sighing breaths
pierce through the moon
archaic poems
whispered,
gently spoken
coarse and strained
until her lips
were blistered.

knarled branches,
graveyard sorrows,
the killer waits among -
enticing her
into his grasp
from which her throat is wrung

/i love you/
is what he said,
/i love you/
is what he said,
he loved her enough to put
her in a six-foot-under
bed...

willow trees
frowning
upon the cemetery's silence,
"the bitch
got what she
deserved"
the willows' verbal violence

a silver casket
veiling all the
ashes and decay,
roses litter the
gravestone where
he is still astray


/i love you/
is what he said,
/i love you/
is what he said,
he loved her enough to put
her in a six-foot-under
bed.
This is kind of abstract and oddly-stylized, but I enjoyed writing it.

This is awesome "is what he'd said," kinda annoyed me because it sounds weird but it's all good

Well thank you~.

And, Imma probably edit to so that it says "is what he said" if that helps at all. :P
