Lost Souls


Have you ever met someone for the first time, but in your heart you feel as if you’ve met them before?
– JoAnne Kendrick

When I first saw him, something in my soul stirred.
I looked up at the heavens above for confirmation;
the universe nodded towards me, and the stars lit
a path to the being that intrigued me so.
Somehow, I had come across him before. It was as if
I knew him without ever meeting him.
A chain to link the lost, loveless souls. And then I saw
his lips move; my knees quivered, my vision blurred
with the tides rising in my eyes. I knew him;
I had always known him.
Our souls, birthed since the beginning of time,
had floated in a fog of whiskey and past lovers,
struggling to find a way to ignite among the rust and
trodden paths. But then we found each other – a spark
of copper and platinum – and my God,
did our fire burn ever so bright.
