The Skull

Buried beneath
centuries of secrets.
Layer
upon compressed layer
of mystery
and intrigue.

Unearthed
to make way
for a car park.
Treated
with more reverence
than ever
you commanded
in this life.

Forensically examined.
A large gash
almost cleaved you
in two.
A violent death.
For what cause?
For what lover?

Does the passage
of time
ease
your departure?
Make it
less bloody,
less painful,
less wrong?
