Every time
She closes her eyes...
She finds herself
In paradise.

Blissfully unaware
Of the world around her,
She sees nothing
But what pleases her.

Floating in the magic,
Glistening space that is
Her paradise,
She knows nothing but happiness.

The outside world
Is nothing but a harsh,
Cruel, and unforgiving
Mistress.

But every time
She closes her eyes,
She finds herself
Surrounded by what she loves.

Surrounded by those
Whom she loves dearly,
Still with her in spirit,
Though they not in her arms.

The sound of a cherub choir
Playing off in the distance,
The glistening of stars
Surrounding her figure.

Here is a girl,
Lost in a paradise
Whenever she closes her eyes.

And nothing can take that away from her.
A poem inspired by this picture. [link]

A friend of mine was found dead yesterday, they say she probably committed suicide.
I don't believe in God or heaven, but coming back to this poem, months after i faved it, makes me really believe that she's in a better place now. She is happier where she is now.

Thank you for easing the pain for me and surely many more to come <3

I'm sorry to hear the news, love...
Glad I could offer some solace in a time like this.

On a side note, I don't believe in God or heaven either.

I feel like you're writing about me, cos everytime i close my eyes, i go to my paradise too :meow: Except i do't float. I skip. Through a park near my house. Hand in hand with you.
