Midnight Moment


The center of dark

Light lies far afield

Either direction

Fatal fates are sealed

Midnight leaves its mark


Beautiful twilight

As with coming dawn

Not in reflection

The curtains are drawn

For this is the night


The middle of black

An unlit moment

Ebony perfection

The evil latent

Stars take the sky back


Twelve chimes ghostly bell

Time points to the sky

Without detection

Quickly passes by

No time left to dwell

    as much as I like seeing the moon in the night sky, it doesn’t come close to seeing the sun in the morning sky…

  4. Time was running out on me but I found this post!
