sorrow is a
garden
where my lover lies
alone.
I sit upon the
grass above
my lover’s rotting
bones;
I sit on the green
grass above
his busy stinking
corpse,
where all that now
remains
of love is
shrivelled yellow
gorse.
sorrow is a
garden
where worms invade the
dead,
where maggots
strive to be
the first to
crown
his
golden
head.
I sit upon the
grass above my lover’s
precious
form,
where flesh decays
beneath
the earth that keeps
my love
from harm;
I lay upon the
turf above
his green and putrid
skin
list’ning for the ghostly
sound of wailing
violins.
I hear the insects
crawling
beneath the silken
pall;
I placed it there
with my own
hands
as though it could
forestall
the with’ring of his mortal
flesh
as it rots in the
ground,
and I sit here so stiff with
cold
and never make a
sound.
pain pierces me like lonely
death
when nobody is
here
and life is so abysmal
that
I grin from ear to
ear
just like the reeking
skeleton
my lover will
become
now life has
fled
from his white
head
and I am all
alone.
