    Looking at you is like looking at some kind of strange aberration
    For when my eyes rest on you I somehow see my own reflection
    Never met someone who's mental function is identical to my own
    Who understands my inner working as if they've always been around
    Whose life's chronicle inversely correlates almost parallel to my story
    How could someone be so symmetrical with me without joint history
    But even as I mediate on our similarity I truly respect our differences
    For where I am imperfect your strengths continue to run interference
    Pushing me to be all I can be without relishing in any inherent lack
    One of the ones who are able to see luxury even in the poorest shack
    Who has enough of an opinion to seduce you to their point of view
    But intelligent enough to know when it time to rethink and review
    Amazement at the totality of you is an uttermost understatement
    For I truly treasure and extremely enjoy our evolving involvement

    Nice expression...Something that most of us hope to find, a Soulmate...similar goals and interest...strengths where we are weak...someone who we can develop an understanding with that can't be matched...Well done poet,

    Thank you for sharing

    Sounds like a wonderful complement to all that is you, balanced in every way. So beautifully and exquisitely posed.

    Just me...

    turning the pages to read the incredible pieces I may have missed.

    I enjoyed this totally, but that line was a very nice ending to all the beautiful lines before it.


    Feelin'it souldeep!
