The Gathering

Luminous beings lurking in the depth
of the night,
mouthing mournful songs of the departed
and the damned.
Stories they unveil
through anarchic syllables
screeching at my ears.

Shadowy beings looming in the corner
of my mind,
wriggling victorious dances of the remorseful
and the unredeemed.
Memories they reveal
by delving into the past
I inearthed winters ago.

Mere human being I am in the midst
of their encirclement,
welcoming clamorous tiers of voices
into my empty existence.
Mirages I am shown
like promises of salvation
blunting earthbound woes.
