Heaven and/or Hell

That moment that occurs
Between conscious and unconscious~
Between sleep and wake~
Between dream and reality
Is either heaven or hell
Depending on what
Lies behind your
Wall of solitude.

No one can travel with you~
You are completely alone
With your mind~thought~
Past~fantasy~religion~self.
Twist and turn~try to get
Out~heaven and/or hell
Awaits as your mind
Takes over~involuntary
Brain matter of your
Lighter or Darker side
(Or both at the same time),
And the truth it tells in
Muted tunes and images
As well.

About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.

    heaven or hell,
    both dwell within
    making forever wars,
    fierce and furious wars,
    until with one piercing arrow
    we break through
    the dichotomy
    of duality

    ~Drew, thank you for an inspiring and thought-provoking post.
