    dotsOrchestras In Heavendots

    Are there microphones in Heaven?
    I can't hear you today.
    Amplify the promises;
    send them on their way
    to where you left your heart.
    It rains down here all day.
    Without you singing back to me,
    the sunlight turns to gray.

    Are there radios in Heaven;
    speakers in the stars?
    Maybe if I scream again,
    this space won't seem as far.
    But how can voices stretch
    years to where you are?
    Even if I practice more,
    you won't hear this guitar.

    Are there orchestras in Heaven?
    'Cause I can't hear them play.
    "Open up your heart and then
    you'll feel them there
    ," they say.
    Well, maybe mine is closed,
    sewn, stapled to portray
    the promises of Heaven that
    seem too far away.

      This is probably one of the best poems I've ever read. It's flawless and it flows so well. I like the thought process of it all, and the images you put into it...I really have no criticism for this.

    I hope there are orchestras in heaven.

      This one almost made me cry - lol - as odd as that sounds, because in many ways it wasn't as dark and sad as some of your other stuff, but still... it was very touching, and held just enough longing to really make you feel it, and to play with the reader's emotions. Often times I know I feel that Heaven's Promises are way, way too far away, but then sometimes you look around and realise that perhaps, they are not as far away as we first think.

    I really enjoyed this, a lot. I may have to share this one with a few friends - I think they'd appreciate this one :)

      You can't see it, but I'm holding a lit lighter to screen. Yeah, just yeah. It's like afi meets Led Zepplin. This was so immensly beautiful And not so much in that dark, sinister, what the [censored] is wrong with me(the reader) for liking this kinda way either. No this is. Whoa, you ARE my fav. poet period of all time! I'm not even playing. Poe would look up to you with admiration, and if he didn't I'd knock his ass to his knees so he'd have to! I don't know what else to say, you're like an earthbound angel with a tatoo of [censored] heaven on her arm! Ah, it seems so beautiful!

      Lovely, lovely. I love it! haha, Really... I enjoyed the entire thing. And wow, you have a lot of posts I will definitely have to check out. I found the comparing music and heaven great. I mean, I guess it's not completely original, the idea of music being heavenly, but you made it so it was original; I've definitely not read anything quite like it. So great! It's a favorite.

    Peace, LucyDiamond

      This was amazing! I can't even begin to describe the emotion that I'm feeling from reading this piece. It's not too often that words completely escape me, but you have succeeded with this one, so I'll just fave it and get my point across that way! I loved it! It's been awhile since I've checked out your writing and I am very glad that I decided to today.

      Heaven has a lovely orchestra,
    with woodwinds, brass, and strings;
    and the songs are heard by those who pray,
    their words, each angel sings.

    Here on Earth the broken instruments,
    long to join this wondrous band,
    but they cannot play unless repaired
    and tuned by God's right hand.

    Each must follow the Conductor,
    Only One knows every score,
    He has written through eternity,
    Where He leads through Heaven's door.

    So, don't fear if you can't hear it, yet
    With your faith, you'll learn to play.
    God alone made you His instrument
    And He longs to hear you play.
