Kindred Spirits


It can happen unexpectedly
When kindred spirits meet...
souls become united,
for but a moment are complete.
It is a gift and yet a curse
this bonding of two souls.
Joy is rent with sorrow
like a kiss of burning coals.
Seers the heart with passion,
Brands the heart with tears.
Leaves the spirits breathless
until Reality appears.
Yet I would not avoid it,
For it is a burning rose...
A gift forever cherished,
Where midnight fire glows.

We absolutely need more writers like you. I am in love with the idea of kindred spirits already, so thanks again. This moved me, in a lovely way.

Thank you, Fluffy! I am in love with the idea of "kindred spirits" too! It seems to be something I deeply yearn for!
