"Two Souls Mating"

by Jeph Johnson


We're continuously searching,

Digging deep in times of stress

Immortal due to death of virtue

Made alive with other's happiness. 

But hope runs dry with each transgression

Wetness overflows our well 

Its relevance can transpose Heaven

Or ignite the flickering flames of Hell.

Saving virtue demands patience

Though lust never takes its time

No one's born again in stages

Black cat's lives will number nine.

I still wonder, if indicted

Would salvation post the bail?

Souls are imprisoned when divided

Freedom rings to no avail.

Souls were not designed for mating

You see they cannot reproduce

He who covets hesitating,

Just as they say, is bound to lose.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Inspired by the apathy and refusal of those around me to display unending eros love, despite my obsession trying to prolong its existence long after it has died, 2000, 2017
