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

    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

  • I finally have a blog.

    October 10, 2019 by

    Hey, I’m MidnightSkyPoet. 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
