In The Graveyard

In The Graveyard

Silence is the sound in the graveyard,
Singing and chanting demonic hymns.
Darkness will consume the earth soon,
A lunar eclipse will block out the moon.

Craving blood from the innocent dead,
Never will the wretched sinners be free.
Homicidal and suicidal we will blame,
The act of taking a life is all the same.

Here in the graveyard bodies lay to rest,
Richer than gold mines and oil derricks.
Dreams and ideas buried six feet under,
What could have been? we now wonder.

Past, present and future come together,
Celebrating a common theme of death.
Robbed of their lives heroes were slain,
Their stories written are all that remain.

Only in the graveyard can peace be kept,
Everyone is equal under Mother Earth.
Caught in a vicious circle of life and death,
It all ending tragically with one last breath.

An end to all ends when life is no more,
Everything reverses to become nothing.
Forgotten dead these fences shall guard.
Buried for eternity here in the graveyard.

    Superb poem, imagery is excellent and you painted incredible picture with emotions. Some lines are simply amazing, very original too. I like your wording and you wrote it greatly. Well done, you should be proud on this piece, some of your thoughts that you described in this poem are depressive but anyway that just add more effect. Well done, you really deserves 5/5 on this one.

    It all ending tragically with one last breath.

    I personally think you should have used 'ends' instead of 'ending'. But that's me.

    Otherwise, I'll admit, while written beautifully I was a bit confused on where exactly you were giong. And at the end it didn't justify so I'm still a little lost. But nonetheless it was still an amazing poem; I really enjoyed it. Great job.
