I must be an expert
at making you smile
because somehow
I achieved this goal
before I ever tried
I was only being me
nothing special
so it must be true
what they say
(whoever ‘they’ may be)
the soul finds its mate
 two hearts.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  3. I agree with this, wholeheartedly. The heart, the soul, the chemical makeup of a body just knows, nearly immediately.

    • I also think not everyone is lucky enough to experience this… or the timing may be terrible…

      • That’s true, and I wish that weren’t the case. I have two friends, my mom, and a co-worker, for example, who I don’t think have ever had the experience of meeting “the one”. I’d wish that blessing for everyone. The thing that breaks my heart are the people I know who’ve had it, but then lost it. I question whether it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

        • I think I had it… but I lost him. I think I may have even found it a second time, but the timing was all f-ed up. Or maybe I never truly had it at all. So here I am, the most pathetically romantic person on earth, and I have very little of what I write. I suppose that’s why I write it.

          I came very close to abandoning this piece. I was very unsure about posting it because it’s painful. It seems all lovely and beautiful but I kind of cried when I wrote it… kind of cried when I read it… and kind of crying right now.

    This is lovely, Sandra. I agree, I think maybe the finding is effortless. It’s the keeping that takes work.

  9. This is sweet and optimistic. I knew Harry was the one for me when I met him. He however, took some convincing. That fact left me feeling insecure about our relationship for a really long time. As if he might have felt I was not the one for him. We are well past that now, thankfully.
