A Second To Midnight - Poem by Akujuobi Chijioke

I sat to see
The beauty in me;
As the colours of reason
Set sail in waterless seas.

On an almond nest
My emotions thirst,
For the side of me
That the world accepts.

In the shadow I lay
While my thoughts betray.
Will I wake a saint,
Or be a seed of prey?

Let me rest a bit
And bath my mind with sleep;
Then if I do awake
I'll give beauty a kiss.
