Unjoined Connection

My friend, I lay with you

More completely than I have anyone

Yet our bodies have never met.

And never shall they touch.

Still, I am intertwined with you

As the ivy is the mortar of the wall

and being thus I feel

You breathing life into what I am.

Long my soul will stand

Beside yours and honestly I know

That death shall have no power

To part two joined so completely.

This is beautiful and profound, sounds like God talking to us and if god could have a soul then of course it would join with us and of course death would have no power.Wonderful write Im really impressed. Best I've read in a long time! Keep writing you have extreme talent!

This is really beautiful. The convergence of two souls in this mortal journey...a kindred spirit is rare and a treasure. :)
