Soul Flames

A soul from Mother Earth is set upon this Earth,
Broken into two, and thus the halves scattered.

A woman goes through life, feeling the pain and heartache...
She yearns for the love and happiness that seems only as dreams.
She goes through life seemingly alone, although with other men at times...
Though none of them can fill the hole that lies within her...
Thinking she has found that love to fill that emptiness,
She goes through life unknowing...unseeing.

Miles away, mayhaps in the same state, a man goes through life...
Searching for his love, the one to fill the hole within him.
Yet time and time again, finding only temporary satisfaction...
He too, feeling the heartache and pains that life and love have to offer.
So as the woman, he knows not of, he walks through life, unknowing and unseeing.

Hope, love and trust lost within their hearts...
They walk through life, scared and timid to love again.
The woman having been beaten and mistreated...
Not really knowing what it means to be truly loved...
Not knowing how it feels, she walks through life scared to open her already shattered heart.
Both hearts wounded and scorched, timid yet fragile...

Yet somewhere inside an ember burns within them.
The ember of life, love, hope, happiness and light...
The single flame that keeps them living.
The flame at first, dim and subtle...
Having been suffocated from events of the past...
Yet the flame ingnited, the other half of it's fire sought.

The woman, near giving up, shaking her head...
Having cried one to many tears...
Feels this heat, subtle at first, yet growing ever so slowly.
The ember pulsating and coming back to life...
Letting the flame begin it's growth...
Letting her heart begin to heal...

The man, calling out in pain and agony, wondering where that soul flame is that all seem to speak of...
Reaches out and is suddenly begotten...
His eyes flutter close for a moment as a vision passes through him.
The heat of her soul touching him.
The ember within him coming to life.

Their bond found, the fight begins...
The battle of destiny...Against time...against distance and fears of loving again.
The two flames ignited and slowly reaching out...
The halves found and slowly joining...
Years of hurt and pain...the two begin their search of one another...
Seeking and reaching out to touch one another...
The dim light of hope and happiness touching each as they do.

Wanting to give that hope to others in the process...
Once that still search for that soul flame...
The other half of their soul...
They reach out.

Two soul flames, broken in half when they were set upon this earth,
Yet lifetimes later, they find one another by fate or decree...
Giving hope to those that still define their search...
Finding happiness in love and filling the emptiness within them.

Giving hope to those that have found that flame...
Yet the one side a bit confused on what to do...
Giving hope to those that are losing that hope.

Two halves brought back together, after lifetimes of searching...
A single ember burning within...
Pulsating...
Burning...
Two flames brought together as one...
To become the Soul Flame from within.
