Soul Search

I faced him, standing there

ten paces straight ahead

as my eyes glanced up to meet his

I heard the voices in my head

and they all tried to be heard

as they spoke at once

to tell me I would be dead

before the day was through

I couldn’t help but notice

the panic as it welled up

and cut off my breath

the voices screamed and clamored

inside my brain for action

and my feet began to move

and I gave it all I had

as I threw my arms into the air

seeking all the electrical

waves throughout the sky

a last taste of life

and in a flash he was there

not half a pace before me

I kept one hand on the sky

as I gently placed a palm

against his unshaven cheek

standing up on tiptoes

I leaned into his heat

our gazes met

as his lips descended to mine

The voices fell silent

and inside spread like a blanket

willingness and certainty

to belong in his hell

sting myself with misery.

So, I greedily drank of his poison,

while his arms settled tightly around me

and I passed from light to dark

where I would spend eternity.

The torture of my heart being ripped

from my breast night after night

as he searches for my soul.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
