Soul Mate

A soul mate is not perfection of shallow attractions
But a love that many read about so unique and rare
Realness that is deep and sincere - a lasting bond
One not sugar coated or glowing with bright light 
What a priviledge to know - it would be so profound
To share harmony, such balance - ying and yang
Fitting like a glove with fingers out stretched
Neither held back together encouraged to grow
It's like pen and paper and mind connecting words
Creating a union of mind, body and soul

    I love how you ponder this question...i feel like this is the spark when you meet someone and suddenly all the layers of personality and civilized disguise drop because they're no longer necessary.

    Shaz, I keep reading and I keep admiring your writing more with each poem. The ideal mate and relationship, what we all crave. I really like the give and take way in which you wrote this piece, the balance is beautiful. -Stephen
