I don’t know if I can believe in soulmates.
That there is someone else,
supposed to fit perfectly from the start.
I won’t let what has shaped me be trivialized.
That how my journey(my life) has affected me,
has affected another in the same way?
That from start to finish,
cracks left behind,
and ridges formed from times past
will fit perfectly alongside another’s,
and a proverbial click will match us together.
No, I don’t(can’t) believe in that.
But what I do believe in is:
somewhere, there is someone I can grow with.
to grow and to learn
and let our edges soften against each other.
And the gaps may never be filled,
something new can form.
And eventually -
eventually where you end and I begin,
can merge together but still grow forevermore,
and we will never stop becoming more than what we used to be.
Maybe we weren’t made for each other from the beginning.
But I wouldn’t give up the journey for anything.
You and I,
we make each other our best selves.
Still me. Still you. But together, infinitely stronger.
