Heaven & Hell - an early piece

Heaven & Hell

I believe in heaven and hell,
            But like most lovers
My definition probably differs
            From the norm.
They apply not to the “Afterlife”
            But to “After you”.
Heaven is in your arms.
            Hell? It is being across town,
Across the street,
Outside your door.
Even on your patio
When you’re not there.
Hell is finding solace in other’s arms
            When yours are closed.
I must admit my faith
            In fate wavers;
I know there is a God,
            But his knowledge of me at times
Seems as unachievable
As your love.
Leaving me knowing, in this life,
            There is a heaven and hell.
