Ascension

Far beyond imaginations edge, I hear a voice that speaks my name. Moving to approach the ledge - My hands are bound; my feet the same. Crumpled in a heaving heap, I worm my way up to the brink. And just about to take the leap, I pause to let my matter think. There sounds a clap; I've made a move; Yet body stays on ground. I see me as I'm floating through Space and time and sound. What once was chaos now is calm; Emotions cease to be. What once was bound with jagged rope, Is now completely free. I close my eyes and take deep breath; Listen with intent. There are no sounds or feelings now; Only silence and regret. Regret is brief then disappears, My bones no longer ache. Although I miss what went before, I'm so at peace with fate. This is where I'm meant to be- I've known it all along. My vision is so clear now, My 'heart' beats rich and strong. I know that I'm in heaven here, I feel it more than see, It flows through pores, envelopes limbs, But looks like Earth to me.
