This is What Heaven Feels Like

Heaven's soft rain dusts my soul

Tinting my skin a rosy gold

I'm swamped by tears inside this skin

How long to bring outside what's in?

Halfway between the Earth and sky

The taste cools my lips when they are dry

This life tethers me to familiar pain

But all bonds are cut loose when washed in the rain

I'll lay these bones against the sun

Cut the away when the burning's done

I'll give my heart the wings it needs

To free itself from desire's seeds

I'll trade this green for lengths of blue

This cold, packed earth for something new

And when the painted light recedes

It leaves an afterglow of me.

This poem is about: 
Me
