Soul

Soul

A Poem by Anne Korhonen
"

A poem about depression

"
Inside your head
Inside four walls
it's painful to be
Your head full of nothing
Can't live with pleasure any more
The mercy of your heart is zero

Like you didn't have soul any more
Food doesn't tempt the belly, mouth, throat
You aren't dancing any more when playing music
Fashion doesn't bring you joy
The Bible and those books
or pen and paper don't tempt you to contemplate

The synonym of love might be family
now it feels like a mistake worth regret
Soul is screaming for space
The cage is ruining faith life
Sudden judgement is based on the surface
without knowing the person, watching underneath the skin

I would like to hug the man of God
so that the Holy Ghost could return to my soul
I would like to dedicate my time for prayer
because it beautifies the soul
I would like to dedicate myself to charity
and get better as a philanthropist, mother and wife

Soul is demanding new experience
so that life wouldn't turn into dull and black
The intellect is missing some teaching
and the artist is missing inspiration
The chef is missing new mix of spices
The model is missing a better wardrobe

The solution 
is found in passion or lack of it
neither in antidepressants nor beer
for which you might need rehab
to maintain the basis of mental health
so I'm choosing to swallow the negativity

"Soul is demanding new experience

The above lines drew me in deep on a very personal note. My favorite thing about this verse is that it could have been woven with a much heavier dose of metaphor and the like, but it is very raw and that does nothing but amplify the weight of your words.

On a lesser (or, perhaps, grander note), I needed to read something like this today. I appreciate this piece! Solid job, Anne.
