Rainwater has soaked into the velvet bodice and skirt of your dress, the hem caked in mud. It continues to pour down into the cemetery, small rivulets running down your neck and face carrying away with them the last remnants of your grief. The thick material of the black dress does little to keep your skin from growing chilled and numb, your body trembling, freezing down to your bones. Your hands lay lifelessly by your side, your fingers dipping into the damp, overturned earth even as it syphons away any lingering warmth within your blood.
The graves just beyond your knees are still fresh. The soil has taken in the deluge of water greedily, the loamy brown soil of the morning turning a thick, gluttonous black as the setting sun leads the world into twilight. Thin rivers run over the polished marble headstones, curling into the words etched into their faces and dripping into the prim bouquets lain at their feet. A stuffed bear is slumped against the smallest of the three, its fur worn and stained. Towering angels stand guard just behind them, hands clasped to their chests in prayer, their veiled, sweet faces bent toward the earth in despair.
