The Place Between

The Place Between

The waiting room bathed in perpetual twilight,
the space where links are forever forged,
divinity’s classroom.

The timeless place where eternity sleeps
and infinity frolics, the place between lives
where heaven and hell constantly change places,
like manic infants deciding which animal they’d most like to be.

Its afterglow lingers in a newborn’s tightly shut eyes,
its echoes resonate in its first cries.
