Quemis

Hypnos

  

  How striking the resemblance,
  You and your brother share.
  Especially during dreamless nights, 
  When you adorn his exact, 
  Cold,
  Visage.

 

  How taunting the ambivalence!
  Your game was never fair.
  Is it you or him that tortures us,
  With Heavenly Mirage? 

 

  Perhaps it is familial, and matriarch conspire?
  Her darkness that is shrouding, 
  Every 
  Earthly 
  Delight.

 

  Perhaps it is heretical, and too bold to inquire;
  The gods too self important, 
  To care for mortal plight.

 

  Endless your boastful arrogance,
  To pure darkness command;
  Blinded by debauchery
  And cover of the night.
  Your triad forgets dreamers,
  the dying still with fight,
  The blind to whom no sunset
  Shall ever pilfer sight.

 

  For now your sedatives will stand,
  But a champion takes our cause!
  Your siren song is sweetly,
  But Hemera give you pause.

 

  Did you ignore your sister?
  The daughter dusk forget?
  Whose luminous abandon,
  Assaults indigo sky?
  Her cavalry of fire,
  Your oppression offset!
  And for another day at least,
  Hold back eternal sigh.
