Poem: Alone at Midnight


Alone at midnight
Day gone
Everything a memory
It’s all yesterday
And I’m cold

Flurry of activity
Thoughts and ideas
Flurry of activity
And out
Into the night
They wave goodbyes
To separate lives
They all depart
Turn into a dream

When it’s all over
What now remains
The music has ended
The lights all wink out
And everything is tomorrow
While I stay
Like a ghost
I linger
Between yesterday
And tomorrow
In solitude
