Heaven or Hell ?

My eyes are blind,
my mind is numb,
my soul is down and blue,
there's nouthing left for me to do,
I feel so confused .
My heart is split between two worlds ,
torn straight down through the mid,
the cherubs stopped there holy song,
and flew away and hid .
The mist has come,
in clouds above,
the blanket covers me,
the truth is gone,
this can't be love,
that's come to set me free .
Angels guard the silent route,
upto the glowing gate,
I can't let temptation,
hamper me,
or I'll never reach my fate .
But what is this,
I have a doubt,
growing in my head,
don't make me chose,
which road to take,
or I'll never get it said .

Choosing temptation, only to find that you were wrong is also part of the game!! You've made quite a statement with this one Tom!!!

True words wrapped in such a good poem
I like it very much

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

The worse place to be is being stuck in the middle.
Follow your heart -but in which doesn´t mean without your mind. The mind must be used how to best compliment what the heart desired to be done.
The mind is sort of like a map of how things are in our world today. So if you wish to bring heaven down, you need a map!

                       Happy Valentine´s day
                       on the wings of love

Truly an epic from the heart. An inspiration to us all - we all must make this choice one day, and you have expressed it in the best way.

Hey, what's with putting this back up to the top - the cheek of it.  Not that it doesn't deserve another airing.

 The tragedy of it is that nobody sees the look of desperation on my face. Thousands and thousands of us, and we're passing one another without a look of recognition.
