Tears at Midnight

That was the night you got to me

You came to me seeking comfort

You came to me to share

To talk, to cry and to sleep

I was there

 

That was the night you came to me

You met me in the dark

Dressed sharply in black

You kissed me, you cried with me

I was there

 

That was the night you scared me

Describing to me what happened

Sharing your opinion – it frightened me

You clenched me, you had no idea

I was there

 

That was the night you shared with me

Trembling into the hours

I opened up to you

My emotions under the blanket

Did you know I was really there?

 

That was the night you hurt me

Like a vacuum next to my heart

Shocked out of reality

How did I not know

That I was really there?

    I love this one Lisa. Some lovely soft rhyme in the first stanza with share/I was there. An with dark/black in the second. I think it gives just enough away, but still keeps the reader guessing about the exact nature of the exchange. The darkness is really palpable and the repetition is fantastic. A great read. Look forward to more poems from you

    Thanks Chris 🙂 Means a lot! Actually wrote that one a few years ago. Let’s see what else I’ll come up with.
