Midnight Cocktail 

I drink a cocktail of moonlight

and my spirit is harmonised 

with the shadows and the whispers,
of the pallid waifs at twilight.


Intoxicated by starlight

my heart sparkles in its desire

ignited, the darkness guides me.

No fear, inhibitions swallowed.


Tripping through its luminous bow,

inebriated dancing

with silhouettes and laser beams

on a celestial dance floor.


The essence of the free party

in the afterglow of revelry,

hangs over in the ecstasy

and the lunacy of moonshine.
