A Delicate Midnight

Places in my mind

I routinely go

bathed in nerves

and moonlight

my breath held

in midnight exchanges


Can I keep you?

concealed in a song

a moment solidified

wide eyed and wanting

like a photograph, framed

a memento of lost youth


Can I keep you?

under that full moon

despite the moment being

fleeting and delicate

it’s like glass, stained

a relic of midnights past
