**** Arc Of Soul Mates *** - Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

The arc of my brain reshaped for
The room to fill senses and madness
Acronyms and seduction amalgamated
Boundaries of essence essentials
Drawing the lines of segregation
The day would come when the sun
Touches the earth and everything turns
To dust but it’s you and me
Remnants of love’s great
Bolstering history of ancient trade
Centuries left shying away


Remember when death calling on us
Gardens of soul mates winding
Thames River became wild
Kilimanjaro’s peak crushing to debris
Birds of Nazarenes cease to fly
Virgin Alice refuses marriage
Red nights seem eternal
The moon no longer shines
Sounds of music blistered the ears
Little house on the prairie abandoned
Cell phones stop ringing
Netizens quit surfing

Remember when our bodies were buried
Hurricane pays earth a visit
The oceans swaying and coastal flooding
The trees were browning
Snows avalanching
Icebergs melting
Catastrophes seem to elope with human casualties
Shrines were filled with chants
Worshiping our names
Oh dear, Oh me
What’s these got to do with us?
It’s the seals and bindings of our hearts and souls
Eventually capturing theirs
An epic….....

    Subject: Good afternoon, Sulaiman! it's afternoon over here.


    'Arc of Soul Mates' is a BIG poem. It dares to carry the weight of the eternal ramifications of LOVE - a subject so close to my heart because of it's profound ramifications and unimaginable abuse. 'Arc of Soul Mates' is a huge poetic tribute to love, though it appeared too weighty at first reading. It is a Victory song for love. Thank you very much. (Report) Reply

    It can also be said of this piece that it describes love in its purest form. True love shared by two unselfish individuals who are great at forgiving, has the power to move mountains, change the course of mighty rivers, transcend time and space and cause one to go joyously insane with bliss... It is the greatest force on earth, even when the elements and manmade disasters endeavor to snuff us out... even when we can't see the sun... LOVE is the light that shines through the deepest darkness...

    Absolutely beautiful and thought provoking

    **10**

    An Epic of good, bad and ugly all compiled in an astonishing tale of love eternal. Only you Sulaiman can combine all the elements and make it a journey of survival.
