Love Beyond the Pale

You lay upon the warm wet earth
torn from limb to limb.
Your present shape denies the girth
of the form you once had been.

Truncated tendrils mock your birth
about you ivy climbs,
my love for you evokes true mirth
but love does not end with time.

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

Yet, love lingers beyond base veils
and passion’s youthful prime.
I’ll wait for you beyond the pale
and you’ll return to be mine.

    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.
