Broken Bliss

Broken Bliss

Emily Krinos, Junior Assistant Editor

I do believe in soul mates. I believe in stomachs beating to the rhythm of butterflies and rosy cheeks.

Do not mark me ignorant.

I believe we come across many pieces of our soul. This doesn’t mean we will hold them tight forever.

Our grips will tire and they will drift away.

 

I do believe in soul mates. I believe in warm, knotted hands.

Don’t chuckle at my innocence.

I believe the full potential of love is so strong that it must be minimized to a period of time.

I believe our souls are scattered across this world like stars and although we might collide in a

Moment’s time, the end result is explosive and broken.

But wasn’t it beautiful while it lasted?

 

I do believe in soul mates. I believe in feeling completed and connected.

 

And I do believe in goodbyes.

I believe our souls are fractured.

I believe a broken mirror can never truly be mended but I can still see my reflection in every shard.
