Shallow Grave



Shallow Grave

Winter's night falls,
absolute darkness
drowning out the light,
swallowing it down
to
the
very

pinpoint

of existence.

The cruel words you uttered
resound in my mind
as I sink
b
e
l
o
w
the damp, freshly-turned earth.

My skin is frozen,
numbed by the cold,
longing for the warmth of your touch.

But you willingly left me
to die here

alone,

entombed in my quiet
despair.

Phantom fingers brush my cheek
with tender concern
as my heart goes to sleep.
Icy cold surrounds my soul
as welcoming blackness
calls me home.

One day,
the sun will shine
again
and bathe my face with rays of bliss.
The sweet summer breeze will softly sigh,
its quiet whisper
once more
coaxing color
into my pallid ivory features.

But,
until then,
in this shallow grave
I wait
for the clouds to disappear,
and for love's gentle thaw
to revive me.



~What is cherished most is what must be the hardest fought for~
