Beyond The Cemetery Gates

Posted to Action Poetry

A stalking road
Just past gates of stories untold
Binding today with yesterday
The pattern of life unfolds

Wishes that went unfulfilled
Questions that left unanswered
Crimes of passion, sickness, disaster
All those sweet dreams being shattered

Irises floodgating a batting blanket
Tell how deceased marked our lives
Buried beneath the surface
Victims hold proof of their strife

Lies in the underworld
Rumbling of jeweled fingers and watches
Treasure trove of lingering devotion
Hidden amongst landscapes, heroes, and boxes

Once extended hands touched our hearts
Become dust within marble and clay
Passengers ride in the line of fire
Secrets floating into the bay
