Heavens Gate pt 1

Posted to Poetry




One sun spiraling afternoon I decided to run away
I'd had enough of life as I knew it
Not knowing where I was going,but I knew I was going

I saw a homeless man on the corner mumbling to himself
at first I couldn't understand him,but the words became clearer,as I
drew nearer

"When I was young I knew Paradise,but lost it,
Heavens Gate!!"
over and over he said these words like a mantra

I had never heard of this place,but it sounded like a dream.
So I headed south,to find what I could find
