NaPoWriMo 2021 – DAY 02 – Midnights

i love the stillness of midnights.

silent ruffles drunk on sadness

setting off; a firestorm of

nostalgia,

intrigue,

courage.

consumed by poetry

I teeter beyond the walls of

sanity,

comfort,

phobias.

what do I do of the keepsakes?

i simply bury them

in the stillness of midnights

at the exact middle of overskies

not ahead

not beyond

just there, dug up in precision

the dimensions of the grave

not an inch less

not an inch more

positioned under the bougainvillea

cause mistletoes are meant for lovers

and we weren’t lovers;

the midnight and I.

 

I am participating in NaPoWriMo 2021. 30 days. 30 Poems.
