Please meet my heart.
The one on the left beats from experience. She’s the soul of stability. She’s the soul that shares a soul with mine. She’s been my place of safety for 17 years. She is who I’ve grown with. She has shaped me. She’s the quintessential mirror. She only reflects the best version of me. There is no place in my mind she hasn’t been. And no matter what she finds at every corner, she never judges. She only loves and accepts me more.
The one on the right is new. She is the mirror of my mirror. She is an instantaneous connection. The only growth we have is from today on, but we meet on a mutual ground of: I see you, you see me, we see each other. There is no need to catch up, there is only a need to go forward. There is admiration and respect and reverence.
This is the duality of our hearts. Safe and new. Stable and uncertain. Forever and fresh. My heart, in the shape of these two women, just set off for an experience of a lifetime. OF A LIFETIME. And I feel: Love.
