A Night Time Stroll

A Night Time Stroll

A Night Time Stroll

A Night Time Stroll

In honor of a night time stroll

I won’t let you down; you should say no more!

Here, take my hand.  Let’s walk out this door

to be young again, like we did before…



The air will be warm, a balmy night

We’ll grab beers to go and a smoke to light

As we make our way down an empty street

moon light, flood light, crickets on repeat



At the end right there an ancient house stands

old as can be and many times changed hands

I dare you, you dare me:  should we go inside?

But we both know we will, we’ve nothing to hide



It’s a sinister place, though, and shadowy too

you win some, you lose some – and this place was through

We make it as far as the front drawing room

creaking and cracking; apprehension-filled gloom



Spiraled stairs wind their way to where no one should stay

dusty spirals looming in historic disarray

we don’t dare ascend as the floors may give way

our hearts beating faster; shadows tremble and sway



A moment to kiss, take a swig and a smoke

the excitement we share from our spooky little joke

We keep quiet for reasons we don’t even know

it was fun while it lasted, but it’s time to go!



A blood moon is calling, a lunar rip tide

Hold my hand, hold on tight – an excitement filled ride!

Ride the waves with me, kiss the stars

the night time is ours!



Be my scary little darling; my night time delight

May the morning never come, make it last all night

We want to live in it, breathe it in

You make everything all right.

    Well bust my ebony feathers. If this isn’t right up my tree than I don’t know what.
    I hear the creaking. I see the spiral dust. I know the dare of bein’ there. I feel only too well the gloom.
    And I do know even better the stroll and swoon under just such a midnight moon.
    Yes indeed this is darkly visual and romantically beautiful. A Keeper.

    Well I’m not surprised at all with this MA7 as soon as I sat down by my campfire it warmed me more than those ever did, it filled me of a dark wonderment than a flask full of whiskey could.!!
    Your words and placement hooked me in like a giant snapper.!!
    A bow down with hat off and say " an honour indeed"
    Brilliant !!!

      How happy it makes me to know that you’ve been warmed AND filled with a “dark wonderment” – very nice. This is what I could only hope to do! So glad you enjoyed it, wonderwall!
