A divine soul...

I borrowed from the heavens
clutched it close to my bosom,
sustained only by its love.

Barely could I hold its gaze,
breathless and awestruck
its effects linger presently.

The heavens reclaimed it
wrestled it from my arms
and placed it back where it belonged.

Far above me...
I had no right...
-only loss remains.
