Midnight Skies
Hold Secrets.

How many times
Have you wished
For eternal bliss? 
For a jar of 
Twinkling stars?
To ride a shooting star
Far
Far away?

Midnight Skies
Hold Secrets.

They whisper 
Fairy-tales to 
Neglected childhoods.
They sprinkles pixie-dust 
To break down
Society's rust
Consuming dreamers.
 
Midnight Skies
Hold Secrets.

Children
Gaze at stars
To help forget 
The scars
On their 
Innocent Hearts...
Another Hatred casualty...
Don't take away
Their midnight play.
Let them dream,
Let them believe
In 
Justice
and 
Fantasy.
Let them believe
Love isn't fake.
Have a heart,
Let them make
A world 
Like heaven.
That is where you
Want to go too,
Right?

Midnight Skies
Hold Secrets.

Midnight skies 
Know the cure
To a selfish world;
The vast voids
Of twists and curls,
Of mystery and possibly,
Open Up 
For impossible dreams
From neglected children...
From any children.

Midnight Skies
Hold Secrets.

Children
Don't live to
Hate.
Children
Haven't met Fate:
Stitches and blood.
Don't forget
You'll ruin them...

Midnight Skies 
Hold Secrets.

Destroyed your own dreams
And
Ruined your own 
Make-believe
Reality.
Are you proud?
Do you even know 
The sound
Of happiness?
Remember when you
Used to gaze at stars?
Pass on Hurt.
Desolate Innocence
With Corruption.
Hurt a child,
You'll hurt yourself 
More.
One day,
When your at Hell's doors
You'll wish you loved
Her more.
Of course,
You don't believe
Any of this...
Expand that ego,
Let is overflow.
But remember...

The Midnight Skies
Hold Secrets
You'll never know.

Author's Note

CoconutSprinkles08
"I think the toughest battle in life is to remain that pure, innocent, optimistic child we all once were. Society tries to teach you to become logical and 'proper,' but I think the only way to survive is to remember that, at one point in time, you believed you could do anything, and you didn't care about what other people thought. And isn't that what people tell you to do all the time anyway?" Me

"There's something that only you can do in this world. Just because you may think of yourself as ordinary or someone that will never be 'cool' or 'popular', there's a goal that only you can achieve. There's an impression that only you can give other people. There's a life changing event that only you can create. No one can replace you. Don't give up on yourself." Me

"And finally I twist my heart round again, so that the bad is on the outside and the good is on the inside, and keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be, and could be, if there weren't any other people living in the world." Anne Frank

"It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart." Anne Frank

“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.” James Dean

“Dreams are illustrations... from the book your soul is writing about you.” Marsha Norman

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” Michael Jackson

I adore this for so many reasons. You portrayed something most never uncover, truth be told, and you raised awareness in such a manner that it's loudly spoken of and just...contageous, makes all of us as readers somehow want to make our own differences in lives and not just miss signs.

and indeed the midnight skies do hold secrets shared by many... can totally relate to this well written gentle poem. The twist at the end is perfect.

This poem is written from an interesting perspective. I don't think I've ever read a poem that speaks directly to the abuser before. Some of those pictures below the poem were just heart-breaking.

I think this is one of my favorites by you so far. I've written a lot of poems on child abuse, but this is simply amazing. Thank you for sharing.
