Lost Heaven - Poem by sally sh.

There she stands a homeless bride
Her white dress torn and stained
Watching her wedding from afar
Banished, where she's tortured and blamed

Eternal shadows of the divine
In her light shall forever dwell
Innocence peace purity and love
A heaven on this hell of earth
Now she stands alone... banished
Where angels fear to trod

She calls for you … and for me
To claim the right of love
To the land of our god
Useless…as life has left us
To her love…deaf

Desperate she knocked our door
Her faith never failing yet
Hopeful…not noticing the thorns on the doors
Tearing off her flesh

'' Let love be let love be '' was the last she said
As she mumbled those words only to her
God had said
Before she fell... bleeding... dead
