So who is this Soul that you sing of?
This silent witness
Who counts the leaves off of trees
Instead of gathering them?
And raking them into a funerary pile,
Into the giant pile that your better self will set afire and then fall from,
Or jump into.
Up to your eyeballs,
Up to your own personal crown of thorns.

TY. I actually care about the people who read what I write.
I feel a spiritual calling to do what little I can to alleviate other people’s suffering in mental anguish
Even for just the time it takes to read them a poem.
