Midnight Waves

Midnight Waves

A Poem by Meg

This is a poem I wrote on the back of a receipt (I didn't have anything else, don't judge) when I was in Florida watching the water on the edge of a pier late at night. Hope ya'll like it.

There is a sense of calm I do not trust
beneath the midnight waves. 

Danger lurks below the face 
and laughs at us placid knaves. 

How could I be but drawn
to such beauty inside such still? 

Something to wild to ever be tamed
no matter how deep our will. 

Laugh at me, midnight waves, 
and toss your foaming manes.

Entrap me in this deadly still
where I shall ever remain.

I say yet again what wonderful writing. It does speak to me. People are nothing but waves in a rippling pond of life and as you said. Nothing is what is seems beneath the surface. Thank you for the writing.
