nightfuries have escaped / released by Innocence herself / what lessons will they teach
Nightfuries have escaped
released by Innocence herself.
What lessons will they teach?
Dark frightful angels salivate,
to feed off angst and anger, feast,
replace it with despair.
What tendrils of their hair
will wrap around our childhood tears
as we toss and turn tonight?
What lessons must be learned
before the Madrugada1 bows
to wisps of Innocence at Dawn.
Nightfuries hunt till break of day
then hide in coffined corners of our psyche,
released again when stars come out
to rule our skies with fright.
