Tie My Hands

If I'd fingers long enough
or an extendable arm
far past a bones measure
I'd pull heaven down to me

...and weep
at what it became

so is heaven what we make it?
subject to what we thought it?
maybe we throw the heaven label on too many things that can't measure up

Hell no. Heaven is nothing we can make it. And you're right. Heaven is a location, not an adjective. We use it poetically, like we do heart, and soul.
