Something many people thought about. I knew some people who would say they never have, and that their life didn’t revolve around finding a soul mate. I called bullshit.
Maybe they didn’t sit and look at every man and woman that crossed their path and think “this is the one.” That the person who walked into the coffee shop, or stared at them a bit longer as they stood in the supermarket line, was the one they would spend the rest of their life with. But deep down, everyone strove for a connection. A person who would never give up on them even when they wanted to give up on themselves. A connection so strong that even when they were hundreds of thousands of miles away, love really knew no distance. Love conquered all.
When I first laid eyes on Parker, I knew it was true love. I couldn’t get him out of my head all summer. His broken soul stole my heart with a look and a smile. I held him in my arms, and that day I found my soul mate seemed so long ago. So foreign. So forgetful.
Truth was, I was out of goodbyes. I was out of strength. Once, I would have waited while this man who was my everything walked out the door. I’d have held on to every second with bated breath, waiting for a call, a letter, an e-mail. Not anymore. I had fallen out of love with my soul mate.
How did that happen? It was years of heartache and giving my all to a marriage into which he never once put the same amount of effort. The crumbs he threw me now and then were enough to keep me sustained, but now I was starving for love, attention, and companionship. What he was currently offering seemed wonderful, something that maybe a year ago I’d have jumped on. But all I heard were promises that would be broken. Parker was my soul mate that once was.
Releasing him from the hug, I stepped back and looked down at the man who had once been my everything, who was now nothing but a ghost of the man I once loved.
