Celestial Dawn

March 27, 2019


My hands break from pounding the wall
I collapse as the floor shatters and I fall
Falling and falling, I cry out in agony
Soon to become one more in the myriad of dead men


The battlefield that surrounds me, engulfs us all in flames
I cling tightly onto my last shred of hope
But it is snatched from me by enemies, the creatures in the dark
I hear them mocking me; invading my thoughts as they convince me

To lay down arms, surrender, and accept my fate; they laugh


I cry out in anguish as I bleed out, my heart cut in half
She appears before me, with a seraphic smile
She takes me in her arms, tends to my wounds with a gentle touch

Captivated by her ethereal beauty, the battlefield dissolves and

The world goes quiet; it is just the two of us


The blissful caress of her hands removes all my worries

Awestruck by her divine face, I beg her to stay
My heart ablaze with longing for her heart, her love
I hear her awesome voice, she tells me of her homeland


Far away, it shines a beacon of hope for all men
She tells me of its vast fields where one can run for all eternity
Of its wildlife, ever so fair and angelic,
She tells me of an eternal banquet, celebrated for the king and queen


Where travelers gather after their long journeys
And embracing one another, they feast and laugh for never-ending days

Softly, with gentleness of a breeze, she says, “Come”
And I follow her, as she takes me to that great city
The Celestial Dawn.
