I did a spoken word version of this poem on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/I6vx6nw9...

Best wishes everyone and keep writing, Westley xx

Graves

by Westley Nash

Before you kill me, first dig two graves...

One for me and the other for my dreams.

You should only dig the first grave shallow,

better to save your strength because you'll need it for the second.

Make sure you dig that one deep!

Cleave as far into the cold earth as you can go,

until any worthless ghosts will be tightly gripped by the eternal claws of damnation!

A headstone?

Why bother?

But if you must then carve them from wood not stone,

so that they too will rot and decay until it were as if they never existed.

And when you are inscribing the names upon them, write only these two things:

Nobody

and Nothing!
