Poetic Series: Nights | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Nights

Dreamful eyes…
piercing through my bedroom window
into seas of empty glass that winnow
my nothingness in the darkness of nocturnal skies.

Celestial eyes…
anxiously expectant,
gazing toward the ghostly vacant
sunrise of amber
and dwindling embers.

Embers burning…
slowly drowning
in the depths of Dawn Lake,
and as they sink, they take
with them my mortal eyes
into those seas of shattered glass… until I wake
again and again… at the end of my long, dark nights.


–Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will be featured in my novel stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal in July of 2021–

–Nights | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will appear in my book of poems & short stories titled Réquiem (release date | January 2021)–
