The Soulmate Parentheses (a poem)

 

Now he knows she is his soulmate

(For lack of a better noun

Designating the partner of fate

With whom one is harmoniously bound).

 

An equilibrium found and yet to conquer,

Between freedom and the pre-established:

(The paradox of destiny is to alter

Determinism with the accomplished).

 

Now she knows they are each other’s half

(For lack of a better formulation –

Love cannot be shown on a graph

As a mathematical equation.

 

Does one plus one equal four?

The ones we are not anymore,

And the two ones created by their complicity

Defining a unified multiplicity?)

 

Now they know they have started a novel

Of an existential kind,

A cosmology for the everyday vessel

Transporting them away from the blind

 

To the land of creation and order,

Surrendering and Mastery,

A kingdom with no other border

Than the horizon of their own mystery.
