The Shadow of My Soul

Updated on February 19, 2013

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.

      Gypsy Rose Lee 5 years ago from Riga, Latvia

      Voted up and beautiful. A sadly poignant poem. Enjoyed.
