Treasure Island

Lucifera Santez

(4th feb / Belize)

Dark Soul


A stone cold heartless body,
Decorated by running scars,
The lifeless eyes which stare,
Far ahead, in the anticipation f dark.

What were you thinking?
While you created me
Of ugliness and absurdity,
The world hasn’t seen

If you think I have beauty hidden inside,
You are so wrong,
‘Cause this repulsive exterior hides
The true devil beside,
Devil wicked and strong.

Yeah I am hollow,
Inside me there is a huge hole
Only filled with
Twisted dark soul.

    Your sense of right and wrong is enough proof that you are a bright soul not dark, lovely. (Report) Reply

    It's time to take back what is yours. So when you laugh it's through triumph and not madness =) Nice write though (Report) Reply

    Your poetry is too meaningful to come from someone who is repulsive, you are a blessing to those who read it and can feel your understanding of a subject they also know about, but haven't been able to express like you have. Being hollow can be a good thing, because you can write of anything and everything you want to. It gives you a freedom not everyone can have. You have no boundaries to keep you from going forward in life, and your soul is actually the light of your life, follow it faithfully and you will feel it's freedom. Write from the huge hole - it's actually a well of poetical expression and experience. Thank you for sharing your heart with the world. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    There is a tinge of despair here.
    The hollow inside is not a tragedy.
    That's when the heart and the soul seek to relate
    But you think it is the end of all things. no
    Bring the soul nearer and let the heart be deluged by its light.

    This poem is powerful in itself, because the heart is trying to express itself.
    I love it

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
