Kindred Spirit

Kindred Spirit

When I thought I gave up on myself,
when it felt like I couldn't care.
I put my heart up on the dusty shelf and most days I'd just sit and stare.
Tossing and turning wide awake in my bed, 
Thinking how things got so wrong.
Not escaping troubled thoughts in my head and just stringing myself along.

Kindred spirit can you hear my call,
Kindred spirit you light up my soul. x2

I never saw the crossroads coming I thought it was just another day,
I was so tired of running my mind so fractured and. frayed
Well that moment I now forsake as it ceased with the holding of hands,
Letting go of what we've always had to take at night we listen to our favourite bands.

Kindred spirit can you hear my call, 
‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčKindred spirit you light up my soul. x2

Enriching that smile begun by her beautiful eyes,
Been blessed with her grace and care shoulders back and head held high.
Her opinions so very bold and fair,
She almost took me by surprise.
At first I didn't think she really noticed me but I surely noticed her,
then suddenly to me it did occur how grateful I am for you. after all we've both been through forever I will cherish what you do,
After all we both go through forever I'll be in love with you.

Kindred spirit can you hear my call, 
Kindred spirit you light up my soul. x4

You describe the love you have for the love of your life. I like how you reminisce about things you once did, that was something you had cherished and now there was an absence there. Throughout the story, I could feel the deep penetrating love you felt and how this love illuminated your whole being. Great narration. 

Favorite lines

through forever I will cherish what you do,
After all we both go through forever I'll be in love with you.

After I read the lines above, I had a warm, fuzzy feeling. It gave me goosebumps. Well done! 

I just noticed it was in the Lyric & Song category. Now, I can read it differently. The repeating lines should have clued me in. I thought this was an elegy at first read. Well done :) Metaphors often go straight over my head.
