Forgotten Little Souls
Author: Scorpio


Shadows with no faces
Graves with no names
Skies with no stars
Mist with no claims

Lips with no tongue
Ears with no sound
Eyes with no sight
Balance with no ground

Sewing magic threads
Of forgotten memories
All to make a pattern
To fade in the breeze

Little forgotten souls
Blown away with the wind
Little forgotten souls
Dwindled of the corpse they skinned

------- Author's Notes -------

This is just a little poem I made in my spare time during one of my classes to go along with a sketch I drew late in the night. I didn't think it held much of a meaning, but apparently, it held a lot more feeling to me than expected.

Scorpio first let me tell you what i see

First let me tell you what I do see I may be wrong...but what I am getting out of it is that it is aborted babies...without souls( in which I think they still have souls...I feel god takes care of these aborted babies)without eyes...without tongues...that's what I see in part of it...but then some of it...i can't understand...maybe i'm wrong...let me know...I am sorry...but i really like to understand what i read and if i don't then I have to ask or it will drive me crazy...

This poem is indirectly responsible merely just to strike what the reader may find in their imagination when reading it. Never be sorry, opinions are always right to those who say them. The way I expressed this poem was more or less to express my inner emotions through metaphor. As though sometimes, it feels as if I have no tongue to speak or no soul to feel - It's quite a depressing thing to me, actually. But it's mainly what -you- see inside the poem that matters to you. (: Thanks for your comment.

your welcome & thanks Scorpio

thanks for explaining...and i'm with you..I do understand what your saying about not having a toungue to speak or a soul to fill...sometimes I wish I didn't have a heart to ache for explaining..
