20. Lacrimosa Lulliby

Black Shades

Who am I but a lulliby for the lucid dreamers?


Trapped in ravenous nightmares and tears for blue laced flowers.


Cry lacrimosa!
Cry like Lazarus as he slept!

The images envoke me in shades of black and white, sooner than later they bleed into vivid color and I'm alive but immoblized in withering nightmares.


Nightmares, so consuming I long to sleep among the dead.


What brings me safety, but sweet lacrimosa shaped water.
