wants and needs are different now than they were five years ago!  I have found myself to be much more independent.  I think about my future all the time, as opposed to living flying by the seat, sporadic and spur of the moment, when my motto was still ‘Carpe Diem’ and I’s sooner die than to live with any regrets!  Fortunately, as I have aged, I am much more calm and settled into myself.  I have found the real important things for myself and my soul.  I have, in my thirty-one years, really molded into my identity.

With that said, I am also a married woman.  I think about this concept of soul-mates and sometimes I like to believe that the man I chose to stand with for the rest of my life, is in fact my souls mate… but… also… the probability of me being so lucky as to find my soul-mate, against the statistics and all the odds, I find very unlikely.  Not to be a pessimist, but I am not very lucky.  Fortunate, yes… but lucky, no!!  If there is a lottery, I won’t be the winner.  If there is a raffle, I won’t be taking home the prize.  If there is a bet to make, I won’t be cashing in on that either… get my point?  I’m not lucky.  So, did I marry my soul-mate?  In the grand scheme of things, was I lucky enough in life to have actually found the mate to my soul…?

Maybe we have two soul-mates?  Maybe we can have a hundred!  If you ask me, I can tell you that my soul seeks different things from different people, but my soul also seeks things every day.  Maybe what we are looking for one day, can be found in crossing paths with someone.  I know that there have been times in my life that I’ve met someone, and only once, and they have touched my soul in a very memorable way.  Sometimes, someone says something, and it’s exactly what I needed to hear that day… strange how the world works, when a total stranger can mend some part of you, with a few words, without even knowing it.  It circles back to the paradox of this world, and how many unanswered questions we all have.


Is there really one person in this world that is meant for me? And when we are born, are we each cosmically matched up with one soul mate..?  With such small chances of us actually finding this person.. how many of us actually do? How many of us actually don’t.  Is the idea of soul-mates something that the hopeful romantics use to keep their hearts beating?  If so, what’s wrong with that anyway?  I don’t think that people should feel left out or tragically sad if their life changes and the person they thought was their soul-mate suddenly changes.  I think that is ok!  Maybe you have learned all you were intended to from that one soul, and now it’s time to move on the next one that’s going to leave remarkable and memorable impressions on your heart.

I like the idea of soul-mates… but my theory of these soul-mates is not traditional!  But then again, there is nothing traditional about me!!  That is all for now… ❤
