Voices Of The Dead

~^~ I lay in my bed dreaming fighting with the darkness, Like a serpent the memories come creeping; The voices of the dead are so loud. The past encompasses me like a thick blanket, I am trying so hard to push the pain away; The cemetery gate is opening wide. There is a hush in the rows of tombs and tombs, The voices of the dead are whispering; Finally I cannot resist any longer. I am falling into a dark void and I wander lost, Tossing and turning, murmuring names in my sleep; The tomb is wrapped in fog and vines. Standing before the cold engraved words in stone I fall to my knees weeping and lamenting; In the dark purple cloudless night. ______________________________ August 16, 2013 Verse Entered into the contest, Screwed, sponsor, Rob Carmack, 8th place Submitted to the contest, Any Poem, Any Subject, Anne Currin, N/A
