There's A Stranger Out Tonight
Author: KitKatrina


There's a stranger out tonight,
It sure seems he wants to fight,
I can tell it in his eyes,
Despite all of his lies,
He wants to get you and me,
But he's blind he cannot see,
We are hiding from the beast,
For tonight he will not feast,
You can search every street,
But strangers are who you'll meet,
You will not find me there,
And if you did I'd give you a scare,
For I am lurking in the dark,
I gave you a head start,
I let you cheat but I won,
Because the fights not begun,
If the fight doesn't begin,
Then you lost and I win,
I think I'm going to score,
So walk yourself on out the door,
You are truly a beast,
If that at the least,
You are lower than words can say,
I am in dismay,
Why are you so rude to me?
Why can't you just let me be?
Don't play these little childish games,
They make you look so vain,
Get over yourself and get over me,
For I will always and forever let you be!

"The Button" evry one has a button.


Every body has a button that we try not to push, sounds like this guy was jumping up and down on yours. However, unless he is deaf, I think you made your poetic point.

Enjoyed it.

I agree with Martin! Sounds like a poem only known to be written through experience. Nice work, very good detail!
