My mind is a graveyard.
Stone angels and

monuments to the dead reside there –
Protecting all that has died there.

My mind is a graveyard.
The heart writes you an obituary,

your name highlighted

your life blacked out –
Forgetting what you once were.

My mind is a graveyard.
Ghosts haunt the ruins inside me,

pacing through destroyed hallways

and burnt-down ballrooms –
Pretending they still stand.

My mind, darling, is a graveyard –

And you are buried there.
