Waiting for Midnight

Waiting for Midnight

A Poem by fiery-san
"

Nothing but looming shadows and the final minutes of it all...

"

It looms, the heavy scent of doom

Silent yet unseen

you could feel it creeping, enshrouding you

A resounding gong, your fear and anticipation spikes

Spreading through the recesses of one's psyche

 

Your heart quickened and skipped

Doubt rushing followed by regrets

What if

The words mimicked the actions of a broken record

 

You dare shake away the shadows, hope blooms

You take a deep breath, the fear returns

You feel so cold within your solitary musings

So alone, you were always alone

 

The gong echoes once more, signaling the coming hour

Midnight has come with shades of gray and black

Is it the beginning of destruction or is it really the end of it

You wait once more for the strike of midnight

 

Just to be sure...

The end has truly come.

Wow. This is amazing.

I love the emotion and nervousness that has been administered through this piece. It makes me remember my regret, the one I choose to suppress day after day. It's not a regret that eats away at my soul, but a regret that makes me wonder... What if? If I had went through that door, and then down that path, what could have happened? Would my life be drastically different? Would I be a different person than I am now?

Ah, again, an absolutely wonderful poem! Horrible for people with regrets, and invigorating for those who can understand how to deal with them properly ;) Well, for the most part, anyhow.

Bravo! Once again, Bravo!
Ah, you are brilliant.

i thought about shadow beings or monsters... then as i glimpse on the tags lines and short description...its about the end of the world... well i always say the future is uncertain we never know unless we are seers that can see the future... i think we just let the future be and let it be... though its not bad to be prepared right..
great write... thought-provoking...

I really like this! Then again I really like anything to do with midnight so that is why I clicked here honestly but your poem has so much more depth to offer. "Just to be sure... The end has truly come." That was my favorite part and got me to think the most (even though it was sadly the end.)
