A Blinding Flash

A Blinding Flash


I want to die in a blinding flash

catapulted into the blue yonder

Where many have already gone and wander

I do not want to linger here in pain

as I have already had too much of the same

I have had enough of this hopeless confusion

and firmly believe it is all a mere illusion

Take me here and now for I am ready to depart

this cry comes from a yearning heart

If nought should be after this mortal coil

then so be it as I am through with toil

Yet if the scriptures be true and real

I shall play my harp as the church bells peel

A very honest and beautiful piece of verse, Keith. I find it sad but fully respect your wishes.

A very evocative poem, Keith, it manages to convey a complex sense of empowered despair! ?

Thanks. I think we have glimpses of heaven and hell here on earth. Perhaps this foretaste is to remind us of our behaviour as an indication as to where we might end up.

I'm mindful of the saying "Be careful what you wish for".
That said, I have to wish you well.
But is hell heaven - and heaven hell? ?!
