soul mates

There you were as you last had been!
In that softest shape that eyes carve apart from a harsh world in compare
The lines of your form vivid on its contrast
Stood there with a presence of a storm that calls down Heaven's grace
Etched on the foremost front of tender thoughts
Recalled now to mind by recent ties to longings I strove to hide
I seek to once again conceal from self the burning light of want I have of you 1 comment

That light you lit in me was so unfair
It was a scorching spear that etched with fires and made tender those thoughts of mine!
You were beautiful and you wanted me so all of me I gave
Your storm raged and the grace did blind my eyes and made me such the fool!
From jagged stones had your form been carved into lies as temping lines
The contrast of your shape did mask the flat truths that are the workings of your spirit
I first recalled the pain of you before that face came blazing in behind

My sorry is need now fair memory
You are as you were from time we met to painful part
Was not it fair of me to want you for your spirits and be enraged as I was?
It is not at you I spilled these words of spite but only myself do I drench
I cover the pain of a loss I never earned to lose
I will take you in your true form and hide you back away
My love has since been shared and shared back with me again and this attack was not well founded

Farewell my never loved
