let me die and go to heaven

and with my gossamer wings i shall dance

in the glorious sun.
or let me die and go to hell

and i shall warm the hands of my Soul

in the scorching flame.

for the real hell

is infinite nothing.
to have a Soul as silent
as the pulseless body it once inhabited.

or worse.
to find that the Soul
along with the god to which

all our prayers were sent to

in little white envelopes

sealed with the tongue of our faith

was as existent

as the imaginary friends

that the childhood versions of ourselves


believed in.

this reminds me of the Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis. A bit confusing but still full of insight and makes you think.

I like it.
