Voices Of The Dead

~^~ I lay in my bed sleeping and I fight with the darkness, Like a serpent the memories come crawling; The voices of the dead are calling. Memories that encompass me like a thick blanket, I am trying so hard to push them away and not recall; The cemetery is waiting as always and I am so afraid. Of the hush and the rows of tombs and tombs, The voices of the dead are whispering. And finally I cannot hold on any longer and I let go. I am falling into the deep and into a void of oblivion; But tonight, I am able to push the horror away, And I am cozy in my bed with kitty purring. The voices of the dead quiet tonight. ______________________________ August 16, 2013 Free Verse Submitted to the contest, Any Poem, Any Subject, Anne Currin
