Limbo

by Tony   Jun 8, 2017


I have made a Revelation
Found the Place that I'm stuck in
I am not trapped in Hell
For I have commited no Sin

This Place is surely not Heaven
No Angels exist Here
No music can be heard
But at the same time there's no Fear

This isn't Purgatory
For I am not being Cleansed
I have long studdied religion
But to its words I am no friend

It is Limbo where I stand
Trapped in its grey mists
Unbaptized newborns cry
With souls who didn't make the List

We cannot move toward The Gates
Of Heaven or of Hell
Trapped between polarities
A cursed and unfair spell

My Heaven runs away from me
With every step I take
And I'm ejected from the Pit
Everytime I dive into the Lake

I'm neither Fallen Angel
Nor Demon, Devil, or Fiend
I'm just a Lost Soul
Trapped floating Inbetween

Numb to pain
Ignoring pleasure
Insignificant
By any measure

Here I will await
Redemption in Her brown eyes
Awaiting her Siren's Song
To lift my Soul up to the Sky

    Tony,

    For many of us, life on earth can be just as trying as anything purgatory or hell has to offer - be them real or not.

    All the best,

    Ben

    Oh, no, why so sad Tony? This was a terrific write, but with so much gloom. Ah, so much pain.

    I agree with Alec. Although dark and sad, this really is an excellent write. Remember what you told me. Hang in there, hon, and so much love and peace to you <3
