Sacrifice

A night is immolated in the morning pyre

Ridiculed dreams were unable to rest through the night

Suffering in silence; darkness prowled the landscape

They sought refuge in the heart, but there was no escape

Farcical day gathered an audience to applaud 

Dreams suffered the ignominy in silence

Banshee’s call prepares them for an eventual fate
