Beyond Midnight



It's that moment of stealth
beyond midnight
when the day slips away
never to be seen again
when regrets are left behind
or carried through to another midnight
when new desires are erected
on the ashes of the old
and time becomes an enemy.

Beyond midnight
is an unfathomable abyss
a welcome leap into a future
or a mistaken step back into the past
a forfeiture of dreams
an augury of hope
what will you do
beyond
midnight.
