Midnight

Midnight
Ashley Kagaoan

magic at midnight
and guiding stars led
a stroll in the ocean’s mist.
he grabbed her hand.
her smile
was pure and reckless.
his grin
satisfied with pride.
together,
they learned
what love felt like…

it felt like
a soft touch and
a natural walk,
a smile and a chill,
a gaze in the dark,
anxiously awaiting a kiss.
turning cartwheels in sand,
running naked,
kicking cold water,
lying down
gazing at stars.
wondering?
knowing?
there’s someone watching,
listening,
for a secret
they would never tell
but always try to.
a magical space,
an intersection of perfection,
the perfect moment,
the perfect action,
perfect beings
frozen in time.

It felt like…
something.
they always knew
yet lost
every morning.
they would always be
consumed with eternity
hopelessly trying
to recreate
midnight
again and again,
for forever.
