No need for condolences. It's just a light poem that popped into my head about soul mates afraid to commit.

Your Name Should Rhyme with Mine
By Nordette Adams

He believes in soul mates.

The one he prods does not,

He thinks he knows her heart,

or what her heart forgot.

When they met, she wore past breakups

on the outside of her dress.

The messiness of earning trust

bound him in distress.

He's the one who invoked hope

of spiritual connection.

She's slow in mulling over fate.

He mistakes this for rejection.

Frustrated, he walks away.

Love should be more fun,

The ease with which he gives her up

says he's not the one.

(c) copyright 2009 Nordette N. Adams

The poem may have been inspired by
Wasted Time by Meshell Ndegeocello. The song ends abruptly.
There's nothing wrong with video clip.

I thought I had found my soulmate only to have her threaten and physically abuse me...Been there done that and it wasn't what I needed nor was I goingto put up with it. Then she tells me she found someone else in her life and she doesn't need me at all. Soulmate to me means two souls bonded together for all eternity but there are some who think it means "you're bonded to me, but I can do whatever". Oh well maybe somewhere, somehow I will actually find someone worthy of the title. Maybe.

This is very well written Nordette and is from the heart. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie.

... I find all this soulmate stuff fascinating. Even if intellectually one or other can't find the words to express this "something", surely both should feel their version of it (whatever it is!) if the two are kinda twain, or meant to be? So, if it don't come together, presumably there's no need to harbour regret simply because, as you surmise, they're not the match? Just askin, cos we poets speak a lot about it and I for one have no answers here. But I am very moved by Jerry's response. Do we have to fight for EVERYTHING that's beautiful, noble and pure?! Even a love that's just "meant to be"? Sorry to babble... Slick poem, Nordette. Think my name should rhyme with pine! :)) xx

LOL. Thank you, Regis, and you too, Karen.

Jerry, are you "Swamp Sass" who left the comment on my profile of Aberjhani at Examiner? Just curious, and I appreciate your comment on today's poem. :-) Love teaches us all lessons.

Love should be more fun,
The ease with which he gives her up
says he's not the one.

Your name should rhyme with mine
They could combine
And we could dine
Perhaps around nine
Have a little wine
That would be fine
So no need to pine (LOL!!!)

This poem expresses a great deal, Nordette. Love and best wishes,

You should delve into the poem-writing a little more, Nordette, this was excellent. I had a woman tell me once, as I stood there trying to get her to take me back, "You have to fight for me." I didn't fight for her, Nordette, and I have never forgiven myself. Nanette died nine years ago, seven years before our daughter finally located me. This one touched me deeply.
