Midnight Spotify

An acoustic guitar
acompanied by a poetic voice
emits folk storytelling
of wayward love
in an open filed of tall grass
by the lily pond

it’s mistaken for
a haunting ghost weeping
at dusk
all through the night

if you pay attention
you will see the shadow of loss
in fitful moonlight
mourning for his lover
over the opaque reflection
of the lily pond

you pay attention
