I’m slowly getting back to blogging after an awesome weekend at the Tamassa hotel, and I’m soon getting back to visiting your blogs. 🙂
Meanwhile, here’s a poem of mine that I wrote not too long ago, which basically on the idea that perfection doesn’t exist, not even in Heaven.
A Two-Faced Heaven
The doors to Heaven open to a white light
Blinding; angels of perfection
Pouring a liquor of bliss and bright
Pride into our hearts and soul.
Some great expectation
And excellence is believed to be in our control.
We perceive nothing but love,
When in fact exist trespasses.
The veil slips,
Chases off the dove.
Life in Heaven has merely faced an eclipse.
Angels are deadly,
As dangerous as the fires of Hell,
As precious as words of secrecy.
Once discovered, happiness is lost.
All is said to be ephemeral;
Light vanished, turning into frost.
The doors to Heaven are locked.
We’re trapped and can do nothing.
Really? Hope has only been frocked.
Behind the clouds surely lies a way
Back to Earth, as there is no such thing
As Heaven, unless unknown and miles away.
Nothing and no one should be judged by their appearance. We may never know what lies behind these walls/clothes…
Indeed, nothing and no one is perfect.
An Evil Nymph.

As always amazing writing… though….my thoughts are the poem reminds me not of heaven but outside the doors of it. 😉
Thank you! Well everyone will have his own interpretations anyway 🙂 It’s a poem open to all!
Very well written… 🙂
Perfectionism is in my eyes a subjective view
– the ideal can never be objectively, all covers have a back cover… 🙂
Nice way of seeing it! Thanks for sharing your thoughts as always 🙂
Beautiful writing! So true, so true : )
I hope you don’t mind if I reblog your link on my reblog page?
Thanks a lot!
No of course not, I don’t mind 🙂
I took delight in this little poem of yours. My take-away: Unrealistic expectations can be a hellish trap!
Thanks! I’m glad you did 🙂 Your interpretation is so true!
So beautiful! Good job swan!

You’re welcome 🙂
Great poetry. Had me at the edge of my seat. Reminds me of the series Supernatural where some of the angels are crazy deadly. Hmm, what if heaven is like that? Crazy and scary right?
Thank you! Oh hehe that’s great. That’s the real Heaven 😉 The word has been misjudged all this time lol!
Rather excellent. I especially adore how it leaves them wishing to return to their known imperfection, Earth, rather than continuing to wish for their ideal heaven that they were denied. Also, anything with not exactly ‘nice’ angels in it is always a plus in my book.
Thank you! Hehe I like contradictory stuff like ‘evil’ angels and all 🙂
Excellent… Perfection doesn’t exist nor is it required for a spiritual or contented life. 🙂
Thank you 🙂 Indeed!
In this world, perfection is an illusion. Regardless of all those who utter the contrary, this is the reality. Obviously mediocre fools will forever lust for perfection and seek it out. However, what meaning is there in perfection? None. Not a bit. …After perfection there exists nothing higher. Not even room for creation which means there is no room for wisdom or talent either. To me, perfection is despair…
True! That’s a good point. Thanks for sharing.
