Blame it on Midnight

To be loved by despair remains imperfect
those same aches, cuts and alarms
heal when redemption's hour chimes;
and laughing children scatter each
to their warm, safe, half lit homes.
The day forgotten, remembered no more.

To be loved by need fulfills only the
moment at hand, a hard candy on the tongue
dissolving into the dark corridors of elimination,
finally free to return to the dust from which
they came. Needs change.

Fill my cup with Saturday's sultry dark
and we'll paint on black velvet where
our love leaves the mark of our conjoining,
our mingling moments, our ferocious fire.
Sunday mornings crosswords and comics
are the dream, the afterglow of love
imperfectly drawn from an old well.

"Hey! Watch where you're going...
Step light on old toes..." (Bob Seger)

    Fav lines [a hard candy on the tongue dissolving into the dark corridors of elimination,] The last two lines did confuse me? Light & Love

    WOW! Ferocious fire sounds scary, it must be the alliteration. : D Now, seriously, Im not sure if it's just because lately I'm visiting your poetry more frequently or if I suddenly became a better reader or I don't know but ... your poems are so ooooo good : D You, Deborah, Rebecca, Carrie ... are improving your dexterity. I'm serious. I love this poem (the second stanza shines!) and I'm going to FAV it. Great work, Catie!!

    This is great free verse and based upon Bob Seger --one of my all time favorite singers and song writers. Great poem.....

    quite deep and nicely written Catie. your new one was apparently inspired by Seger, mine by U2. cool
