Mortis Amora : Why The Garden Blooms

The TV turned on, my darling turned off, Her face so wan, the skin so soft, Cold to touch in a room too warm, And there on the hutch figurines swarm As if awakened by séance, Hands held, circling in a ghastly dance; Every nuance, every stance Living testaments to dying romance. A ceramic finger's breadth Separates me from my beloved Beth, Berating me for the fates Mete out to my belated mates. Yet no matter how much blood is spilt I soundly sleep sans any guilt, Living my life to the hilt In a house that morbid love has built. To have and hold means many things Having naught to do with wedding rings Or vows of fidelity fondly said, Gazing in the eyes of the newly dead. Upon pillows the bands were borne To the hands they were meant to adorn; Hands adored and hands that mourn Their annualries so lovingly shorn. Strung on strings about their necks, Valued more than life insurance checks, Memorials of trust won and love lost, What else remains is now compost For gardens that strike neighbors dumb In pure envy of my green thumb And the foliage that numbs The pain of my brides ere they succumb. Wedded if only in my mind, With nary a marriage license signed I walk the path from the door To the garden where digging is no chore, But a joy that hides the dear deceased From neighborly eyes and police And the only thing bringing peace To Elizabeth, Elise, and Clarice.
