The Shadow of My Soul
My soul was open and free
Then the shadow came
Darkness covered her
Like a mourning veil
I am in mourning
For something I can not have
I ache for lost love
Once before in life's dance
I detached my soul from this entity
Cast it aside for a new life
Said "You are a part of me no more"
And walked away.
Yet, it returned
And my desire cuts deeper than before
I am empty and void
Confused by this turn of events
Can that thing that is part of us
That thing that seeps into our blood
And runs through our veins
Give us life and death at once?
Oh, I think so
And I will weep until I return to dust.
