Soulmates

I was drifting
alone, unknown
I kept reaching
for what,
I did not know
I was empty, hollow and cold.

But, an idea was borne
from the chaos and pain
of my mind, my soul
of someone unwhole,
unfilled, unfulfilled
someone wanting,
searching,
for someone like me
the other half of his soul

Then, out of the blue
we meet..
two souls finding
a voice in the void,
calling our names,
binding our souls,
filling the emptiness,
fulfilling a need,
making two halves whole.

But fate is fickle, capricious
and cruel,
for the promise of forever,
she holds aloft,
unreachable, unattainable,
tempting and tortuous...
must we then end it
and despair?

Fate may be cruel,
but Love is kind and generous
and in her arms
two souls may still
find peace
together at last
in the graces of Eternity
where you, my lover
will finally be mine
to have, to hold,
forevermore..
if not in truth,
then at least,
in my heart,
in my soul,
in my dreams!

The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

Makayla Danielle Waits: Just finished one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I connected to it in a way I can't quite put to words. It was as if this person was speaking to me, and me only. Telling me her stories and struggles and how this person handled them and how they worked or how they kept trying; but all...

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!

Laraine Smith: In addition to being humorous, this story is visual! This is also a beautiful story. Keep up the great work! :)

CalvinPeat: This is a great concept, and you've done a largely excellent job of capturing the voice of Mal.You convey Mal's inner struggle well. Perhaps, though, you could reflect the hope in verses 13-17 of Psalm 90 a bit more. A suggestion: in the current version, Mal seems to be losing hope in the idea of...
