A Letter From The Soul To The Mind - Poem by Ivy Christou

A day later and I’m still here,
I’m sorry that I didn’t disappear
as you wanted me to,
I’m sorry that I’ll be the reason
for your suffering in the future,
I’m sorry that I can’t leave you alone,
like everyone else.
But you and me are one..

Love: Your Soul

    I like this a lot, Ivy. The mind and the soul are so often in conflict; this is true for me... 'A day later and I'm still here'. Probably not, but this sounds a bit like a suicide survivor, for what is suicide but an attempt to kill both (even more than the body) ? Thank you for this. (Report)Reply

    ah, so true and so well captured! If only the soul cared about the mind; then again, we probably wouldn't have poetry... (Report)Reply

    Ivy, for someone who has only recently started speaking in English you did darn well. I'd hate to try and do a poem in Greek and make it so beautiful.

    WELL DONE

    Hugs
