Twin flames are two beings split into different bodies that share part of the same soul, thus having a more intimate relationship and a life-changing impact on each other. This piece is centered around the special connection between two individuals and more specifically, the reunification of two halves of a soul. When twin flames interact, it’s as if the energy in the atmosphere immediately changes, yet at the same time, everything apart from your other half ceases to exist. A sense of comfort, familiarity, and intense attraction is also present – it’s almost like they’re a mirror reflection of who you truly are as a person.
A buzzing warmth arose from their bodies.
They weren’t even touching,
Yet their smoldering gazes turned into feather-like caresses that left their skin burning with an inexplicable desire,
Leaving trails of goosebumps and hairs standing on end.
The stars above were ecstatic as they witnessed the encounter of the two kindred spirits that ceaselessly blazed throughout the night,
An encounter that they themselves had arranged billions of years ago.
The two souls were instantly captivated by each other’s celestial presence,
And became hyper aware of the space around them.
The few meters between them had become a hot, dense sea of stardust.
And like awakened fireflies escaping into the night, these particles danced, mingled, and glowed.
Within seconds, the air had drawn them closer, a familiar sensation they knew all too well.
Their eyes locked, unwavering, as they took steady strides towards each other.
The short distance had suddenly seemed so vast- it was as though an eternity had passed until they had crossed the only physical barrier that kept them apart.
But they had finally made it.
Now, they could clearly see the unmistakable twinkle in each other’s eyes:
Windows that reflected specks of moonlight that glimmered on the surface of heavy tides,
Of longing and unconditional admiration.
Eyes that mirrored their own truths, promises, and passions.
In that moment, they knew that it was more than just their bodies that yearned to feel the intangible, fiery heat within.
It was more than just two hearts that harmoniously beat in unison.
It was more than their intense understanding-
How they could silently sense the emotions and inner voices of the other.
The irresistible connection they were tied by was simply not confined to the walls that encapsulated their true essence.
They were each other’s necessity.
More than that, they were a part of each other.
Together, their psyche became divinely enlightened,
Bursting with vivacious hues.
And with the slightest touch, their fingers met at last,
With dazzling white sparks flying from their conjoined tips.
The stars rejoiced exceedingly at the blissful collision of the twin flames beneath them,
Whose souls had intertwined,
Two halves reunited as one.
Their destinies infinitely connected.
I was basically listening to music on the bus when I came across a song that initially led to me writing this piece on my phone while I got back home. Electric Love – by BØRNS was a song I listened to years ago as a pre-teen that had me daydreaming about summer nights with friends, fireworks, and falling in love – and it didn’t fail to evoke those same emotions and visuals again when I listened to it years later. Being a hopeless romantic myself, I’ve always been intrigued by the concept of soul mates and had my own thoughts or theories about it. I’m a big believer when it comes to energy, karma, and how we’re all divinely connected and it got me researching – with the hope that I’d be able to find something that would genuinely connect to my thoughts and theories. That’s how I discovered the astrological/spiritual concept of “Twin Flames”, which is what I based this post on. With this piece, I strive to capture the magic involved in what I imagine an extraordinary encounter like this to be like. Thank you for reading this! <3
