"A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke."

"There are many stories and myths about the existence of soul mates. All around the world, there is talk about your one true love, the one you are suppose to be with forever. Hinduist and Buddhist believe that your soul can be reincarnated and live many many lives, but only have one true love that is considered your soul mate. Your soul spends eternity searching for their soul mate, spending each life looking for their other half. Sometimes you’re lucky enough to find them and reunite the love you once shared in a past life. In ancient Greek times, it was said that humans were originally made of 4 arms, 4 legs, 2 heads, and 2 faces. They existed happily as they were, but grew more powerful as time went on. The gods decided that the humans were getting too powerful and needed to be put back into place somehow, so they cut the humans in half. Each human now had only 2 arms, 2 legs, 1 head, and 1 face. They had to spend the rest of their lives searching for their other half to make themselves whole again. It became the purpose of life. In almost every religion or belief, and all throughout time, there has been talk that there is only one person for you, and that you spend your whole life trying to find them. I can’t help but think that this must be true. Someone, somewhere was made just for me and only me. Their soul connects with mine in such a special way and makes my whole life seems complete. They are the one and only, the one who owns my heart and soul and would do nothing to hurt me. I can’t say that you are my soul mate, because i simply do not know. But something in me tells me that we’ve been together once before. That our souls were bonded together in such a strong way that even now in a new life, i can still feel the connection we once shared. I think that we were in love in one of our past lives, such a strong and unbreakable love that the connection we once had has stuck with us. Maybe we are meant to be together, to experience a bond we couldn’t share with any other, even if it is only for a short amount of time. In no way am i saying that i’m in love with you, because i think that you only truly fall in love once in your life if you’re lucky, i’m just saying that maybe we have been lucky enough to meet each other again and rekindle something we shared in a life we don’t remember."

"Most things about me are hard to explain, I guess, like how I’m mostly delusional and live in a half-imaginary world but am also a realist to the core. I’m just a bunch of contradictions most of the time and I don’t like it, but I also do."
