A Gentle Slavery

Updated on April 9, 2012

The world may covet what they do not feel...

seeking things that should not be real...

obsessed with relationships true or false...

where two are perfect fits...

or so they thought...

being short sighted they know not what...

thinking it is a matter of fate that joins two hearts as one...

Is it really love though if two seem compelled to join?

Ask two who know this thing...

see if they aren't sometimes singed by the attachment...

when what is wanted counts for naught...

when emotion is a matter of fancy not thought...

when all that's past must be dealt with not laid aside...

looking for one who is perfect becomes foolishness...

the fool you are attached to and the one staring at you in the mirror...

one in the same and both must acquiesce....

give and take are the prevailing mode...

wounding each other without much choice...

who would ever choose such a thing...

when the ring is fancy and frill...

what is felt is much stronger then will...

all promised things between such two...

blood oaths and shackles without room to move...


if pleasure can be found at the end of pain...

the two souls in one can find their peace...

there is a profundity in this...

a situation not to be missed...

yet this place can be found by any normal two...

they just must bleed for it all the same...

don't say the soul mate doesn't exist...

your just jealous and that is all.

      I still feel her in my sole and she's been gone 7 months. Everytime I try to contact her with.unconditional love I get nothing but her anger in return. I wrote a song titled "still waters run deep" That is because I pis es believe her Scorpio is my sole mate. I sent her the song she claims to not have listened but, I begged to differ. I still feel her all around me and like to believe " its only a matter of time" reading this was good for my sole tonight. Thank you -Lyrix

      Thank you for the beauty of your prose. I love my soul mate in May and I have often wondered, is that the only chance we get in this life, only to be reunited in the afterlife.

      Your words are so profound, and yet so haunting. But stunning.

      Thank you for sharing,

      A sole mate and true love is irreplaceable I think. A great heartfelt piece of writing. Thank you for sharing.

      The reality of what you are saying touches me to the heart. I know that it is true, and worth having even though having a Soul mate does not by any means come easily or comfortably. Yet, I find the knowledge very comforting, and hope inspiring.

      Micky, I married my Soul mate. I was not the marrying kind even but she was very diligent in proving me wrong. I am not sure she succeeded but she got me to give her a ring and we are still married after 6 really rough years.

      Dave, I am sorry that you lost yours. Know that she isn't gone for good and is but waiting for you on the other side. I am sure she even is happy that you live on even though it has been rough.

      I discovered my true soul mate 48 years ago, only to have her ripped from me by an act of violence. Since then I have had mates, but never equalling my soul mate.

      Brother Dave.
