Piano - Poem by Gustavo Lucas Luna

a piano from a distance
playing a soothing requiem
the weeping of mourners
echoing in each string
the bloodstained keys
by deepening grief stricken
by languid fingers struck
the horror draws near
pupils dilate with fear
capillaries to the surface come
bloodshot my eyes become
darkness cuddles me
in its cradle of shadows
and sings a lullaby to me
of eternal elusive sleep
