The Unpainted Tomb

an unpainted tomb, laid to rest with no love or grace

It laid in the midst of the cemetery
beneath the big gloom tree 
leaves withered and dry 
cased aside, I wondered why 
unpainted with no statement, no here lies
the faceless tomb, not wife, nor a groom
no tears, no weary eyes
like a bat in the day they all stared blind
no family, no love 
unpainted, with no name, no face
no statement of happiness or grace
no one to bare their sorrows 
no one to grasp their pain 
just a body in a room.
I guess they feel cold when the sun's out
and worst when the bell shouts
to see the gathering they didn't have 
left all alone, with no one to mourn.
