Soul Song
by Alex Grehy

These tunnels are my home now
The darkness is my new best friend.
My guitar’s soul is pacified
If we stay underground, alone.
I’m all alone, alone, so alone
I’m all alone, alone, so alone
I’m all alone, alone, so alone
Alone, alone, alone
Shadows sleep here, in the darkness,
My guitar dreams, watchful silence,
Light wakes shadows, soul devourers,
Footsteps echo, like a drumbeat,
Run to refuge, run to darkness.
It started when I was young,
I bought this guitar from a friend,
Who’d died in pain, suicide,
I did not know his soul survived.
His soul plays on, plays on, plays on
His soul plays on, plays on, plays on
His soul plays on, plays on, plays on
plays on, plays on, plays on 
Shadows sleep here, in the darkness,
My guitar dreams, watchful silence,
Light wakes shadows, soul devourers
Footsteps echo, like a drumbeat,
Run to refuge, run to darkness.
Woken by light, his ghost appears,
Don’t touch his shadow, it brings death.
Your life force is within his grasp,
His soul song calls, try to resist.
He wants you, run, run, run away
He needs you, run, run, run away
He craves you, run, run, run away
Run, run, run, run away.
Shadows sleep here, in the darkness,
My guitar dreams, watchful silence,
Light wakes shadows, soul devourers
Footsteps echo, like a drumbeat,
Run to refuge, run to darkness.
Run to refuge
Run to darkness
Run…

    A melancholic, but terrific poem.
