Lady In The Dark

It was two in the morning
and she was walking
or trying

But we ending up running.

We were not far from the Thirsty Scholar
it felt good to hold her
in my arms

We held tight
maybe cried

She was so beautiful
and tall

And too soon.
The Lady in the Dark
said goodbye at Dawn

So he left, tired.
And had trouble
operating the door

With a promise he would return
driving off
he didn't even notice the hours

Secretly disappointed
he figured out the latch
