The graveyard isn't where you need to be, that's a higher level area. There's a sword in that area called the Zweihander and it's the best 2H sword in the game. If you want to go 2H, make a suicide run passed the skeletons and on a corpse in the graveyard you will find it, just let them kill you after (you keep items when you die).
The path you need to go to is up the hill to the right of the bonfire (opposite direction of the graveyard), it leads you to the Undead Burg (that's what the area is called, right now you're in Firelink Shrine).
Keep in mind this is an open world game (semi-open world), and you can run into areas that are too strong for you at current level (the skeletons/area beyond them are for about half way into the game). If you find yourself being easily killed, you probably wandered in the wrong direction.
