Poetic Series: Nights | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

x
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)–

Shadows

Your eyes cast shadows
over desolate lands
of lifeless sorrows
where I’ve made my stands.

Jet-black strands
of hair radiate the morrow.
Deep, dark eyes and pale of hands
fill my soul’s deep hollow.

Your naked back on the canvas stand
and its cadent brushes with tips of hair
paint the lustful wetlands
of my surrender with tremors left to bear.

Poem… North Star of the Deep Black Sky | Page Seven | Book of Spells

by Luis S. González-Acevedo…

North Star of the Deep Black Sky

Page Seven
of the Book of Spells

Sacred Book of Spells do conjure
from death true lovers’ fate,
severed by the ocean’s torture.
I pray: New bonds of loving lust create.

Call upon these gentle spirits and let them fly,
so the blessing of their lust & love ablaze
becomes the North Star of our deep black sky.
I pray: Their lustful love, do save.


–The Book of Spells will appear in a future book of poems & stories (release date | July 2021)–

Poem… Passion

Passion

(translation|modification of Pasión)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Fantasies of words,
ecstasy without reason…
Only you reside
in the dwellings of my heart.

The love you offer
intoxicates my heart;
the love I correspond to
is without comparison.

You, My Love,
are unforgettable.
The longer my life,
the more, and more I’ll love you.

My Blessed Love,
you accompanied my youth,
became my light of joy,
and mitigated sorrows.

From your hands: a thousand caresses
From your lips: a thousand kisses
From your arms: a thousand delights
From your heart: eternal love.

The tender gaze
of your fountains of fondness
jet watery arches
into the pool of my soul’s affections.

Poem… Torment

Torment

(translation|modification of Tormento)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Torment in a fantasy world,
a god suffers because of his beloved’s contempt.
This fool hides behind clouds,
spearing with mortuary cries.

From his hard-set eyes,
tears fall like eagles.
His beloved awaits. They accompany pleasures
from another who hides in the skies.

On her face, one tear falls to the left,
a second to her right.
Both glide toward her breasts…
Tense like harp strings…
Stirring goose bumps…
Like poison injecting life
as her mortal skin trembles.
