Graveyard Girl

The graveyard girl walked through the cemetery
She felt at home among the spirits and grave stones
She was dressed in black with purple lips
She had a book by Mary Shelley in her hands
It was called Matilda
She liked to read gothic literature
She enjoyed William Blake and Edgar Allan Poe
She would spend hours in the graveyard
She would take her easel and watercolours
And paint the dark surroundings
She also liked to write poetry
She would write about death and madness
She went to the Zombie Club on a Saturday Night
And met up with her friends
They liked Evanescence and Within Temptation
They all dressed in black
And loved the dark side of life
One Saturday night she did not turn up at the Zombie Club
She had taken her own life
She had cut her wrists in the cemetery
That was her final resting place
She was now one of the spirits
We all remember the graveyard girl

There is darkness in all of us. For some people death can be an obsession.

This is amazing and so familiar... It's like the only mirror where I can see my reflection on it.

It is a fictional account. Nobody died in the writing of this poem.

I learned about a new poet today. Thanks. And a GREAT piece. It reminds us of how death is an obsession. And I take it you have nothing against goths?

Most of my poetry is gothic and I love bands like Within Temptation and Evanescence. I can relate to gothic culture. I definitely have a dark side and like gothic poetry and literature such as Edgar Allan Poe. I am pleased that you enjoyed my poetry.

It depends on if I'm in a gothic mood or not. But I like Within Temptation and Evanescence too. What's your favorite song by them? Edgar Allen Poe is kind of hard to understand, but I know what he's trying to say. I like Pit adn the Pendulum by Poe. Thank you. It's a different way to write, but it's a good way

My favourite Within Temptation song is Stand My Ground followed by Angels. My favourite Evanescence song is My Immortal. I have written a poem called My Immortal and posted it on Youtube with the song in the background. I have seen WT twice in concert in Birmingham. They are a great band. My favourite Poe stories are Masque of the Red Death and The Fall of the House of Usher. Thanks for the comment.

I am happy you liked it. William Blake wrote a poem called The Sick Rose plus many others. He is a famous English poet of the 18th century.
