Alas The Door

Updated on April 13, 2011

I travel onto a place of make believe

My mind speaks the language of reliance

Onto the lands where I can achieve

Living along the limits of compliance

 

From a place where nothing was clear

The air polluted with fog and smoke

Photographs taken, visible images smear

Air pipes closed, tightly held to choke

 

A blind fold untied, released with care

Released by an angel’s graceful hand  

That was sent from the heavens air

Hanging onto God’s heavenly strand

 

A sigh of relief with no burdened weight

All was taken from the center of the core

The right path given to reach the golden gate

Knocked once with no hesitation, Alas his door

      bb, I will sure let you know!!

      Nikki, A place of make believe is the land we walk on it is all make believe it is all a show our real place is heaven and heavens grounds. I live in a facade that is temporary holding my existance until the time comes for me to go home. Once i take my very last breath I will be free of all the fake and voids. We are not of this world and I believe that. I may accomplish things in life that may be sureal to me its all a test of faith! I hope this answers the question lol. Sorry went a lil religous but its just my thoughts and opinion thanks sunshine as always. :)

      Nice, you changed up the rhyming scheme. thats good. just one question for you...in the first line you said "I travel onto a place of make believe" and throughout the poem you end up face to face with an angel at heavens doors...does this mean you dont believe in such a place? just wondering.

      It's a wonder to see our Ms. Bella so free...

      I like the part:

      "A sigh of relief with no burdened weight

      All was taken from the center of the core

      The right path given to reach the golden gate..."

      Your angel is my angel..
