Twilight on the Graves


At twilight on the graves
As dew settles in the night
Come to me beloved
In my warm candle light

Damp moisture kissed moss
Our breath makes no sound
Our yearning eyes embrace
My true love has been found

I take you in my arms
Fetid smell upon skin
Like faded roses and worms
Flesh parched thin

My sweet undead lover
In a coffin on still breath
Through the tears and emotion
I fear not death.


O lover how I wept
Lost in the night
You came to me
Warmed me in your light
I long for your embrace
To ignite my cadaver heart
Infinitely bond
Smitten by love’s dart
In slumber we exist
Within shadows of the dark
Entombed evermore
Where time leaves no mark.

Entwined like thorns on the rose,
To thrive in bittersweet laughter.
Eternally seared upon headstone,
“I flourish with you in the here-after”
