Here In The Cemetery, Here In The Darkened Graves- A Poem


Here In the Cemetery, Here In The Darkened Graves

Beyond the shadowed trees,

Far beyond the cool fall breeze

Deep within the tombstones

Are secrets to be shown.

Reach before the graves

Are spirits stuck as slaves,

Screaming loud and out

The deepest loudest of shouts.

Old stories of histories and lore

Lay there on the land before

Dates from early to late

All end with the same o' fate.

Shivers down my spine

Of ancients in time

Chill me to the bone

Here in this cemetery I am not alone.

I want to run but to leave seems wrong

When they've been here for so long

Fear over takes me

Here in this cemetery.

They follow me out, grip my soul

Never wanting to let go

They want to stay

Never to go away

And a part of me does.

And a part of me does remain yet another slave

To these darkened graves

Here in these darkened graves.
