An Answer for Some



Human was a powerful beast, for its might
the gods did fear.
So one night at the feast, they drunkened its soul
with tampered beer.

When in deep sleep, the gods acted fast.
To their own ends, many spells they did cast.
To split its feared and destructive soul.
When done, forming male and female
out of one whole.

Split into two human beings it was lost.
And to rule the world, gods had to hide love
at all costs.
But some found love and able to fight,
they ruled the world with the human might.

And that is why since man has been, the heartfelt urge
in every dream.
The missing piece of soul and mind of another
with yours to bind.

And the hurt when two miss, or when found
the eternal bliss.
That justifies existence and forces the lonely
into persistence.
