Sigh At Midnight

Sighs At Midnight

cassiopeia’sblog.wordpress.com

hushed sighs fill the twilight
dead dark hours,softly they sing
still water over stone and rock
deep in the mindless part of night
when roams the soul and speaks
to darkness where light has no dominion

chromatic reflections in the mirror
muffled sounds and dim malformed configurations appear
a dark reality distorted,are they there
plaintive cries against the knocking come
ah,the mistress of mortal shapes prevails
as one upon one the forms comely acquiesce

    I read this piece several times as I kept trying to fully understand it and at the same time hoping I’d never do.

    Wow, amazing piece. Haunting yet soothing in a strange way. You’re very talented.

    Loved the lines:

    “chromatic reflections in the mirror
