A Sold Soul

A soul sold,
a story untold,
sold to the highest bidder.
dreams that no longer matter.
stillness of the mind and body,
for which they can't move.
trapped in elegance which is not them.
dying eyes,
the heart stopped beating.
a soul sold, is glory never to unfold.
no more pureness,
no more gold.
a story,
of a soul that was sold.
