The Banshee Cries


I split the night, I know

I want to

Further chaos into silent

Human sleep


I have neither quiet

Nor rest

Why should you?


And when my piercing

Work is done

And I’ve coursed through

Your family


I’ll come for you

You won’t see though

You will hear

And maybe at last



Too late to fix your



That’s done:


And you will come with me

To a place

Where hellish noise is

All you know



Betraying man

Who spoke

Curses in love
