Annihilation

disciples who have seen death
reformed in the same life
to see the light
is to be born again

thunder
flash of heaven
rain
touch of heaven

Bright eyes dipped in milk
Hands folded to the heavens
Marked by the sun
Salvation in the light

their dreams now white
as virgin snow
an orchestra of blazing fires
and screams of agony

thunder
flash of hell
rain
touch of hell

destinies turned to glass
shattering when grasped
leaving
shadows on the wall

walking in eternal light
by heaven's direction
carrying paper children
waiting in the dark
