The Downhearted Ritual

poem by: The Wave Poet
Written on Feb 13, 2018

Midnight comes,

The hour for foolish texts

The hour when normal people say

Goodbye

 

One in the morning

That time for you to finish the work you’ve been

Avoiding cause lately

You’ve been avoiding every single responsibility you have

 

Two in the morning

The time when your demons come out

Curious

To play and dance

 

Three in the morning

The time when your eyes downswing a few

Salty oceans

Of gloominess, asking for the end

 

Four in the morning

The time you enumerate everything you

Hate about yourself

Rage emerges from the depth

 

Five in the morning

The time of night your energies finally

                                                  Drop

And spine-chilling dreams come out

 

Six in the morning

Fake smiles and

Sleepy eyes

Say their first hello wishing for the last goodbye
