mg15f1cShe was lost in the “in-between” on her way to paradise
Here the blue horizon went on forever between heaven and earth

Here she would feel the same awful longing, dream the same dreams
Awoken by screams fading into silence where no others would hear

Days that went by unchanged with the smell of damp earth and burning candles
All the while voices of the dead kept calling her back to a place no longer

“You’re free now” they whispered for they knew the way was forward
Never looking behind, moving onward…. to the house with no tears
