Danger, Danger

Danger, danger
Lurking in the dark
Standing there
Waiting, watching for the time
When the mind
Isn’t paying attention
Isn’t expecting anything
Like this awful crime
Danger, danger
Make it so it isn’t mine.

Did You See The Night?

February 25, 2013

Lucy ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Did you see the night?
Did you see it as it crept
Atop of daylight
Covering each day
With darkness of the night?

Did you see the night?
Morose and sad
Bleeding sympathy to the mad
Whispering night floating through
Corridors filled with sounds
Made to scare, do beware.

Did you see the night?
As it gently held lost souls
Til daylight could unfold
Washing ‘way cold misery
Never to be told.

Yes, I have seen the night
Soft and full of promise
Stars twinkling
In bright nightlight
I did, I did see the night.

Danger! Beware!

February 6, 2013

Danger! Beware!
Close by is a snare
Ready to catch you
Ready to draw you in
To make a life filled
With sadness and chagrin.

Please be aware
Please don’t go or dwell there
Your life is worth more
A thousand times more
This I must share
I really do care.

Danger! Beware!
