 Eerie Night...


The night was so
cold and eerie
that we were certain that something
wicked hovered in the air around us.
The icy feel of death and doom
lingered everywhere.

As the wind
howled and moaned
we feared that something
dire would happen.
Soon, the terror had taken up
residence in every corner
of our humble abode.

We stoked the fire until it raged
in defense of the darkness.
Though the castle was ablaze,
we still couldn't shake the
overwhelming feeling of deathly darkness.

I took a peek inside my crystal ball,
only to find that there were
many more nights like this ahead.

Upon learning this,
you and I rejoiced,
because we wouldn't have
it any other way.
There's nothing better than
cuddling up together
when the wind rages,
when there's darkness all around.
The only warmth and light
I need is that of
your dear love forevermore.

"Eerie Night," written and designed by Bobette Bryan, 2000
