NaPoWriMo : Day 17- The Night’s My Refuge

National Poetry Writing Challenge Day 17 to write a Nocturne. A nocturne is a composition to be played at night, usually for piano, with a tender, melancholy sort of sound. The nocturne should be able to translate this sensibility to poetic form.

My heart weighs a ton, the battle’s won,

The night is long, I await the sun,

I know not what tidings, ‘morrow shall bring,

Melancholy engulfs, the enemy crushed, yet my heart’s lost it’s zing…

 

The air is still, the road deserted,

My mind a frenzy, my thoughts distorted,

My peace threatened, I cannot breathe,

A longing deep, brews within and vows to seethe…

 

I rest my throbbing head, a forlorn tear escapes,

The moonlight pale, thro’ the skylight, gapes,

Shattering the darkness, a beam beholds,

And that one moment, a secret unfolds…

 

A gentle breeze blows, strokes me tenderly,

A night owl hoots, ” You cannot be lonely”,

I feel it’s presence, I see it’s shadow on the slab,

“The moon, the stars, yours to grab”.

 

“Stretch your hand and take your share”,

“Joys are yours, sorrows not yours to bare”,

“Listen to the music of the night, it’s soft, soothing melody”,

“My pretty, the night is long, rest awhile, bow not to life’s malady”.
