GRAVE REMINDER

IMG_8929 

Written by John Bentz and HastyWords

Creaking trees ice-laden

Limbs snapping, echoing

Eerie quiet unsettling

My heart shaking in the dark

 

I can feel your angry eyes

Staring at me from beyond

Your fingers digging into my flesh

A ghostly reminder of your touch

 

The burden that you laid upon me

Is here buried in the snow

Chilling my every thought

Freezing my very soul

 

Your screaming ricochets inside my head

Accompanied by an outdoor frozen concerto

Groves of heavy barren winter branches

Scratching their peculiar song into the wind

 

Each foot falls heavily, slowly following the other

Eyes bloodshot and lost in darkness

Memory chilling reality; melting as one

The crunch of snow adding to Nature’s chorus

 

Running from a guilt I can’t outrun

Emotions like fragile crystal about to shatter

I fall to my knees and wait for you

To exact revenge from the grave I put you in

  1. Another great poem/song that brought to mind another song I really like!

    Here’s it’s lyrics –

    “The Cold, The Dark & The Silence”
    by Sea Wolf

    Please don’t lie, don’t lie to me
    that you’re not afraid, my love.
    I know you well enough to know
    you can’t be alone.

    If you were to roll, to roll down your window
    you’d find the wind, the ice, the trees
    that sway like skeletons outside.

    But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
    it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

    Please don’t fight, don’t fight with me
    and fold your arms like it’s the end.
    Can you smell the sweetness of the soil and snow in the wind?

    So we’re lost, we’re lost out here on the plains, my love.
    It’s only wind and ice and trees that wave from above.

    But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
    it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

    When the cold, the dark, and the silence come
    it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

    Don’t lie
    Don’t cry
    It’s over
    It’s only the leaves, the trees
    I’ll never leave you alone
    In this car
    In the dark, with the air getting so much colder.
    It’s so clear outside here, in the moon and winter air.

    But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
    it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

    When the cold, the dark, and the silence come
    it’s like a sudden rush of water
    it’s like a sudden rush of water
    it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

    The cold, the dark and the silence.
    The cold, the dark and the silence.
    The cold, the dark and the silence.
    The cold, the dark and the silence.
    The cold, the dark and the silence.
    The cold, the dark and the silence…
