Soul Taker


You take my soul away-
Feeling as if it is okay-
You laugh at me and think it is funny-
But you don't understand what I am-

I am not normal, but I am human-
I am a body, but where is my soul? -
It is hidden in the abyss-
Writing and searching for answers-

You take my soul away-
Feeling as if it is okay-
You laugh and think it is funny-
But you do not understand what I am-

I am pain, but I do not feel-
I am ache, but not caring-
I am love, but for something else-
I am scared, but happy that I am-

You may still laugh but can you sleep-
Can you feel yourself and not others-
I am not yours soul taker-
For you are nature-

You take my soul away-
Feeling as if it is okay-
You laugh and think it is funny-
But you now understand what I am-

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem when I thought there was no way of escaping where I was living. Everyday I stayed there...my spirit became more numb and sad. I felt hopeless. The good news is that I am no longer living there! ! : D

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
