I Can't Touch My Soul

I Can't Touch My Soul

A Poem by R.E.K.

And it drives me crazy

Sometimes this body feels like a shell, only I'm locked inside it.
Never ending itch inside my real heart, yet here I can't scratch it.
It's a different kind of pain, this feeling.
A sensation that for my sanity I must refrain from feeling.
Please let go, 
It's like a hand holding my throat.
Silent screams escape me, 
Nightmares they awake me, can you let me go?
I close
Color returns to my sight.
Breathing slows like a rope let swing until it hangs
On this world I remain.
Don't feel it.
Block out the pain, the screams that come from inside.
I'll be alright in this world, at least for a time.
Let my mind,
sometimes I am me,
my body I mean
attached to these limbs that confine me
so strange yet so simply aggravating
I can use my body, this host of lines and shifting`
My soul 
a ball of light and emotion,
 confined to my heart
yet sometimes I feel like an explosion happens 
when my mouth can't say
 the words my soul sings
Praise To You Creator
peace of mind
I can't see
all I am 
In the mirror 
staring at a jail cell dark and shameful
Don't understand
I am a child inside
I am a child inside
