After Midnight

After Midnight short poem

Photo by blondinrikard

Eerie sounds all around deep in
the heart of the graveyard AFTER
MIDNIGHT, shadows appear and
seem to move, heartbeat like
thunder in a state of fright, they’re
coming from all around, I try to
scream but can’t make a sound
wickedness and evil gnawing
away every bit of life well don’t
you know the graveyard is no
place to be AFTER MIDNIGHT…
The dead are known to come
back to life, AFTER MIDNIGHT
you better stay inside and keep
your doors and windows locked
up real tight, AFTER MIDNIGHT
you better pray to GOD for the
love of your life, AFTER MIDNIGHT
the bewitching hour begins…
AFTER MIDNIGHT and the nightmare
begins again…
AFTER MIDNIGHT!

After the rain Luminescent clouds made creative shapes, Appearing out of nowhere, A magnificent double rainbow, Natures twins, Sent from the Heavens, Nature’s finest work, The colors were bright and in every shade you can imagine, Shining high in the

That night, Together we ate the forbidden fruit, With such a ravenous appetite, No sorrow, no regrets, Just smiles, Holding each other tightly, Like we’ll never let go, No one else mattered, Only we did. Day by day, Life seemed
