I am in a lost and forgotten world where time stands still.
Flowers wilt and fade amongst the neglected graves.
They sit sad and lonely in the distance
grey and dull like invisible statues
spirits disconnected from the world.
A thin mist blankets all it finds
protecting the dead.
The deafening silence overwhelms me till the bell chimes.

I see the ancient vines covering the graves like a shield.
It’s so calm and peaceful walking among them.
The sad forgotten graves crumbling slowly like decaying wood
dull, lifeless stones sitting in a sea of colour.
The smell of salty sea air from the coast
the scent of perfume drifting in the air
wondering what people still visit this beautiful and mysterious place.
I hear the silent voices of lost souls speaking to one another
whispering of memories long ago
in another time.
