the sun's dappling
masks the pulseless veins
her fingers stroke the fiery corpses
mocking wormservants
and tricking lovers into believers
of beautiful death

the crisp of bones fragment
beneath secret feet and lift
their dusthymns in the truthlight
of autumn's moon

that will not hide
beneath the patchwork of her dress
this patient haunting
where their skeletons
moan lower
in some places

if you would dig me deep enough
you will find the moss damp
where I will only sleep
until full lipped winds
quicken me to twine
once more around your limbs

to rise
your vernal Lazarus

Oh my!!  This is haunting in such a beautiful way.  
I love that first verse of yours and every emotion and metaphor in between.  
Your ending is absolutely fabulous.  I am always in for something special
when I read you and you don't ever disappoint fair lady!!

Spellbinding indeed, dear Heather! To read more than once to catch all the special hues that you wove in.

A multi-layered Halloweeny poem of love! Expertly crafted ~ and eerie! Loved it!
