Heaven and Hell...


My heart was sprawled on the floor,
Where all the memories that i once treasured laid in my heart,
After the terrible fight between the dark and the light,
His eyes glowed that evil red,
He toke it all away with just a snap of his fingers.

I tried to breathe but it hurt,
as if I was stabbed to death,
He took the people i once cared and loved in to his home and changed there ways,
except for the one of many I hold dear to my heart.

I tried to beg for mercy and ask for the light of god,
But I was stuck in the demons home,
Where fire and ash stayed,
The heat was unbearable,
You could say that i was in hell it self but i was not there,

I tried to save them all,
But they wouldn't listen,
They sent themselves to the lake of fire where they would suffer,
I wish i could stop it but i couldn't, i was only one person.

That moment the light i wished for took a hold of me,
Took me back home where i was safe and warm in the holy place of god.

    If I let Jesus into my heart, won't I die? It seems physically impossible. Not a fan of letting some guy into my body. Maybe the other way around though. Good write though. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
