A Halloween Tale…

Key 

Let me tell you a story of a room with no view,  
the windows are boarded, it’s door is locked too
no way can you enter this dark scary place,
as a man so alone wants to see no-ones face.PhotobucketFor many long years he’s lived locked inside
this room with no view, this place he can hide
deathless, seemingly immortal, he waits in vain
for his one true love, and it’s driven him insane
PhotobucketShe left him heartbroken, no backward glance
She left him without pity, no second chance
Little did she know, he knew where she’d gone
now he wants vengeance as her only child lives on
Photobucket
This child has grown, now a young lady of means
she bought the ‘empty’ house , totally unseen
She was excitedly viewing it from top to bottom
BUT one door was locked,  a lost key forgotten
PhotobucketHe waited for his chance to catch her alone
some friend had been there, now they’d gone,
As he heard her footsteps outside his room,
he whispered silently, “You’ll be with me soon”
PhotobucketI know nothing  more of this unhappy tale
but the neglected house is again up ‘For sale’
Mayhap the Dark Room is still locked away
but could there be two who inhabit it today?
