Soultaker

Updated on September 08, 2011

Careless and wreck less you travel in your shoes

You roam the pavements in search for a soul to abuse

Like a wicked spirit you sweep the earth’s ground

You slither into the mind and speak your foul sound


Whoa to you, for your life just saddens a place within

Watching you repeat the very same sin

Hasn’t time shown you some valuable lessons?

The rope isn’t tight I see you keep pressin


Like a thief you came and took what isn’t yours

Empty and lifeless a heart left with no core

Wounded and crippled you leave one to be

With no vision or sight for one to see


You drain the life and murder the soul

To ignite what you can’t attain, lighter fluid to your coal

You spark the match and set to flames

A monster in its flesh that no one could tame


You lay your hands of misery down to rest

On the front of every woman’s cavity chest

Extracting their individuality and making it your own

Feeding your mortal by eating her flesh and bone

      I think part of your point is the idea of wanting to break out of the cycle of what you call repeating the same sin, right?

      Well its more or less one point of this poem. Its about a person who uses people to make themselves superior. Someone who takes and uses and spits them to the curb when done feeding off thier energy. More or less!! Thanks for stopping by.

      Vinaya, Thank you for your insight and thoughts it is appreciated.

      smiles :)

      Good poem Erica, as CindyVine said in one of her older hubs- "ENERGY VAMPIRES". They take your energy and drain you like a dead battery in order to build themselves up. Its a good thing you see he is that way so you can get away. :-)

      J., Thanks yeah I was hit with some bitter truth last night that will set me back a bit physically but hey it is what it is. But the sad thing is that he may have known and did it anyway. Thats the killer. But you live n learn and hun boy have I just learned its not confirmed yet but once it is and if it is then I will pray that the light shine over head.

      superb superb superb...........very nice...best written..the lines of to 'ignite what you ....is perfectly written voted up...that's i was waiting for..but in last para...the words individuality could be tooled out. and last line is very childish compare to what u wrote above so fine. try to make it fine to, be complete from top to bottom....don't hurry..and never think your poem is going to complete in few lines take long way in your imagination...may u not write all...but think for long..it will make u patient and full of completeness in ur writing

      sorry if hurting...otherwise marvelous poem...what i can picked out suggested as u my friend..take it positively.

      WOW! Again.. way to tap into feelings that I know we have all experienced one time in our life. We have all encountered people like this.. Great feeling and emotion

      Birds, I try not to let him. When he is around I feel him like a puppeteer he gains total control and breaking that has been a challenge. I work each and everyday at it. Taking the power to control a human mind is quite the task. Especially one who was under his spell for a little over a decade... Thanks :)

      I've known a person like this and thank God they are no longer in my life. They leech and suck and drain until there is nothing left. It's good you see it and are breaking the cycle. Best wishes for you bella.

      Bell,

      That was INCREDIBLE! I think this poem was your best yet, you have a very vivid imagination, and it shows within every poem you have written. Even in your story your writing "The Ballerina and the Sad violin". shows that. as usual keep up the good work!

      I can feel the pain through your words. Men like that don't deserve to live. Karma always gets back at those who hurt others. Wonderful poem. Voted up! I'm glad you told me to read it. :)
