Elfje: Then and Now

Then
I was
a soul, desperately
seeking a body to
inhabit

Now
I am
a shell mourning
its emptiness; my lost
soul



Playing with the Elfje form (11 words spread over 5 lines in a 1-2-3-4-1 pattern) after quite a long time.

Also, 100th post!!! 

This elfje has also been put up at Simply Elfje
