I fear that the darkness

might swallow me whole one day

 

I watch those shadows

gather in my room

transpiring against that

resplendent sheen I once held

 

They glow with such an intensity

 

Those demons

have embers in their eyes

sun rays in their talons

goldmine incisors

 

And I’m terrified

 

My nightmares leave me electrified

 

They harbor

dreadful dreams on me

that sanction no room for reprieve

 

I have embedded nettings in my home

have become a spider

scudding out of a web

to scuttle out flies

 

I would become the Devil

in order to rid myself of this luster

 

Take down heaven

for a smidgen of reprisal

a taste of sanctification

 

I condemn the light
