Just Don't Take My Soul!


You have taken so much from me!

Too much!

My will, my strength, my reasons.

You reach in with delft fingers,

twisting and snatching away

any part you wish.

Without conscious thought,

you enter, uninvited,


into every corner of my being.

You steal away hopes,

dreams, memories.

You take years from my span,

shortening my numbered days.

I have not the power to end your reign.

I have no control over what you do,

what you take.


you have taken so very much already.

But please...

just don't take my soul.
