I’ll tell you about my cemetery,
It is indeed not ordinary.
For although it marks the memories of those who’re dead,
It only exists inside my head,

The first and biggest grave of them all catches your eye straight away.
“HAPPINESS, died age 10, sorely missed each day.”

The next grave along has been there longer, old and gnarled with age.
“CONFIDENCE, taken from us age 8, never to return again.”

The following grave seems not looked after at all, unkempt and covered in weeds.
“CONTROL, age of death unknown, gradually faded it seems.”

The next grave is crushed, shattered into pieces, scattered all over the ground.
You can just make out “The DREAMS Family, taken one by one, bodies still yet to be found.

It continues this way all through the yard, up until a freshly dug grave.
It simply says “HOPE, gone but not forgotten, too far gone to save.”

You once said that my poem about the burning books was great because I'd adopted another persona, sort of thing. You've done the same thing, only much better. I love the way you show how you've progressed through life, each shattered feeling being buried.

Left speechless, and can't think of anything to say that would represent the words you have wrote. The truth is to real to be commented on...
