Poetic Series: Requiem for a Dream | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting
by Luis S. González-Acevedo
Requiem for a Dream
Within the confines
of my mind, you plumed
and branded signs
that bled me, leaving me entombed.
You left a requiem for a dream:
my arms groping in the mist
of a pallid phantom’s scheme
whose kiss I did not dare resist.
Puzzling fiction of the unreal:
inexistent figment of my horrid fears
that behind a mournful reality conceals
you… as your medieval image disappears.
Requiem for a dream of hallucinating lust
is a requiem for a dream that turns love into dust.
–Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will be featured in my novel stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal in July of 2021–
–Requiem for a Dream | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will appear in my book of poems & short stories titled Réquiem (release date | January 2021)–
