Inside Heaven's Door

Inside Heaven's Door

A Chapter by Ana Papaya



heavy, these tears
that pool in my eyes
each pupil as though a dark moon
black are the clouds
that hold back the rain

the storm will come 'round again

gone is the hope
that kept you alive
in Spring's cold earth
broken, this heart
that aches for you still
taken too soon after birth

time is the measure
that moves me along
each day brings a little bit more
longing to meet you on the other side
where you wait
from inside heaven's door.

A sad journey in the words. I wanted to know more. You described hard places leading to a hopeful ending. All of us hope to meet the people missed. Thank you dear poet for sharing the amazing poetry.

It's raw and real and so beautiful....
It made me feel. And for me, that's the point of poetry. You're awesome for sharing this through your pain.

A contradiction perhaps? :)

Kidding aside, there's nothing worse for a woman. It haunts her all her days wondering what could have been.

Compelling poetry Ana.

Death is always difficult, but the loss of a child has got to be the hardest.

oh Ana, such anguish and heart break in these words... each letter, each space and punctuation mark, filled with tons of tears and dripping on the page... you make us feel this with you and in doing so allow us to be in tune with and caring about this loss... we humans do not always know the words to share the feelings we have... "sorry" just never seems enough somehow...

this must have been a difficult poem to write
Ana.. but I am glad you were able to..

heart filled words of loss and pain, that would bring a tear to a glass eye. I can't begin to understand the thoughts, feelings and pain that painted these words, but your love and loss shine through in this, most beautiful tribute. (x)

Has such a sadness and longing attached, as usual beautifully written. I too am s**t at reviewing but to not comment is nothing but rude.
