I was considering the suit of Cups as a storyline and it occurred to me that the woman in the Four of Cups looks very similar to this woman, only in different dresses. In the Four, the woman is resting in a coffin in her wedding dress, holding a posy of flowers. As I'm looking at it, in the Five of Cups she's risen from her grave. The flowers have withered and died from her undead touch, and as others have said, she's gone to visit the grave of an old lover. She's wearing the color of "coming out of mourning", suggesting to me that she's married again, to the vampire who made her. So while her old lover is dead, she's got a new husband and a future with him to look forward to.

Also, note that she's standing outside the graveyard. She can't enter because it's holy ground.
