St Paul Cemetery

Written by: Yoni Dvorkis

obsessive morbid shadows
preying on the night
call upon the angels’ grace 
fill their hearts with light

they only wish to rest now
shadows of the past
nestled safely underground
comforted at last

of course they felt abandoned
fear was all they knew
ghosts held hostage within their bodies 
wholeness split in two

their softened earth is sacred
in death lies their release
six feet deep two feet wide
may they rest in peace
