    Contemplation of a soul-tied relation,
    The subject slowly enters into my mind,
    For like the fiftieth time.
    I know that at this point in my life,
    I shouldn’t try to explore my curiosity.
    It’s a standard that I know I’ve set,
    A grievance to God I can’t forget.
    I guess it’s a part of the territory,
    Of my vulnerability.
    The longing for that feeling,
    That I belong to someone,
    And that they belong to me,
    Becomes a part of my collection of desires,
    You know how I desire affection.
    I think of how it would feel,
    Before, during, afterward,
    As we move forward, sideways, backward.
    It’s a focal point,
    On the race track of my brain.
    But there are other points that somehow overtake,
    Like the what ifs and the what would’s,
    To whom would I usher in pain,
    And the disappointments that I would apparently make.
    But just to think about it.
    Is that wrong?
    I mean thoughts are naturally going to come.
    But I guess I’m safe if I don’t put a name,
    To the place of, to the face of,
    That ordained special someone.

    Wondering, thinking would it would be like, and who it would be with, yes, you can't help but wonder. And one day, a name will be attached, but until then, you wonder....nice introspective write.
