She met him in the morning,
she stayed with him that night,
a pretty boy with eyes of blue,
who made her thoughts take flight,
who made her thoughts take flight, he did,
who made her thoughts take flight,
a pretty boy with eyes of blue
who made her thoughts take flight.

He met her by the shoreline,
her hair was copper red,
a lonely woman with eyes of green
to take home to his bed,
to take home to his bed, she was,
to take home to his bed,
a lonely woman with eyes of green
to take home to his bed.

The seagulls flew around them,
as they walked along the shore,
and they talked of many things that day
they would talk about no more,
they would talk about no more, they would,
they would talk about no more,
and they would talk of many things that day
they would talk about no more.

The wind blew in the morning,
the clouds blew in by day,
the waters rose by midnight,
and swept them both away,
and swept them both away, it did,
and swept them both away,
the waters rose up by midnight
and swept them both away.

O love is a lovely thing to find,
may it bring you joy one day,
but check the weather before you go,
or it might carry you away,
or it might  carry you away, o yes,
or it might  carry you away,
but check the weather before you go,
or it might carry you away.
a twisted version of the cautionary love ballad. This is what happens when I write poetry too late at night....

This is a bit eerie and with a hint of creepiness. I suppose though, when you're writing at night, weird things do happen. Inspiration is different. Usually if I'm in a dark mood, it's usually when I'm creeped out by something. I really enjoyed reading it, even though I'm not a big fan of eerie fics or creepy ones. I love the ending though!

When I was writing it, I didn't expect it to end that way either....funny what we discover when we write sometimes! Glad you liked!
