I Shall Wear Midnight

by CJ Maleney   Apr 13, 2017

I will wrap it around me so tightly I will not be seen.
Stars glistening on my skin like pin prick diamonds in night skies

I shall become one with the dark sharing it's secrets.
I will witness the world when it thinks no one is watching,
but the night sees everything.

Camouflaged by night I shall walk in the woods.
Nocturnal creatures will cease their hunting and burrowing when they hear my approach.
They shall not see me for midnight shrouds me.

Yes I shall wear midnight.

      Amazed you found this one tucked away in the depths.

      It's short and sweet but it's one I rather like and I'm glad you do too.

    I should probably say more, but I've read it 6 times and I'm not sure I'm done!

      Glad you like.

      It's a flight of fantasy I guess but does have meaning, well to me anyway.

    There's something about this poem that has drawn me in and, after several reads I'm still not sure what it is...perhaps it's what you haven't said (yet) that got my attention..still not sure haha!!

    I think it could do with some more punctuation...normally I'm not a lover of too much but there are times when it helps to direct the reader to a pause in order to digest what has been said...

      You can't win with punctuation.

      Sometimes I don't use any at all especially with rhymes. And you get criticised for such lol.

      It was necessary for this piece to make it read the way I thought it
