Poetry: Another Midnight Hour
Another Midnight Hour
By Laijon Liu 20090421
Another midnight hour,
How quietly it proceeds.
Again I sit up, turn on the TV,
And blankly staring at the late night shows.
Ten years without you,
I’ve watched all these alone.
Never laughed, or cheered
by all these meaningless jokes.
What shall I do now?
Lie down and try to sleep?
Fall in another dream?
To search for you again?
But only to be awakened
by the same nightmare.
Our ending revisits at this hour,
And every time I see you drowning in tears.
Memories never change or fade away,
As our seasons refresh themselves
And encircling our weary soul.
Oh love and fate, how uncertain they are!
Once they grab us, then they never let go.
From tide to tide we are torn apart,
And drift away as the moon changes her face.
Holding your cold pillow,
I can still breathe in your fragrance
That filled the air, this empty space.
For a moment, I thought you never left.
But I know I can never see you
Sitting in front of your dresser,
Wearing your crimson nightgown
And smiling to me in that mirror.
Only my grey hairs grow,
And wrinkles gradually landed on my pale face.
What’s left, only your necklace,
Your lipsticks, cream and powders,
The wooden combs with your silky hair,
And the pot of flower you left on the desk,
The Moonlight Lady is still growing,
And ready to bloom when her time comes.
Oh my sweet heart, do not ask me why,
For every midnight, at this hour
I feed her with my tears.
