I awaited the

Descent of Seraphim to

Protect me. Instead,

I got the shit kicked

Out of me. Later, when I’d

Healed, I resolved that

I would become that

Angel for others who was

Never there for me.

Jacob’s Ladder

“The only thing that burns in hell is the part of you that won’t let go of your life: your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away, but they’re not punishing you, they’re freeing your soul. If you’re frightened of dying and you’re holding on, you’ll see devils tearing your life away. If you’ve made your peace, then the devils are really angels freeing you from the earth.”

Jacob’s Ladder, Meister Eckhart.
