Beautiful Stranger


MOON (Photo credit: Nick. K.)

Beautiful stranger
Under this opalescent moon
Don’t go away so soon, so soon
Beautiful stranger
With pale icy skin
Don’t leave me now
As this night’s drawing in
Don’t wait too long
For such games to begin

Beautiful stranger
Teeth so sharp and white
See how you stalk and see how you bite
Beautiful stranger
Breath lost on a sigh
Don’t turn away now
Don’t say goodbye
Can’t you see I’m waiting
Just waiting to die?

Beautiful stranger
I languish and I yield
Drunken perfection, I drink your appeal
Beautiful stranger
Here in the park
I’ll be your friend now
Welcome the dark
Let me sail away now
Let us embark

Beautiful stranger
Blood red you sigh
Can’t you see I’m waiting
Just waiting to die?
