Requiem of Mephistopheles


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
