“The phantom of the dark”
I lay my head upon the pillow.
another sleepless night awaits
my spirit relives the daylight hours
encountering the phantom of the dark.
I dry my saddened eyes
of the tears shed quietly
shattered in the loneliness
her dreams of blooming green horizons
to recall the flowers of the land
dissolved by the insane hurricane
the sky knows your secret
the eyes are needed for this too
don’t torture your soul
the wrinkles speak of your pain
weakening the heart
cries tears of blood,
having tortured the flesh of her flesh
in a dull abominable noon.
On the third day She
smiled once more
of a peaceful joy
breathing life back into life.
Don’t cry mother,
dream again, light up hope
for one day the light will brush your lips
and the nights will be free of the phantom
the pungent and penetrating pain.
