You did not step on any toes, Andrew. Far from it, I found your analysis of the poem very enlightening and broader in scope than even I had when I penned it today. In my case, when I am trying to come up with something interesting, unsettling or even profound I find myself focusing one one particular thing, and so it was with this poem. The gist of this was, again secrets, and in this case the unfortunate fellow was taken to the edge of somewhere and assumed he was dead, and while he assumed that he decided to think of looking around for the elusive God of our desires and hopes. Of course he did find "something," that to him was the answer to the mysteries of death, but alas and drat, he was/is unable to spread that message. Your thoughts on purgatory is interesting and I like it, as I like the idea that he has been sent back to earth to be "saved," although in my way of thinking that sounds a bit unusual. I don't recall God giving us a second chance after death to accept His way. Thank you for your indepth comments.
