Grave

The abandoned graveyard stands empty
Grass yellowed and overgrown with time
Hedges left in disarray
Headstones crumbled to pebble
Memory left to rot

Silent statues guard the gates
To this forgotten city of dead
Ghosts moan and cry on the wind
Weeping for all they have lost
Night creatures take up their calls

Stone eyes see all who enter
Decrepit fences keep out none
Trailing vines snag intruding feet
Moss covers watching demons
Caution goes to all who enter here

Blackened petals over forgotten graves
Stems of dead flowers over dead memories
The scent of copper-fear and wild flowers perfumes the air
Neglects chokes this place like iron hands
As the Angel of Death patrols these empty paths
