Midnight: A Poem


Erin is a writer and content creator from Georgia, United States. She loves coffee, books, and puppies.

I lie awake thinking of all I have and have not done,

Heavy under the weight of what I let myself become,

Though the shadows cover me, I still find peace in the quiet,

Now I have time to untangle every thought in private,

Loneliness creeps in, creating dissonance with my natural state of reserve,

Then I remember You are always here, even if it can't be observed,

Your presence greets me when I feel the pains of regret,

And darkness doesn't overcome what the light has eclipsed,

And sometimes a winding road is straighter than a linear path,

Learning through hardships and the patience that I lack,

Though hope is not always seen clearly through obstacles I dread,

It still whispers in the quiet, calling me rest my wearied head.
