If the cry of midnight is but
A shadow in your rearview mirror, slowly
Tiptoeing across a distant horizon
Folding itself between the stars

If hazy figures fill your mind, if they
Dance on the windshield of your thoughts
Waltzing to tunes of hope and lust
On a road engraved with moonlit scars

And if dawn rears its ugly head
Over your weary, bloodshot eyes, you
Are possessed by love or loneliness
Both casualties of an equal kind.

@Nated315 It's a contemporary sonnet not a Shakespearean sonnet. Contemporary sonnets don't need a rhyme scene. Thanks for the input though.
