Love Beyond the Pale

You lay upon the warm wet earth
ripped from limb to limb.
Your present shape denies the girth
of your form in its prime.

Cut short in life denied your worth
about you ivy climbs,
my love for you evokes the hearth
a fire which knows no end time.

Now fallen, slain, cast for rebirth,
the core of you sublime,
an earthly stump, at forest skirt
reminds me of grand times.

Soon, I too will go beyond the earth
recalling passion's prime
through the veil of life unearthed
my heart returned to thine.

    Sir. Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, was fascinated by this particular theme, especially after his beloved wife died, and he turned to researching on the life after death and the ways to communicate with the beloved dead. He altogether stopped writing crime fiction and came up with a classic novel which described the other world beyond the curtain. Like dear Debbie Guzzi points out here in this poem of hers, people love to wait beyond the pale, for their return some day.
