“Whisper” by Freya Pickard.

life abruptly ends
hole gapes in the universe
you're left stranded here

darkness embraces
the dead man
waiting in his tomb
ashes on his grave

lace traceries unfurling
I whisper
to the dead
ashes on my grave

scarlet at the heart
these secrets
I confess in the dead man's ear
and to the ashes of the grave

life abruptly ends
lace traceries unfurling
secrets for the dead
ashes of the grave

hole gapes in the universe
silently waiting
the dead man in his tomb
and the ashes of your grave

you're left stranded here
silent listener
to my confessions
and the ashes of my grave

scarlet at the heart
lace traceries unfurling
darkness embraces
