Witching Hour Longing

Laying in uneasy slumber,

she tosses and turns in a far too large bed,

alone.

~

One more night of many she awaits,

for the arrival of dawn,

when loneliness’ ghosts flee from light.

~

They dare not haunt when garish sun rises,

peeking sleepily over the horizon,

percolating coffee awakening a weary heart.

~

Between paying bills and feeding the baby,

daylight’s busy rhythm soothes midnight’s longings,

deep…deep…in her soul they are always present.

~

To reignite her inner magic kept alive,

in the dreams dancing around her tired head,

a spell cast by a dream weaver’s enchantment.

    1. The witching hour is a time of night when supernatural things are most active. Some believe that supernatural activity peaks around midnight or even 3 am. I was using the witching hour more as a metaphor for feeling haunted by loneliness.
