Shadow Heart

My soul is black, you can't see me.
You can't see my red heart, it glows bright like the sun.

Restraining me.

Restraining me.

The chains wrap around my red heart, blood drips down.
Until my heart shines no more, nothing but my black soul is left.

Kinda morbid, but I like it. I like how you put a bunch of spaces after the first stanza. I like how it shows that people don't see what people are like inside, just what they appear to be.

lovely. the part about the heart glowing like the sun but nobody seeing it is a teensy bit redundant, but who cares about minor details, overall the picture you painted in my head is one that isn't going to fade away anytime soon! loved it xoxo

A soul may seem black but on the inside is more beautiful than the world itself. Good poem Ghost
