The Fourth of July

4th of July

 
Lights in the night sky
Colors float so high
Raining in hues
Red, white, and blue
Victory is our day
We have come here to play
Music and marching bands
We raise our clapping hands
Celebrate the 4th of July
Let the colorful lights fly high

DANCE BENEATH THE LIGHTS

Source:

 

 

Dance beneath the bright lights,

Past the lifelike statues,

Figures entombed in glass,

As the dance floor grows bigger.

The music quickens its beat.

Couples twirl in circles.

The clock strikes midnight.

Let the games begin.

CASTLE IN THE SKY

 

 

CASTLE IN THE SKY

The castle in the sky,
Oh my, oh my, oh my.
I want to go there.
Let free my long hair.
Water flows by my feet,
Such a miraculous feat.
A violin at my feet, 
But the water appears deep.
As it parts for me.
I walk through the sea.
The castle in the sky.
Oh my, oh my, oh my.

A WORLD OF DARKNESS

Source:

 

 

Welcome to our world.

Our haven from light.

A world of darkness.

We’re hidden from sight.

 

Dance with us tonight.

Come with us and play.

Music soothes the soul.

Dawn won’t have its say.

 

Lift your demon souls.

Become one with us.

Spread your wings for flight.

Become one of us.

CRYSTAL CHANDELIER

CRYSTAL CHANDELIER

Crystal chandelier of mine.
I love your sparkle and shine.
You bring back memories long gone
when life hadn’t been so far gone.
Remember the parties we used to host?
Fancy guests arriving from coast to coast.
Music and laughter were the rules of the day.
But now all that is left are the bills to pay.

LOVE ME

 

 

“Love me,”

the sign calls in the night.

“Come inside,”

the open door suggests.

“Pull up a chair,”

the seat shifts to the side.

I sit and wait.

Soft strains of music

waft through the room.

The door to the kitchen opens.

“Hello, my darling,”

the man says with a wink.

My mouth drops open.

He walks closer.

The music quickens its pace.

“What is this?”

I ask.

Handsome in a suit and tie,

he drops onto one knee.

In his right hand, a black box.

My hands cover my mouth.

He offers the box.

I take it with trembling fingers.

Inside, sits a diamond ring.

I stare into my love’s eyes.

He quirks an eyebrow.

I nod my head.

No words are needed.

He places the ring on my finger.

I’m in his arms.

Where I will remain

for the rest of my life.
