Flaming Sword

I would draw my flaming sword
and battle your angelic guards
to force my way

I would slice and slash
the downy feathers
just to see the prize within.

But once inside
I shudder and sigh.
For blood and violence
Can never draw
the flowing waters.

The prize without
the prize it was:
the hope of paradise within.
