Meet Me at Midnight (A Poem for Day Two of PAD)

I am participating in the November PAD Challenge, but I am not posting my poems everyday on my blog. 

For today, though, my poem is below.

Here is the prompt for Day 2For 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.

Why Did We Wait?

Meet Me at Midnight

Waited all day,
every day,
for two or three
decades
for your
summons
to join you
in an exciting
escapade.

Today
was the day,
invitation
arrived,
only it
was for
your burial,
you’re
no longer
alive.
