daylight & nightmare

exchanging daymare for nightlight

he dwelt in sepulchres hallowed, unholy

preferring nightmare to daylight

in ancient days she thrived in the sight

of the virgin moon in the pure sky’s sea

exchanging daymare for nightlight

he kept himself secret, absorbing the rite

by rote of the pagans of times older than he

preferring nightmare to daylight

her freedom had hid her from vulture and kite

unsullied by human hands cursed and bloody

exchanging daymare for nightlight

the darkened riddles of caverns once bright

he uncovered, discovered, claiming mastery

preferring nightmare to daylight

it was there that he found her, arrested in flight

escaping from horrors much stronger than she

exchanging daymare for nightlight

preferring nightmare to daylight
