Midnight Madness (Structured Poem In Three Parts) - Poem by Cynthia Aluning

Sharp-fanged beasts in the middle of the night
The moment dark envelopes the pale sky
Shadows often seen lurking in the twilight
In midnight blue, waiting for its prey

The moment dark envelopes the pale sky
On midnight madness, the devil has its way
In midnight blue, waiting for its prey
Luring the innocents, hell is a step away

In midnight madness, the devil has its way
A short taste of heaven, in an enticing stare
Luring the innocents, hell is a step away
Vigilance! ought not to be caught unaware!

A short taste of heaven, in an enticing stare
Sharp-fanged beasts in the middle of the night
Vigilance! ought not to be caught unaware!
Shadows often seen lurking in the twilight


MIDNIGHT MADNESS II
(a Rondelet)

no hope in dope
no way to be a living dead
no hope in dope
you don't escape reality
but face your wildest fear instead
life in drugs is a clear deathbed
no hope in dope


MIDNIGHT MADNESS III
(a Rondeau)

The evil that men do
On appointed midnight blue
Trapped from the sweetest bait
Innocent lives suffered the ill fate
Dreams they lived could never come true

Heartless souls, to the devil they're glued
In their madness, no one has a clue
In ardent prayer to keep the faith
The evil that men do

Officers in the night we cannot cling onto
Law enforcers-law breakers, accomplices too
Druglords, criminals like vampires of the night
Even our own selves in choosing what's not right
Madness, left and right, facing us hereto
The evil than men do
