The Graveyard – wisdom of the sad and depressed


Pestilence in our imagery controls our sight

And everything we sought to have falls short
Of what our fingertips can reach for
With impaired vision and obstructed touch
We yell out loud to rip apart the void
That engulfs our entirety but alas
Our sounds bounce of the thickness of our cage
And we end up victims of our own decree
With bleeding ears, incapable eyes and severed hands
We rest on what we used to call our home
Turned into something of our grave
Appliances and rooms just objects in the yard
And compounding our ordeal we’re left with taste and smell
The taste of misery and smell of a decaying corpse

  1. Wow.. what a declaration! I went to see ‘Bingo’ at the Young Vic in London recently of which this poem is reminiscent. Nice work! ;)
