Poem: We've Travelled Miles

Back when I was not thinking straight, and thought I was in love with the guy I lived with I wrote this poem. I hope that if we ever do meet up again in another lifetime we have resolved enough not to have to revisit it. Boy. That would suck.

When things were good between us, we were so connected. He even told me he believed we could have known each other in a past life. I knew not everyone believed that, so I loved that he felt that way. It meant we were in a similar place. The odd thing, though, was that after we were together a while he mocked the interests I had along that line. I never really understood why the seeming change. Given the things he said, by the way, I don't think he was just telling me what I wanted to hear. It really seemed he believed what he was saying.

We've Travelled Miles
by Elizabeth Alraune

We've travelled miles
to be with one another
crossed through centuries
for a love that is
ours for the making
Started lifetimes ago
it is being
our souls know the way
They've been this route before
The feeling
oh so familiar
leaves me wanting more
Finding me in you
makes me want to explore
In your arms
I feel safe, secure
And I know we'll meet again
just like
each time
