Kindred Spirits

there is this lingering memory from the past
which haunts me day and night
an echo reminiscing the days gone by
accompanied by a sweet whisper
as if carried by the whistling wind
with an angelic voice caressing my ears
as I travel back in time…

a countenance which I can vividly remember
but can’t seem to fathom where have I first seen him in my lifetime
you invade my dreams and I caught myself entering a meadow
with bright, illuminating lights of different hues
enveloping my soul, lifting my spirit and forgetting all my cares for a while
an echo from the past which I often go back to
a lingering memory of a dream within a dream…

twin flames meet in different lifetimes
and you could be the soul my heart is trying to search for
the face of an angel I could see
but it felt like a distant memory
deep within me, I know you are the missing piece
and when the Perfect Time comes dear Kindred Spirit
you would not just be an echo anymore as we finally find each other…

When a Writer Falls In Love with You

Remember that time I told you when a writer falls in love with you, you will never die?
That is oh, so true for my love flows eternal and runs deeper in time,
It is engraved from the innermost core of my being and infinite, boundless
Beyond time and space, for I give it freely and not to be begged for.

A love that is beyond mere words and sweet whisperings
For ever beating long after the soul leaves the body to go back to its true Home.
Stories of you will be written as my love bleeds eternal portraits of your serene face enveloping my mind as it drifts away…
Characters which will remind me of your traits will be created on and on.

Poems of love only for you will be composed time and again,
With every beat of my heart, your name will be the only one to be uttered
I will not run out of words to tell you how much you mean to me
Call me a hopeless romantic but that is how a writer was born to be.

When I decide to give my heart, every written word will be dedicated for only you,
How can you die when I can create a thousand fold of stories in which I will let you live in my heart forever?
With every ink that I bleed, you are the one I will only think of
Yes, when a writer falls in love with you, you are forever alive!
