A Dark Night

It was a dark night with a full moon
I decide to go sit out on the porch
The dark lake was lit up by a torch
Feeling tired, hoping you are home soon

As the water starts to ripple in the breeze
I see a large creature emerge in the light
Scared, I can’t move, I am frozen in fright
I can barely breathe, as I start to wheeze

It looks long and huge, and black in color
Not really like a gator or any type of fish
I watch and pray it goes away soon, I wish
It swims closer to shore, and starts to hover

I quickly run inside and lock my door
Panic stricken, not sure what to do
I hear a car door; I hope and pray it’s you
I hear a helicopter, as I drop to the floor

I wake up to your kisses on my lips 
I am in my bed with your arms around me
I must have been dreaming, I smile with glee
I start to get out of bed as your hands grip

You say, I must have drunk way too much wine
I was passed out on the floor when you came home
I said I saw a huge creature, something scary, unknown
Yes, you tell me, it’s a secret experiment, our goldmine
