Soul Mates?

A/n: This week is going to be a little different and definitely more exciting. I am going to write about love/romance but all of my poems will be inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe. I cannot match the genius of the man, but to be inspired is something that cannot be helped.
Just a note, his words may or may not be about the same subject matter. 🙂

Today’s poem is inspired by the following lines from the beautiful poem “Annabel Lee”

And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

Soul Mates?

You were a piece of the puzzle,
that was my heart and soul.
You had gone missing
since the day I was born.
When I first saw your heart,
read through your soul,
the missing pieces of mine
started beating in you.
Half of me was lost in you
never to be found or fixed.
All of me was in pain,
all of me was suffering.
And then you were gone,
my missing pieces still with you.
I was left, bereft with empty
holes to bear and mend.
And you went on to live
burying those pieces away,
pretending they never were;
ensuring they never would be
found again.

      Thank you Praveen. Most things that touch one’s heart are a little tragic in nature. 🙂
