Paradise Lost: Trapped and Seeking Solace, A Journey Begins

By One Comment1 min read

Paradise Lost

like a branded sword
the fire descended
and gathered ground fast
at the residents’ heels.

fierce as a comet
before them blazed
with torrid heat and vapor –

the Angels caught
lingering families
and led them
from subjected Plains

but some got trapped,

reports of missing
the lucky ones look back
beholding Paradise
but waving.

some draped tears
but wiped them soon;
the world is before them
but where to choose?

hand in hand
with wandering steps
and slow, off they go
their solitary way.
