Sleep fails the torment Soul
lost on it's journey of unfulfilled dreams
body laying motionless awaiting its turn to forfeit lies
wondering if it too will be reborn
or be feed to the wolves eager for any lost beings
Soul returning back to the body already to late
opportunity didn't knock tonight
and body settles for a cold trip down town
Anger fires the Soul into disrupting the balance
casting an eon of rules aside, it fights to exist
not ready to move on or sit and wait
with dispair it watches as body is removed
and is left alone in this space of time
quietly Soul mourns the loss of body
knowing now it faces eternity alone
not willing to see the fresh start that beckons it
only the loss of a close friend.

Now I have had a couple of hours sleep and reread this it isn't as bad as I first thought. The soul in this piece, has left the departed only to realize it is lonely/lost with out the body. but has missed the slim time frame to re enter. Thus upsetting it and causing great aynst.

You're right. The soul is a particle of body and mind. To remove it is to remove black from white. Good job. Oppertunity is misspelled. ~Opportunity.

It's sad as it is truthful.
