Laid to Rest

September 2nd, 2008 No comments

My sweet:
All matters have been
Deliberately entombed
and it's a sealed deal.
We must not raise the dead.
Not like any of our best conjuring
could do the trick.
My heart,
if we buried a catatonic comatose
than a legitimate corpse
it'll awaken to a silken bed
and a comfortable pillow.
Quickly suffocated into eternal sleep
Would that it not manifest
through its wooden coffin,
like a ghost
or work through the peat
(and break packed dirt)
like a zombie.
Yes, baby,
let us the skeletal remains
or won't we come face to face
with Yorick. (And worms.)

*After a relationship has ended, resuscitating it can be like opening a can of worms.
