the midnight girl


Poem Commentary

I just woke up and wrote this at 330am.

the midnight girl


i imagine the midnight girl
scratching down her urgent verse
realizing that
they haven't figured it out yet 
feeling as though it's getting worse

the diction in her diaries
such text messages from her ovaries
speaks of such fists

her screams are breaking all of this glass
yet she still dances on the pieces 
taking the hit for future nieces

i know still that you are strong
and they've known it all along 
the darker and larger bumps in the night
will gnash and grind their teeth
at the things they are afraid of

the midnight girl

I am amazed at times at just how you emote the inner emotions of Woman....whether she's scorned ….angry....hurt or loved/unloved....your words ring true to it all....I'm sure more than many can relate.....thanks for that....Cher



thank you so much!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
