The Soul

The soul, a lopsided
cathedral dressed in
flesh  wanting.
A glass house stained
purple, by emotions,

Untamed, unsatisfied.
the soul confides
in her sister, the heart,

of hopes
that echo hymns

like light flowing through
her favored cracks.

  1. An interesting use of the metaphor.. I think though that soul has no siblings as his/her journey is uncharted ~
