MIDNIGHT WALK Clarity reveals itself onto me as I walk a slow, deathful pace I listen as my feet suffocate and crush the ground with every step This monotonous continuity eases the sea inside. The moon smirks at me Its beacon light peeking through the balding trees It lights the path I have destined to travel. The stinging cold breeze flows through my ebony hair, pulling it playfully into waves of black My breath dances visibly in front of me Dispersing through the darkness, entangled with the playful breeze that swirls between my hair. The crunching sound, the flourescent moon, the cold and the darkness All purify my thoughts and help me see, see through this tumultuous spectacle And I think of you. But I am not alone My misery walks hand in hand, unshaken by the frigid night My only companion, never fleeing and always lurking to dance again. A sadness clouds and radiates through my skin Breeding and festering The warmth of my clothes gives no comfort Misery observes me, quietly through her glazed somber eyes And I think of you. The trees, fading of life, arch and move with the wind And I move closer to a resolution. This end will be painful, but it was always foretold I will not cease to have you in my thoughts. And as I walk with stars staring through the night Your eyes will be the last that I shall see.
