In the mind--

Exists a graveyard--

Of infinite expanse--

That grows continuously--

And never slows.

~~~~~~~~~~

Like a black hole,

It extends icy fingers--

And snatches fond memories--

That were once gold--

And turns them dark.

~~~~~~~~~~

Carved stones of gray hues--

And fences of iron rails--

Bar the rays of light--

And cut them from escape--

Leaving the mind eerily void.

~~~~~~~~~~

The void is of infinite expanse--

And grows continuously and never slows--

Until the day is met when--

Death carries away an empty body--

To its final resting place below.
