Come Not Into My Soul - Poem by Frederick Kesner


Come not into my soul,
You are not whom I love!
For even out of that
My heart will surely perish.

When my soul is bursting
As a fiery bolt ablaze,
My heart in fevered embrace!
Through my furious bleeding;
Come not near unto my soul,
You are not whom I love!

Do not you touch my soul,
You are not whom I love!
Worn is the heart with want
Where my bursting bruised it.
Breathe-in not that blue fire,

Do not lean you upon my soul;
You are not whom I love -
Which now with my languor rests,
Lest from out of my bleeding
My fevered heart perish.
