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 Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
