Once upon a clouded night
Two lovers wondered in fright
She begged him please, it wasn't right
But he was sure, and he had a light
She was scared, but he had a light
Evil lurked through these woods
She could sense it, but they would
Continue walking, never talking
All the while he would be stalking
Watching with beady eyes, yellow of fireflies
And so he sat, in the trees
She begged him listen please
"Listen to the rustling leaves
Someone is in there waiting."
"Fairy tales" He said, "Stop debating."
On and on, the trail did wind
Then a clearing, they did find
"We'll sleep here for the night."
"Are you sure, we will we be all right?"
"Sure as sure, just end this fight."
To rest they then went, with merry dreams
Or at least that is what it seemed
For someone oblivious to the scheme
Someone cold, someone who was deeming
For a night to cause people screaming
Awoken in a panic-like state
Sweat dripped down a face irate
"Your right, I'm sorry, I was wrong!"
He did confess, but it wouldn't be long
The creature had been stirred, boy be gone
Without much hesitation
The girl took his invitation
Out the tent, she did wander
In her head, thoughts were pondered
"Where is this beast?" Heartbeat like thunder
She turned around quickly, only to face
An unforeseen challenge, and now a race
Faster and faster, like the tears on her face
Out of the woods in a flash, "I didn't lose!"
Her eyes went back to the woods, "Choose...?"
The beast was now agitated
Arrived there, not soon, but after
She had left him, now alone
On the ground wept the clone
But no longer did the moonlight shone
Claws returned and fur was shed
Finally back, in his own head
He found her, not far away
Crying since the dawn of day
"I missed you badly!" She did say
But he only grinned and kissed her brow
"It is alright my love, I'm here now."
Smiling, she looked up at him
But alas the moonlight, even so dim
Now shone down on him, once again
