nocturne

Metal hearts

as the night draws in
I think about
one of the few people
I can cry with
or rage
while
the dark music of
your northern home
I never went to
plays
and
in dark-blue eyes
you watched
once
as I wasted away
staring
at my
own
reflection
but you told me
today
to invert the picture
and see my own strength
something to think about
as the night draws in

 

 

Today’s GloPoWriMo prompt was to write a nocturne. In music, a nocturne is a composition meant to be played at night, usually for piano, and with a tender and melancholy sort of sound. Your nocturne should aim to translate this sensibility into poetic form!
