Cadaver of the soul

Cadaver of the soul

Looking into
your eyes
Is like staring
Into a window 
where a homicide
has occurred

There is no
Life
No
Sympathy
no
Hope
Or any type
Of emotion
Just a cold
Mannequin 
where a
Spirit
Used to 
Lie

I guess
You could
Blame
It on circumstances 
with hard 
Times
Pointing
Your
Way
However
Divorcing
Yourself
From
Empathy
And compassion
Were the
True
Culprits
that numbed
you from
Having
Any connection
To
Humanity 

Thus

Leaving
you
Excommunicated 
From
LOVE
and
Embezzling 
You.
Of the 
Destiny
It
Brings..

HI Greg....Unfortunately I am seeing more and more people like this...where compassion and empathy have left and what is left is an alien representative of what looks like a human...but the humanity part has left....and it makes me sad...It also makes me feel so lost in this world...I don't want to relate to this kind of mentality....It causes me such hurt in life...I refuse to be a part of what I see the course of this system is headed....I feel that struggle in your write...Great message of awareness.  xo ;)

this is a work of brilliance greg, which in truth echoes the many fears
of my heart.
