    “Chasing The Other Side Of Midnight”

    Looking in, inside myself

    For ways

    To escape from within

    ~

    What troubles me?

    No one knows

    No one really knows

    But me

    ~

    Wanting to get out

    Unable to squeeze out

    ~

    My soul’s desire

    Patiently waits

    For my eyes to close

    ~

    Motionless

    My mind runs

    Wild

    Wildly in color

    Chasing shadows

    Of rainbow colors

    Into the darkness

    Of the midnight hour

    ~

    Our souls

    Meet

    Like they do

    All other times

    Under

    Every full moon

    ~

    Lying down

    Next to you

    On a bed of

    Roses

    ~

    Your scent

    Equally matches

    Each

    One

    ~

    Making love to you

    Our souls

    Fade away

    Like steam

    Rising into the sky

    ~

    My eyes reawaken

    Looking into

    The mirror

    Seeing your reflection

    Shine light

    On the darkness

    Of

    The other side

    Of midnight

    very soft subtle and simple...smooth and poignant, a snapshot in motion, or in the words of Amzy..."a verb on pause" i like this a lot.

    This poem started out with me worrying about your thoughts but then I began to see me in the poem and delighted in its description. Most of us feel and react as you do especially when we see anothers reflection shine light on the darkness of the other side of midnight. This is a beautifully touching poem that everyone can relate to. Thank you for sharing this with us that feel just like you.
    Sincerely,

    "Chasing shadows

    Of rainbow colors

    Into the darkness

    Of the midnight hour"

    Lyrical. Sing-songy, but not in any way simple--well, not in the conventional sense. By which do not suggest it is any less wonderful.

    Bewitching. spellbinding. The distant, starlit sense of longing pulled me through the poem like a gentle midnight breeze over a crescent moon.

    Poetry is not always about words, it hardly ever is actually. Poetry is about emotion and the transference of emotion. For awhile their, I was feeling your feelings and getting to know them--So I guess, in a way, I know you now--somewhat at least.

    Malekelm, Nice to meet you, and hope to read from you some more friend.
