Creative Writing: I Who Have Arrived In Heaven

I who have arrived in Heaven see myself
folded a billion times over before
points of light like the innumerable above suspended
within a limitless room, and with them my mind in lines
tries to find truth in imagined horizons, though there are
none firm up or down.

To turn perspective I am absent
as if there are no walls: this is not a room, finite
concept, but a collection of irrevocable distances,
extant horizons that cannot exist
outside of eyes too dim-definite to confine.

I am sure to logic there are systems
delineating this very heaven, even now as we
suspend between bounds, but to truth I am lost
in beauty unbound, divinity undivided,
the silent between sound.

I am a cypher among stars.

    Is this author 14 years old with absolutely zero knowledge on music? Has to be. Two out of three songs are irrelevant. Both by shitty bands. Who paid for this?…

    Should we mourn GCSE poetry?
    Wonderful article! Very insightful and brilliantly communicated. I wasn't aware of this issue before, but this article has really brought it to light for me. Thank you very much!
