A Perfect Soul


Anger, confusion, hate

The war of emotions that threaten,

threaten to overwhelm me,

threaten to drown me


And to think,

these feelings are driven by love,

the love for one soul,

a soul so perfect in life,

a perfection that continued in death


He was born with a heart of fire

and a spirit as pure as the driven snow,

he was neither hateful nor vengeful,

nor was he driven by greed,

Instead he loved to live and he lived to love, 

he was my best friend, my rock,

my island in an ocean full of hate,

and now he is, forever gone,

but in my heart,

his perfect soul will live,

Forever, on and on and on
