    Have You Ever

    I want to know
    Have you ever loved someone
    So deeply without the labels
    Labels meaning he or she doesn’t have to be
    A friend, a partner, a lover, a soul mate
    Get my drift
    Imagine what it would be like
    To just pick a person
    You’ve never seen, you’ve never touched
    Well maybe not in the physical
    But they can touch your heart
    Just by the sound of their voice
    You’ve never made love to their sexual principle
    But you have with their mind
    Conversation’s so good
    You find yourself up at bizarre hours in the morning
    Enveloped in their thoughts
    Wanting to be apart of their dreams, your
    So deep into a parallel world
    That it hasn’t even occurred to you
    That you have yet to meet this person
    But looks mean nothing at the time
    Because they have everything
    You’ve been looking for
    Something that you have a hard time finding
    Because he or she is intellectually stimulating
    Touching topics that you would never discuss with just anyone
    Your deepest thoughts are revealed and
    You never realized how naked you’ve become
    Because you’ve said things that will make you vulnerable
    Things that you refuse to take back
    Because you feel a sense of trust
    In this being that intrigues you so
    So you decide to finally meet after hours of exchanging words
    To discover he or she isn’t what you anticipated in the physical
    Because you were so caught up
    With the person underneath the skin
    Cause at the time looks weren’t an important factor to you
    Because this person makes you feel so alive
    Takes you out of that box
    That you keep yourself locked up in
    Freeing you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually
    A combination that’s so hard to find with good looks in the package
    So you speak to see if there is a familiar voice to this face
    And it turns out that it’s indeed the person
    Who had you wrapped up in conversation so good
    But you’re disappointed because the looks just aren’t there
    That’s when reality hits you with two choices
    So what do you do in a situation like this?
    Do you take his or her hands in yours and
    Continue to look pass that one fault?
    Or
    Would you let them leave with some part of you?

    You spend all your time looking for someone that can capture your mind. You build a picture of how this person should look in your mind, but once you met them you go to war in your mind. One thing you have to remember once you've found someone that captures your mind is that looks only last for a short time.

    This is a deep write. It wouldn't matter because The connection that
    is Intellectual and spiritual will make up for the looks. I don't think it
    should matter but everyone has different perceptions on this topic.
