My Soul’s Gone Missing- A Poem

Natalie A. Sanchez, Contributor


Help me

Everyone blames me

Trust me, I had to do it

My soul ain’t with me.

My soul’s gone missing.

Don’t be afraid.

It wasn’t me, it wasn’t me.

Why are you running away from me!?

Blood and entrails all around.

Tried to scream but was no sound.

It wasn’t me, it wasn’t me

Why are you blaming me?

Don’t take me in, it was him.

All  I did was let him in.

Get away. Get away. Get away!

Nobody is listening.

I said I don’t want to play.

Mama, I’m sorry, he won’t get away.

It’s time for me to leave today.
