Love At Midnight

Written for:  Poetics Aside 2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 2
For today’s prompt, write a darkest hour poem. Some people may think of midnight or the witching hour. Still others may picture those moments right before the sun starts gradually lighting up the sky. But the darkest hour could also be a moment in time that is psychological, metaphorical, or some-other-kind-of-cal. And remember the poem doesn’t have to be directly about your idea of the darkest hour; it could be set in it or refer to it.

Any time of day is right for making love.
Under silken shawl of midnight,
add secrecy, danger, white heat of passion,
where red or black lace enhances lust.

Under silken shawl of midnight,
I feel your body as a cloak–we are one.
Add secrecy, danger, white heat of passion.
Making love is lustrous under silver stars.

Your body presses mine, silhouette on wall.
I feel your body as a cloak–we are one.
Night without end, only ones on earth.
Making love is lustrous under silver stars.

I feel your body as a cloak–we are one.
Fortunate are we in this space of no time.
Night without end, only ones on earth.
Still, any time of day is right for making love.
