The Midnight Song

We watched the waves at night as though theyโ€™re ours,
I dread the ascent of the brightest star.
The buzz of mirthful children playing cars,
It gives my forlorn nights the coldest fire.

The gloomy moon would grin to join me sing
The saddest carol he could never hear,
The gleeful cry to see him kissed his ring;
The nights were fonder with my only dear.

To hear the creaks of bed when he was gone,
On couch, I dreamt he was my gallant groom,
Heโ€™s mine until the midnight cold and dawn:
But now, his wife and tykes do need him home.
Alone with guilt, I cannot set the beat,
Like rocks and stones, forgetting how to breathe.

The Saddest Song

Today I sang
the saddest song
uttering the low notes
in high dudgeon
with lovers and lovely gaze.

Fixed, flashy, and fierce,
the eyes that fazed me
like fire shooting up my
veins, the stare that locked
me in a buried dungeon.

I am your prisoner
you stole my heart,
and you never knew,
you never felt, but
you hear my music.

Itโ€™s your love song
but my sad song,
a song my heart carols,
the song I sang when
you’re exchanging rings.

The Spectator

You sing the most beautiful
song I’ve ever heard,
a pitch-perfect serenade
only a loving heart can hear.
The melody tells me
we belong together.
I feel your heartbeats
in every rhythm.
In every note
such a deep peace,
In my head
your voice lingers
You are my harmony
and she’s so lucky.
You’re singing
a song for her.
