Love Poem: Preying On Death

Preying On Death

the ravens rest upon the graven cross,
                for it is time to guard death with their wings-
they prey on souls who endure love and loss,
                as a demon weeps and an angel sings;
barren branches wither to ash and bone…
                               one ebon raven longs to perch alone

I chose #2 (black ravens on a cross in a graveyard)
