Standing at the Gates of Heaven

Standing at the Gates of Heaven

Standing at the gates of Heaven
I look between the bars
Such a paradise just beyond
Kept out of my reach
I am only allowed to watch
Gargoyles block my way
Holding me back
They rip at my cloaks
Tearing them to shreds
Black angels sing my praises
Wrapping leather wings around me
Holding my breaths deep in my chest
They tear at my heart
Pulling my arteries from my chest
Drawing my blood onto the floor
They laugh at my unending pain
Enjoying the torture they inflict
I am drawn away to a hell of my own making
Watching eternity from a molten rock
From now until the end of days
Snakes and demons will be my only friends
Only existing in my private hell
