My Radiant Void

The darkest night summons no demons,

Only the flicker of lampshade memories

Knocking, as if searching a shelter,

After murdering,

Chased by their concealed conscience.

The deepest night visits me often in daylight, draped in black coffee.

And we sip wine together.

He has a lot to say.

He doesn’t believe in doors, windows, and clocks.

He enters quite like the landlord.

The darkest night summons no demons,

Only the memories I kill to resurrect.
