The Joining of Souls

The Joining of Souls…

Tis but a splinter of the mind’s imagination

To look deep within the depths of our soul

Searching precariously for that of simplicity

That of commonality and utterly nondescript

Definitions colliding with lost expectations

Perhaps the murkiness has clouded our visions

Sight blurry but only because we have chosen so

For that which we allow to conquer us, shall do so

And that which is lost becomes buried deep and dark


But fear not, for the greatest treasures have been lost

Somewhere in dank holes lies all that forever glitters

And deep beneath the raging seas are sunken chests

And in hearts lie secrets of unprofessed confessions

Some treasures are not kept in a satchel or gilded box

There are those few who choose to gaze inward

Chances are not taken lightly, but as the only option

And eyes stay wide and forever scanning the openness

For the prize is never out of reach for the worthy


And the very lucky are awarded double vision

Seeing between their own lines and those of another

What lies in the soul of but one other individual

What song is whispered in the winds of their time sphere

How the music does spin the yarns of tales of love

Even when words have no position in the narrative

Words are spoken unlike any other possibilities

Thoughts of passion are harvested like the summer grain

And the magick of happening is finally released


But when one soul whisperer connects with another

Two bodies, both fleshed and upright on the surface

Both visible on this plane and with hearts beating

Neither suffering the point of a spear, nor the darkness

Paths cross and the inexplicable is beyond certainty

Each bears the highest of intention and willing

Each holds the light which the candles long for

The ignition of something passionate and powerful

And it grows to be a raging torrent of undying flame


One lover feeding the fire of their mirror opposite

While the other reciprocates in equality and perfection

Neither seeking more than that which is shared

Two souls that wish to abandon their singularity

And join in all eternity as one evolving thing of beauty

Eyes complimenting that which they gaze upon

Lips embracing as arms and legs wind and entwine

Minds becoming completely open to the possibility

Of something known on earth as perfection

Understanding Joining of Souls

This piece is a revelation of sorts.  As we look at humankind, some people are able to see within themselves and find their inner beauty/greatness.  Others are able to look both within themselves and within the inner workings of others, a rare gift indeed.  But when two bodies, both possessing the ability to look within themselves and within others, come together, only then can we see two souls coming together as one.

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.
