Midnight Musing: A Poem

Updated on November 9, 2012
Source


Do you hear me in the night air?

Do you see me standing out there?

Staring down at city lights so bright

While you gaze up at pinpoints of light


Does the moon speak to you like it does to me?

Haunting minds and souls with its quiet mystery

Or are you asleep awakened to a world of dreams?

Where imagination and reverie burst at your mind's seams


I wish I was there to hold you in my arms

To see your bright eyes and keep you from harm

Instead I'll stand out here all alone

Until my heart is near you, resting at home.

      'While you gaze up at pinpoints of light'.

      Interesting line. You might be interested to read President George H. W. Bush's 1988 nomination address in which he used the interesting figure of speech 'a thousand points of light'.

      Blessings.

      I like your description of this poem. I hadn't quite realized it was communicating that. Although, when writing poetry, I seem to try to convey feeling before imparting knowledge or even a certain theme.

      A hauntingly accurate insight into the alienation of big city nights.

      Voted beautiful.

      I'm up at midnight sometimes, usually hubbing. Though yes, sometimes I do feel that the moon speaks to me. Nice hub earning you a beautiful.
