Empty Soul


Empty Soul

I scour this desolate land
In continuous search
For who I am

Ice clings to my beard
Like fossilized stalactites
From millenniums past

The fires of hell can not warm
One inch of this wretched soul
For no flame can penetrate
This broken carcass
That was once human

The howl of the north wind
Will be my lovers song
And loneliness will be
My constant companion

The fruits of life
I will taste no longer
For the bitter taste
Has made me ill

Forever I am destined
To walk the ages of time
Eternally damned
By the sins of my past

Until the master of death
Claims his right

I find that writing helps me - a tormrnted soul is fuel for writing - keep it up

This one tore my heart. A life with no hope of redemption..unbearable.



this was a very lonely, very dark period of my life. i have since, slowly climbed back into living, and continue to strive to improve my life. thanks for reading, your comments are appreciated.

beautiful darling and yet you are not alone for i am with you in the darkest places!

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
