Nocturnal

by Chelsey   Jan 3, 2012


Clouded by years of memory,
hazed with final hurtful words,
fill my brain of mere confusion.
The more I pretend to not care,
the level of disbelief rises.

You were held on a pedestal.
Given every ounce of admiration
I once held in my heart.
The rock that stayed strong and firm,
the prayers I could rely on.

In the darkest hours
I found rest in your comforting words.
Now your words leave me nothing,
but restless.

Recently practicing a different way,
a rebirth of my being.
I sleep away worries in the daylight,
awake with thoughts of you at night,
living life nocturnally.

    I love the end, "living life nocturnally". it has a lot of meaning in that one part, not only that you stay awake in the night, but also that its a secret, hidden life, and a life shrouded in darkness. it is truly a powerful image, which complements the underlying emotions. well done.
