    How can you say it isn't about perfect union? They are completing each other, perfectly. This poem is about the joy and ecstasy a couple finds when they create a perfect union. (Report) Reply

    This poem is a best example for the perfect union.Really it takes time to create perfect being.It may also read as a poem which celebrates the birth of the upcoming baby which shares the nature of both mother and father. (Report) Reply

    This deserves a place among the world's great original poems - and should translate well.
    But will the person who posted it check the end of the line 'can easily' which looks ungrammatical or wrongly punctuated, and correct the spelling of 'stitches', and just check it all again?

    Perfection..The kind of love that knows no beginning or end...the kind filled with tragedy and bliss. The perfect kind that one cannot survive without the other. Walking this planet with a hole in your heart the shape of another...you become one and take on a new being. One of perfect love....perhaps too perfect from the beginning to ever last....just one lifetime...so...you see them in the next. (Report) Reply
