The horrors and mysteries of the night and its ruler...
Lord of The Night

agitated stars of heaven
the northern winds
mouths of the rivers, the deep of the world
run through lofty mountains
light’ning flash strikes a valley
adds a scorch and scab to the earth
pulsing flame is quenched by water
under a smelly tree

now a mem’ry- lovely places
the burning sun
the righteous garden, storehouses of blessings
the awakened one
cosmologist, alchemist, magi
read their signs but never whisper a word
mastic resin, honey comb, armor
still present themselves

holy watchers
of the cosmos
great with triumph
marvelous
the wicked wives
all-devouring giants
feed the lord of the night

ten thousand angels
luminaries
seek their paths and
prison cells
wake up screaming
buried alive by
the lord of the night

two or three winters of deviant mysteries
the secret year
the accursed of the accursor
bitterly endure
never-ending execration
presides this time over spirits of men
clamour, terror, human virtue
command the nation
~
all nations- even paradise
weak and strong
transgresser spirits, heavenly angels
sing their cryptic songs
In the mirror war-paint and make-up
wear your dyed cloth and jewels of old
as the incense slowly burns
in the fading sight

holy watchers
of the cosmos
great with triumph
marvelous
the wicked wives
all-devouring giants
feed the lord of the night

ten thousand angels
luminaries
seek their paths and
prison cells
wake up screaming
buried alive by
the lord of the night

the lord of the night x
