Holes In My Soul - Poem by Ruby Monroe

He calls himself a powerful Man of the Cloth
But to me, he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a true man of Satan!

He smells good
But looks even better
Delivers the Word in such a manner
That a child can
Understand it better

He seemed to have a listening ear to whatever,
But to later use it against me to make the
Holes in My Soul even bigger.

All of his members dance to his every tune.
I hope they find out real soon,
That his own Words are being spoken, and not in truth!

When he touched me like the rapist did,
It took me to a place I thought I had passed.

He tried to use the Holes in My Soul
As a way to fulfill his own lustful ways,
But I refused to be a slave to the rhythm.

In the midst of fighting his mangy Spirit off of me,
I saw visions of the First Lady’s face dance in my head;
Wondering how many times she’d wished him dead.

What would she do?
If she knew this time it was me?
Hurt is all I could see!

Why God why is this happening to me?
Is this only for my eyes to see?
Or maybe....It’s to heal one of the Holes in My Soul!
