From here to eternity

“From Here to Eternity” For three days she fought the acrid taste of despair, roamed upon the treacherous slopes of a dark lair. She could smell the burning of their flesh still raw red Could hear their cries of stagnant regret The screams of their condemnation The desolation of their resignation. They matched her quelms but they couldn't know For in these realms they only know their own. But when they looked into her eyes, they knew, they saw the light coming from inside her agonized soul, Her tears, the salt that healed the wounds of their terrible plight. Oh! They wanted to stay, follow her wherever whatever the danger they'd have to face, but it wasn't the right time her smile, from a heart that knew what was right. They could only bow their profound wonderment as they saw the new road that opened to them, atonement. Then she felt Him, her Lord, and husband looking down from the hill in the distance. She wiped her tears, was dressed like a bride and all who were near could hear the choir of angels sing songs of cheers. Carried upon the wings of Pegassus so gracefully she was placed upon the steps to the entry of the Peace Palace. By CarolineCecile © 09.18.12

    Hello again. I remember you from the old defunct blue site. You have not lost your touch with writing poems. This is very descriptive and a pleasure to read.
