Midnight Star (poem)

Updated on November 15, 2013

A blossom floating with a midnight star

A dream perhaps the moonlight didn’t say

But in this moment nothing seemed to care

As world so real and fantasy collide


This dance in daze no thoughts of thorns could mar

Those times ago were very far away

In arms of this much was no longer there

Just drifting beauty splendor as her guide


A magic wind breathed music from afar

With memories of ever to convey

And silent sighs of so much more to share

As thoughts of ever held her by its side


And in the end no reasoning could bar

So dark became the season of dismay

Beside a deadly drugless needle’s glare

A blossom in a midnight star had died

Music only

      I was surprised to see the needle, having seen first the title in my email notification. So sad that people lose themselves and their lives this way.

      It's so very sad that such things are possible, but you write about it so well. Perhaps it could be a wake-up call for someone and save a life. We can hope.

      This is a way of life for so many. Sad, yet a beautiful reminder, the needle kills..Another great one Martin...

      I saw the title before I made it to the hub. Then, I saw the needle which took me by surprise. Losing someone can take us all by surprise. A very powerful write. V+ for sure.
