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.

mikaylapetrodos: I really enjoyed the story and I hope you publish the next part of the book soon. the plot line was always easy to follow with plenty of plot twist thrown it. I think it would have been better to explain how some characters got involved in the story more instead of them just showing up.
