Kindred Spirit

Kindred Spirit

My kindred spirit
we grew at the same time
but thousands
of miles apart
Destiny brought
us together
eventually and
a chance to restart
A connection
from our distant history
Knowing you
but how?
Lovers, perhaps
Yet it is a cruel love
One of deep emotion
Then and now
Could it be
Master and slave
from centuries past?
Crime and punishment
Why else would
love be so jagged?
Hearts that will never mend
Hidden in its diminishment
Is a lesson to be learned
this time around?
I ask as I heal myself
in silence, alone
I am no slave to anyone
At any time
This treatment
I can no longer condone

    Living in another dimension sounds like a good idea….I’ll see if Doctor Who can take me there…….

    I’ve wondered some of those same things, and I like your conclusion, Christine.

      Yes Lisa. Someone recently suggested that to me. She is an intuitive reader and a believer is previous lives. It really resonated with me and made a situation much clearer for me.
