Witness To A Faerytale
Author: Eryemil


The clock struck midnight,
And voices could be heard,
Throughout the moonlit garden.

Eyes blind with lust and feral hunger.
Stalking his prey, the furtive hunter,
Walking through the air,
Slowly sinking under.

To the glowing damp earth,
He swiftly plunders,
Howling at the couple,
His daunting voice like thunder.

One of the boys moves to the front,
Shielding his lover, his gaze,
Fixed on the creature,
firm yet yonder.

"I beg, do as you please with me,
But let him be."

The faerytale-born being,
Couldn't help but smile,
Thoughts ran through his mind,
But he didn't let them wander.

‘Love worth giving your life for,
Is on these times a wonder’,
The youths too afraid to move,
As he astounded pondered.

He raised his head,
And talked to them with kindness,
His voice as of an elder,
Yet his face much younger.

"My children, your love is rare this days,
And it has saved you lives.
I have lived long,
And rarely been surprised.

You were willing to make,
The ultimate sacrifice,
And for that amazing deed,
Your lives are spared,
And that is your reward."

With that he walked away,
Promptly to leave,
But from a safe distance watched,
As they cried in relief.

‘The night is young,
And I still must find new prey,
My blessings be with them,
True love their savior’

And with memories of the one,
He loved so long ago,
he seemed to vanish from sight,
engulfed in his own woe.
