Black Heaven

My soul I have given freely
Relaying upon threads sewn to my time
My life I’m trying to live honestly
Yet no Heavens belong for me to find

They weave like a sadden web
Stringing every ties known to memory
Hidden tears unknown be wept
Strung with earnest to a sadden melody

Had I remember to be strung?
To be carried beyond a carry in the world
My world yet left me hung
Yet were strings knotted never for twirl

An outer Heaven I come to seek
An inner Hell I’m brought forth to meet
Wounds I did not suffer to bleed
Yet... why do to Heavens I do still plead

And I fall beyond my own
Falling where light fails to shine
Yet... am I to find a home?
When a black heaven is to give its time

    "An outer Heaven I come to seek An inner Hell I’m brought forth to meet Wounds I did not suffer to bleed Yet... why do to Heavens I do still plead" This is a deep stanza and I love it a lot! I found a big struggle in here, and seems like this is the real plea of your lifetime :)
