Closer To Midnight


picture by dana dampier


When silence strikes
The small moments of midnight
The only light
Is the flickering of a candle
Truth emerges
From deep within
Because that's the time
Your heart and mind merge
Lightning strikes
Before your eyes
Reality brings tears
Muffled cries
Thunder beats at your chest
While you and darkness
Grow closer
