Night-Shade

There came a darken shadow
hiding silk-woven star blankets
of the night-shaded sky.

The world black
with coal fumes
rising from nostrils
and exiting fire rings
in the exhaust of
an open scream.

Nightmares shrouded
behind auburn eyes
a familiar scent
of burnt wood
amidst the candle
scent of Christmas pine.

Jesus crucifix hangs on wall
peering into pupils
black and bright
the same shadow
mimics light,
a resurrection of hope.

Repeat after me:
There came a darken
shadow hiding stars
with fire fumes
and a passionate heart
still breathing
with smoked-infused lungs.

I turn on the light switch,
an eerie flicker
from the dislocated bulb
shining through the scream,
“dream a better dream.”
