The Ancient Dead Remain

The corpse adjudged
Without shame
Nor worry
The past flees
Cascade started
Should the spirit be missing
And life is gone
The shadows and mist
Refuse to part
These bones exist
And the ancient dead remain
Before the court
A case presented
Though flesh has parted
The dead live the same
Skeletal remnants of life
Artifacts of existence
Bleached white
The life that is lost
Is a memory
A ghost
Still haunting
Still mourning
The loss
