Beneath Cemetery Rains

Beneath Cemetery Rains


Your closed eyes tell of a language of absence

Signalling beauty and porcelain skin

Vacance in sweet pea coloured emotions

Inducing verses from voices within


Gracing soft touches from Arc’s angels

Infuse remedies for smiles light sustain

Silk hands nursing still times redempting

You’re walking on water again


Cheekbone structures emit a tolerance

Spelling truth’s in five lettered rings

A lasting apparition and purity’s kiss

Reside with heavens lesser prettier things


Perfection breathes in quiet timed innocence

From the vale of wanting to sleep

Eternity gains in mortality’s presence

From six foot sorrow, life’s wanting to keep


Your words speak from sancturing absence

Telling of attraction and spiritual vestige

Where shall I sit beneath cemetery rains

Where shall I sleep with your peace
