A Soul

This is a soul:
Fluid mercury
pulsing and shapeshifting
jagged on the edges like broken glass
A masterpiece
a Van Gogh from God's deft hands
Perfection
Deep like the ocean
Eternal
Instant
Easy to burn
Hard to swallow
With hidden wings and gossamer strings
Sometimes shielded in dark corners
like a cricket waiting to sing
Drink will only dampen its fire
and suffocate its symphony
Light
beautiful light
will say
fly
