SOUL DRUG

The true meaning of words cut deep into the soul

But unlike the body, the pain of the soul is difficult to heal

The best doctors cannot cure the soul because the best pharmacists cannot make soul drugs

Even the wisest men know that much

But why do we hurt the soul more than the body?

The hurts those who claim to love us make us feel is tantamount to a cut deep into the flesh

It hurts, it bleeds and no amount of analgesic can curb that immense pain

Funny how a flesh pain has no impact on the soul but a soul pain cuts deep into the flesh

Come to think of it, the only ones who hurt us are the ones we love

Such an irony of life right?

How can two words mean the exact opposite but come about as a result of each other?

How can they even be used in the same context when they are no where alike?

We love to hate each other and we hate to love one another

Correct me if I’m wrong but whenever you are hurt to the soul it is by the people you love

We promise not to hurt those we love but we do hurt them on countless occasions

 Such a pity that we keep repeating the same empty promises generations before us could not fulfill

Soulless souls built on endless loss

That is what is left of us when our souls are cut too deep to be healed 

But through all the pain, hurt and broken dreams, time in its time heals all wounds

Because time itself is a self acclaimed soul drug
