Late At Night (poem)

Updated on July 16, 2012

It’s late at night a lonely path and him

This shadow seems to permeate the air

The darkest dreams are there within his whim

The realm of reason does not linger there

-

If there was hope it ran to yesterday

When there were signs of stars across the sky

And there existed feelings to betray

And breezes were not heard to say goodbye

-

How sweet and warm the dawn of spring can be

When flowers spark the birds to sing a song

And lovers shed a kiss amid their tree

It’s there a heartbeat and a soul belong

-

It’s late at night a lonely path and this

Another footstep joining his abyss

      I loved this. It's 6:12 in the morning and I having a steaming cup of coffee, and one of the first things I do is turn my police scanner on as I drink my coffee. I was reading your hub, and like clock work, right at the part,

      'another footstep joining....'

      Seen the eyeball with fingers, then BAMM!! The scanner blared! I jumped out of my hide! Ha. I'm awake now and also a big Fan.

      "If there was hope it ran to yesterday

      When there were signs of stars across the sky"
