oh it took me so long to realize...
we are soulmates
but not meant to be together
not meant to be lovers
we are meant to be close
meant to be perfect for each other
everyone thinks it’s weird
how we always do everything with one
but it isn’t odd.
it shouldn’t be weird to have a soulmate who isn’t your lover
we are impervious to these statements
an austere society thought it foreign:
two people whom are soulmates, but not lovers.
simply because we love each other & we’re of the opposite sex, they say “you must live like loving partners!”
but we are just living.
not for one another. but together.
we can explore life
be there for the other
dance, sing, love, laugh together
we can be comfortable in the arms of a soulmate and be ourselves!!
because we’re soulmates. but that doesn’t always mean we have to be lovers.
