Touched by a brilliant shine,
encapsulated by something truly divine.
Given pleasure from grace,
unfurled into excruciating light.
Pursuit of ecstasy is an infinite chase,
from the hands of angels to smite.
A throne of divinity to capture,
crowned by the bittersweet rapture.
Heaven opens its gates,
trumpets roar in honor of all that is sacred.
A divine catastrophe encapsulates,
the long-sought reward of faith consecrated.
Asphyxiated by apocalyptic light,
allowing our crooked souls to take a reluctant flight.
