Lucifer

I wake and prowl the night … sleep so hard won … the relief of cool water on a hot day …

There is trouble in the air … devils roaming underfoot … each with its own aims … soft knowing smiles on dissolute faces …

Is this feeling of electric light to be borne … a fever spreads and skin shivers … every nerve finding its fire … its one true end … a sensation of destruction come and gone …

Like burnt flesh in the sun … too many hours … rays of relentless penetration … Lucifer knows this game well … and never loses …

But the cool water of oblivion calls again … the night is there still … possessed of its devils always … its myriad dark embraces …

And so the fire will be there too … ever present … when fevers return … such will not be denied …

For now though the quiet of silence … come lie with me love … know comfort in what it tells … know darkness … know all …
