Drunk & naked in a graveyard

entry picture

dead flowers past their summer bloom
entwine the cemetary gate,
clinging grim
like a dying man's hands
that pray, yet prayed too late

drunk & naked in a graveyard
cold skin pale cordite grey
cheek against the friendly stone
hurling like a gargoyle spewing rain
on the wettest Autumn day

let me die, Oh, let me die,
I pray, I pray, I pray,
show me to the hollow ground
where all will finally lay

I love the first verse especially and then the movement into acceptance/resignation

This paints a rather pathetic scene that enables the reader to wonder and imagine how they got to this point...

Love the fact that these lines can have more than one meaning...

'cheek against the friendly stone
hurling like a gargoyle spewing rain
on the wettest Autumn day'
