Dark Soul
Author: Luke Christopher


Dark Soul

I have been wounded.
More deeply than you can ever understand.

I spiral down in to nowhere.
There will be no one down there to catch me.

Life overwhelms me,
Even as life comes through me.

Loneliness, Emptiness, hopelessness,
Words that have replaced, togetherness, wholeness, happiness.

Didnít the days used to be brighter?
The sun, warmer?

I look in the mirror.
The eyes that look back at me, hate me.

They are dark, foreboding.
Like storm clouds.

I wish that storm would come.
Consume me. Sweep me away.

When it breaks, will there be sun?
Will I feel the warmth on my face again?

Am I able to feel again,
Or has all hope in me died?

I look at these eyes, and I see the end of my life.
Is it still possible that someone else can look in them, and see the beginning of theirs?
