My Soul

My Soul

When you have gone away, I feel lost
as if you will never come back again
You reassure me
"I'm not going anywhere."
afraid of non-existence
Ashes and bone
The loss and pain that have always been unknown
life lost to the wind
left to live without a smile, a touch,
and the broken parts will not heal
cracks in the pavement
the heart on the inside
peeled apart
the knowledge that nothing remains the same
blue and red molecules I've been told the human eye cannot see
float through the air, adrift
all that is left of the human flesh
The heavens will open
and I pray aloud to a God in which I've rarely spoken
"Please don't take away all that is my soul."
 My soul...
