“Heaven doesn’t seem
Far away anymore”
-Rob Pope, “Drop in the Ocean”
So Close To Heaven
I felt like I was
So close to Heaven
You were so close
To saying it
Right after lovin’
But all it took
Was a pause
All it took a few breaths
And everything was lost
You turned your back instead
Started to cry
Said, “He’ll be back soon.”
Put on your bra
And your lies
You acted so distant
You were hiding the truth
Did you no longer want me?
As you had in our youth?
“I’ll put on my clothes.”
I’ll shield my insecurity
I’ll suppress my disappointment
And look for Heaven again
Next week...
