MIDNIGHT TALES

MIDNIGHT TALES

A Poem by DrD

My dog circled twice and abandoned me to sleep

And the circling of the clock

Closes in on me like quicksand.

The room is dark except for the glow of the fireplace

Causing shadows to dance against the walls

Like selva savages whirling in their frenzy.

And my aloneness burdens my heart

Evicting my soul to the chill of the night air.

 

It should not be like this, I know

Twenty-one years should tarnish memories

And strengthen resolve.

But you are here as surely as the clock’s rhythm

And I sense you beside me

Your head resting on my shoulder.

And again I will close the dark curtain of sleep

Until morning when I await the lonely night.
