Bruised Soul

The Falling Thoughts

My soul was bruised

Before you, yes

I was living but

With the feeling of

Being played and being used

My soul was bruised

My pillow was wet

I forgot about myself

But its hard to forget

The feeling of being used

My soul was bruised

Yes it was bruised

But until

I was blessed with your love

Kissed by your soft lips

I forgot what I had gone through

You have cured my soul

And now if God offered me heaven

Without you, that offer will be refused

Path of Life

Karl's Blog

With a crisp breeze gently caressing my soul, I stroll in the cool morning light relinquishing my thoughts of a sleepless night passing. NatureFeatured image whispers in my ear as the collection of wings flutter and dance in a harmonized fashion with joyful song.

The trail is winding back and forth like the unbridled path of my life. The smell of nectar in the air filling my senses with tasteful pleasure.

The journey is long as my legs repeat step after step the body directs. A lonely loon cries out on the lake a warning to others a stranger aloft. Currents of life fill the air of a once barren space. A rabbit emerges to check me out, and then scampers off to hide from this intruder. Humans gone now, the ravages of war. Alone I am as I look for meaning, will I enter the darkness as did the rest…
