Join in with the 100 Word Wednesday challenge here:
She materialised from dusky shadows,
A look of promise in her eyes,
Sparkling light enhanced her beauty,
I was taken by surprise.
‘Come with me’ she whispered urgently,
‘Take my hand, hold on tight.
Don’t let go,’ and then together
We disappeared into the night.
Next day the beach was found deserted,
Nothing to suggest I’d lain
Under the stars and velvet canopy,
As the tide had claimed the shore again.
Had I not gone, I’d have been a victim
Bones picked clean by the Gulls of Death,
She had saved me from disaster
Before I’d taken my final breath.
