i was afraid to speak, oh yes, i was.
when i found poetry, it never let me be afraid to write.

    01:11hrs What an hour to be so awake Only to be devoured by thoughts of you, What a perfect hour to set the tears free From the bondage of my ego, What an hour to remember every word I should’ve said when I saw you today, What a perfect hour to pour  all my forsaken… Read more

    I like to thinkthat you aren’t just humanlike every other girlI had loved before you-I count at leasta million galaxies in your eyeseach time they light up in the dark,goosebumps and butterflieswhen you lock your fingersat the back of my neckeach time we’re dancingright before you say goodnight-you look so beautiful even whenyou’re slumped on… Read more


    August 17, 2020 by

    A handwritten note and a stolen ring,you asked for my heart,I gave you my life,we stood at the altar and kissed for the first time, you hated me twice on the night I forgot you were sore and tickled your feet,I forgave you the next morning over breakfast you made to tell me you’re sorry,… Read more

  • TO THEM…

    June 13, 2020 by

    To them,your heart isn’t breaking till you cry yourself voiceless,to them,you don’t need lovetill they sing songs in memory of you,to them, you’re not dyingtill you need a tombstone,to them, you’re not here till you’re gone. Love, Midnightskypoet!♥️


    June 11, 2020 by

    Times were hard,death wriggled its way into our bones,andhate crawled up our our souls-living was like walking on a knife edge, it’s was hard already and wasn’t close to getting easier,the magic wand of the witchcouldn’t cast a healing spell,and the wizard with all his wisdomcouldn’t find the remedyto the chaos we now called life,… Read more

    I daren’t kiss her,she looks at mewith half angry eyes,butshe knows it too-the world can’t know about us,lestwe’ll both be bound in chains by daylightat the mercy of a ruthless mob,paying the price for lovethat is a crime in their eyes! Love,Midnightskypoet!♥️

  • There’s a monster in the closet

    June 1, 2020 by

    There’s a monster in the closet-it’s holding claws to my neck,I must stay still lestI’ll have a slit throat-my hands are tied and I’m down on bended knees,it even hurts to breathe-tears burn my eyes my heart bulges with grief-my spirit is aching for redemption,but-the monster in the closet … Love,Midnightskypoet!

  • Late night blues

    February 22, 2020 by

    Whenever I sing the alphabet,each time I get to L,I instantly skip to O,and then to V …But the word is never complete,always left hanging, a piece of it left behind,just like me,incomplete and hollow,because the best piece of meis a love I had to leave in the past. Love, Midnightskypoet!♥️💫

  • Spring

    February 17, 2020 by

    Spring,it finds us draped in winter woes,holding on to the nostalgia of the first snowfall,losing faith in nature’s good heart,but like a leap of faith that never fails,it lifts our spirits and wakes our numbing hearts with a mere touch of the lukewarm sun. Love,Midnightskypoet! ♥️💫

  • Like a necklace you love

    February 16, 2020 by

    Press me to your heartlike a necklace you love,and in that moment,I will listen as your heart beatsin sync with your breaths,I will drown myself in the music that flows in you,most majestic vessel of beauty,just press me to your heartlike a necklace you love. Love,Midnightskypoet!♥️💫

  • A planet for me

    February 12, 2020 by

  • The genesis

    February 10, 2020 by

  • Her Laugh

    February 10, 2020 by

    Her laugh is a symphony, floats into my ears like bubbles of music,she just laughs and I almost believe that she might cure this crippled heart of mine! Love,Midnightskypoet!♥️💫

  • A promise for a heart

    February 7, 2020 by

    A thousand pearls but she loved me not,a promise sealed with a kiss, and her heart was waltzing in the palm of my hand. Love,Midnightskypoet.

  • Broken muse

    January 8, 2020 by

    She’s a broken muse …cries for hours and then-burst into endless fits of laughter,she curses the rain for drenching her clothes, and then-begs it to stayso she can dance all the way back home, even when all she hasis the teeny-weeny shreds of hope for lovein her broken-again heart,she sings to the stars with a… Read more

  • You could’ve… I would’ve

    November 21, 2019 by

    You could’ve lied to me, I would’ve believed you, you could’ve taken my hand, I would’ve followed you, you could’ve asked me for a dance, I would’ve said yes, you could’ve said you loved me, I would’ve said I loved you too, you could’ve waited a little longer, I would’ve given myself to you. Love,… Read more

  • Remedy

    November 13, 2019 by

    If you find her sitting by herself far from the crowd, humming a slow tune, without a rhythm, most probably a song without lyrics, don’t dare to ask whether she is fine because she’s gonna lie, don’t look into her eyes because shes gonna cry, just hold her tight in your arms, and don’t say… Read more

  • In case …

    November 11, 2019 by

    In case we get caught, never let the love we’ve made grow to be a thorn in your flesh, stuck in you by pangs of guilt,but rather treasure those memories of us and keep them like a garden of roses in the palm of your hand. Love, MidnightSkyPoet

  • Little words

    November 6, 2019 by

    Little words, simple and true, yet a rather hefty load on my chest, for they had a million stories floating in between them. They slid off my tongue with the greatest ease, yet they awoke a flutter of butterflies in my stomach, and sent tingles running down my spine to my feet. They meant the… Read more

  • Belated laments

    November 4, 2019 by

    She painted scars on her wounds, assumed that life would be a little less painful. She drew smiles over marks of tears she’d cried all night, she bought a pursuit of happiness at the cost of herself. She laughed so loud, for the world needn’t have heard the howls of her broken spirit. She talked… Read more

  • Charmed

    October 31, 2019 by

    Beneath your feet were myriads of flowers, from deep red roses to cherry blossoms just for you to walk on, a white lily adorned your hair, and as you walked, your feet brushing on the petals with soft unhurried steps, you smiled, you smiled, you smiled the smile of a moon goddess, I had to… Read more

  • Tomorrow I was …

    October 29, 2019 by

    Tomorrow I was all alone, crying in the dark and you were just a memory, so today when I saw you, I held you so tight I heard your bones crack in my embrace. Tomorrow I was crippled with age, wrinkled thin skin hanging on my frail bones, so today I dived into an ocean… Read more


    October 28, 2019 by

    My throat is choking with secrets from moments I had with you in worlds that are clearly forbidden. Bottled in, these sentiments are now tears flowing like endless rivers in the cracks of my shattered soul. Our hands are tied, we gave up too soon, and now we’ve been cuffed by what the world will… Read more

  • While I’m still here

    October 27, 2019 by

    So dear, before I too become a fading memory, before the invisible forces of nature carry me away, before I’m named among the befallen, and you must look to the heavens to find me as you pray, smile for me, tell me, have me while I’m still here. midnightskypoet–#8

  • Clandestine

    October 23, 2019 by

    Your lips upon mine, the seal of a forbidden acquaintance, pure of all innocence, yet so sweet, for it tasted like a sin I lived to commit. The darkness carries the little secrets of this clandestine affair, but for how long shall we be afraid that the dawn of truth could awake uncalled for, and… Read more

  • The world against us

    October 22, 2019 by

    I had so much to tell you,but the world hated us so much, I had to weave my love into secrets and keep it under lock in my heart. midnightskypoet–#6

  • Goodbye for tomorrow

    October 20, 2019 by

    Goodbye for tomorrow, pardon my cliche, but I love you and always will. When I close my eyes, I can see my finish line, truly, I’m scared, but I’ve never felt braver. I wish I’d loved you better but I’m glad that when I’m gone, you’ll find the love you deserve. Goodbye for tomorrow. Midnightskypoet–#5

  • Winter woes

    October 19, 2019 by

    When the leaves are gone, and you’re all alone, the air is cold and there’s no one to hold you, have no pride, there’s nothing to hide, call me, I’ll be your winter flame. midnightskypoet–#4

  • SHE

    October 15, 2019 by

    Her walk is magnificent,it’s uncommon to doubt thatshe’s an angel.She has mastered the laugh of a goddess,candles are sparked into crimson flameswhen she flashes her smile.But her heart, oh her heart,once a gem, now a rock of ice,marked with tallies of hearts she has broken.she has long forgotten the scent of roses,now prefers the taste… Read more

Nope, it doesn’t mean that I have a little cave on the moon where i escape to at midnight. oh yes, i had meant to tell you it also doesn’t mean I spill poetry on paper with every breath I take, I’m just a simple human, smitten with literature and particularly in… Read more
