I shall live badly if I do not write, and I shall write badly if I do not live.’ Francoise Sagan

Twin Flames (dedicated to Alejandro)

You talked of love
But my heart could not hear it
I talked of love
But your mind made you fear it

Always at odds
The timing so wrong
But this bond of ours
Stayed unfailingly strong

We were once great lovers
Then my body grew cold
Its warmth turned to ice
By wounds new and old

We tried to be friends
But time could not erase
The taste of our kisses
Or their lingering trace

Twin flames born to be together
But so often forced apart
Caught in a battle
Between head and heart

Pride has been our enemy
Misfortune our greatest foe
But this love will endure
Wherever we go…


  1. And..Goodness! Rumi...I've read many..many of his
    sayings and poems...He's amazing....

    Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi was a 13th century Persian
    poet, an Islamic dervish and a Sufi mystic. He is
    regarded as one of the greatest spiritual masters
    and poetical intellects. Born in 1207 AD, he belonged
    to a family of learned theologians....

    1. Hello Willie. It's good to hear from you and to know that you still follow my blog. I'm not sure I get the connection to Rumi in the context of my poem. Is part of your message missing?

    2. No! No! I really wanted to refer to
      the mention of Rumi on your sidebar
      at the top there...

      Your poem is perfect..Well done, and,
      yes, nice to hear from you again via
      a poem and a post..! Take Care..! :)..
