The cemetery

I touched the wrought iron gates and

I said goodbye to parts of me

I threw them a ceremonial ocean burial

but still purchased a headstone

I torched them and told them to thank God on their way through His gates

Thank him for the challenges he set before me

and tell Him that I am not sure how long I will be

He knows of my pitch dark sorrow

as He knows of my unbeatable strength

I cried at the departure of me

where angels visited and kissed my tears away

I wore my trousers through at the knees

praying for but a mere moment of calmness within me

For a hand to hold through the night

and a gentle voice to wake me from the nightmares which plague me

I said one last goodbye

and waved slowly to the corpse of my misery
