The Mourning Stops 
The Mourning Stops



Phantoms in a painted room
Holding onto the past poignantly
Something like the present exists
And lasts there forever to remind me

Pull the shade down now
And mourn for those long passed
Throw open the windows anyhow
And let some air in here fast

Iím not into mourning the dead
People, places, or relationships.
Itís never long ago enough that I was fed
The smells of death on her purple lips.

The morticians do a great job
If youíre into the look of mannequins,
No more blood pumps thru those veins
The dust and decay still shows on the skin.

Just returned from Getteysburg, the most haunted place in the world it's said, guess what.. it's true!

Bravo! Again you break away from the norm and into the darkness.As a "dark" poet I cannot say that I could have written a better piece if dark is what you wish to call this.
