The Midnight Poet Poem by Richard Wlodarski

The Midnight Poet

Rating: 5.0

The midnight poet
Roams deserted streets
In the midnight hour
Searching for lonely souls

Stealing a minute or two
To penetrate the heart
The howling moon
Now beckoning

Monstrous black walls
Stained with dried blood
And graffiti
Art for poet

Moon's searchlight
Casting shadows
Spirits unknown
Souls deserting

Stealthily he walks
Them to their grave home
And shows the secret

Magnificent imagery, Richard. I had flashes of Midnight Cowboy. Brilliant work.

The comment vanished just as mysteriously as the midnight poet. It's been happening to me a lot on PH. But I persevere. It's well worth it! Sylvia, thank you for your heart felt comment!
