Charming the Dead Within

“I’m dead inside” you say.
Like a graveyard
at midnight.

No mourners here
to trod untrodden
paths by your headstone.

Soulless and moonlit,
an empty body,
a starless night sky.

Heretic prayers,
unheard, fall on
silent winds.

I call your name,
wordless in my
incantation.

I yearn to
feel you
breathe inside me.

Take this lifeless
carcass and fill my
underworld with your darkness.
