poetry

disappearing within the scriptures, of a lost soul

disappearing beyond these lines
unreachable by what you call divine
for what once made me feel alive
lies forever stained upon my soul
scriptures of lectures
i don’t need to read
because i memorized
every goddamn syllable
as it slipped through the lips
and i was stuck between the hips
speaking within tongues
for the lost soul
i was trying to find
-Joshua Ryan Stewart
