No glory in the purgatory

Many of those souls

inhabiting the purgatory

have convinced themselves –

that they are merely in the sauna.


Leave them be –

to languish

in the realms

of the most blissful fantasies.


Some will awake

from the slumber  

too little, too late 

burned bridges; deep incisions 

their defection –


from the protections 

of those who gave 

because it was love –

that guided their steps.


The haughty –

now the scorned

sentenced to wander lost –

in the plains of purgatory

until the flesh

falls from their bones.
