Some souls

I reason with your shadow
“It’s been so many years.. why do you still linger?”
it sits on the edge of my bed
its back turned to me
while a weak candle flickers
on the bedside table
“The door is open, let go, so I can let go too”
it says nothing, knowing, as I also knew
that some souls have planned
their meeting long before this life time
and just when life had nothing else to offer
just when they had nothing more to lose
tormented by despair
they sought each other out, in a brutal and violent collision they
destroyed one another imagining that love was nothing but pain
spending forever trying but failing to heal.
