Today my soul died
trapped until strangulated behind
my eyes
tired of watching
what God seems to ignore -

Today my soul died
barred behind my ribs
starved so close to my heart
sick of feeling this hate
spilled down like blood -

Today my soul died
splattered like tears on salt
blocks licked by cobalt green flies
trapped inside my gullet
taking away my appetite -

Tomorrow I wake again
and try to find what soul I can.
