Ripped Through to the Soul

Shadows cast through the eyes 


as pain pierces the heart


a fresh wound as knife

slices  through

skin draws blood

hand reaches in to pull 


rips out part of soul


inner demons fight

to keep the rest in

it belongs to them


numbness draws a smile

upon the face to fake

the battle has not yet 

been lost as there’s 

still hope for light

to mend the heart

and return the soul
