Spoken Poetry Trial – Raining After Midnight

So after talking with a friend of mine, I thought I’d try out the idea of recording a reading of one of my poems. This poem is from my upcoming anthology “Black Summer”. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Raining After Midnight – Christopher Ferguson

Raining After Midnight

I’m sleeping after midnight 
And it’s raining in my dreams 
Through granite fog I’m wading 
But I cannot reach the seams 
Pain courses though my temples 
I feel the sea solidify 
All I want is happiness 
But I know that happiness is a lie

    ~Christopher Ferguson

Shameless Plug: If you've enjoyed this poem, or other ones I've posted recently, feel free to check out my Gumroad or Amazon sellers page if you'd like to get either of my recent anthologies "Red Winter" or Blue Autumn".
