Midnights in Voice

I cannot be
by the days light
Only in shadows
dimly glow
can I free my
every effort...midnights voice

To keens play
upon all asunder
my words do glow
when the light is under

You ask, given, and received
Words that readily deceive
Do you expect me to plunder
My words as midnight's humbler

Listen, then decide
Where it is you reside
Between the silence of every word
Or breathlessly on the shards of your reward

    Fantastic write. nice lines-

    'Your words glow when the light is under'
    No wonder you are called midnights voice
    At times your words roll down like rumbling thunder
    Breaking all the silence asunder! ! (Report) Reply
