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

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
