Not One

We are not one
Such as we see in parks and peaceful places.
Those who began as two and
—Through long years of searching
And longer still as soulmates—
Have become one.
Now grey-haired and golden aged,
They walk hand in hand
Among memories of a lifetime shared.
Their bond is time.
We are not that one.

We are not one
Conceived as one but born as two by divide;
Who appear as one but see as two
Through different eyes.
Twins, entwined by like minds
Hidden behind mirrored smiles.
Separate souls so similar of shape
As to seem a single form.
Two, connected by a common code
Of blood and bone.
We are not that one.

We are one
Who began as one,
Grew as one,
And through the cycle of centuries
Found form and function lacking in flexibility.
Then did the one extend itself,
Expanding beyond its boundaries
To become
More than the sum.
One became we.
We are this one.

This infinite loop feeding back and forth;
Ever higher does it climb,
Ever brighter does it shine,
The endless echo of it's laughter
Singing throughout time.
For this one
All Imaginings are made possible,
All dreams become real,
All things living are bound
By love eternal.
We were this one.

And then you were gone.

With your loss, the loop
—Now made finite—
Falls from blinding heights.
The light fades to stars
Twinkling in the night before winking
Into nothing.
The sound of singing
Turns to screaming;
Idle whispers on the wind,
Broken and breathless.
All that is left is none.

No one; no we,
Only I now,
Only me.

I am the empty shell
In which your ocean's waters once sang.
I am the wilted bloom
That furled and unfurled
To the beat of your heart.
I am the husk
Turned to dust in the darkness,
Forever floating
In the vastness of your void.
We are not one
For you are gone, and I...

I am not.

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

allisonflin: Without a doubt the most well written story that I have read on this site. Informative, discriptive, well punctuated. Then we have the story itself, which by the way I am waiting on the edge of my seat for part two of, the characters are more than likeable, you feel them and their emotions...

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Emma Tonner: This book was amaazzziiinnggggg I couldn’t get enough and the pages basically turned themselves. Cat is living life as a normal girl when all of a sudden she finds out she’s royalty! What I wouldn’t give!

Nanasha: I thought I'd written a comment on this story, but for some reason, I guess it didn't go through. Anyway, so this story is intensely addictive. I liked how the author uses established mythology but then gives it a unique twist. The idea of goblins all coming from the head of the king is an ama...

izzymerchant: This book is truly special. The plot, the characters and the way the story flows is so engrossing and magical that I found it virtually impossible to put down. The character relationships were particularly fascinating and Melenthia's character was fascinating. Cannot wait to see what happens next!
