"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks

A silver box held my soulmate,

But I never looked inside. 

I worried and fussed about how I wrote,

And my soulmate's gone and died. 


That silver box still sits unmoved,

And I'm certain no one's there. 

And if if there were,

I doubt I'd really care. 


I'm a poet, not a lover,

And that feels just fine to me. 

I haven't needed a soulmate so far,

Just a pen and good old me.
