What did he do to my soul? By Claire 

I remember what he did to my body,

I am learning what he did to my head.

But what did he do to my soul?

My body can heal,

My head can learn

But instead of a soul, I ve got a gaping hole.

An emptiness, a void, a bottomless pit.

A wound, an opening, forever split.

I can live in my head,

My body I hide,

but am I forever to be dead inside?

Is my essence my soul? I struggle to see

That part of my being that would have made me me.

So how do I live?

Just as a shell?

Is this what they mean

When they talk about hell?
