Goodbye Soul

Can a bed contain two bodies,
but not a single soul?
Skin encases the hollowed chests
where once two hearts were whole.

The lightest touch and swiftest brush
prodded, pricked, and poked-
punctured that which beat within.
But now it's forever dulled.

Souls seeped out the opened slits.
Then left behind was nothingness.
Once the heart was deemed unfit,
the soul slips past the groping fists.

How can I possibly stay
when I, here, emotionless lay.
