soul mates

This was a 10 minute challenge between friends

Our mortal bodies trap timeless souls
Our histories and lives last forever
Deprived of the chance to finish the last line
The last page of a book left un-turned
We are roses that do not decay
Sitting in a pot without the water of life
We are stuck
Filled with haunted memories of past lives
Un-moving and and incomplete
The lightest and happiest moments become so lurid
And the pain to remember what we had
causes our hearts to become rapacious
We are dead but live eternally in static
