Haunted Honeymoon


Stranded on the roadside
Bravely left her car
Had seen a lighted window
It didn’t seem too far
No signal on her phone
Not sure what to do
The rain began to fall
Soon she was soaked through

The young man was welcoming
Invited her inside
She asked to use his phone
“It’s broken” he replied
Handed her a towel
Told her to dry her hair
Then left her and returned
With something dry to wear

She changed in the bathroom
The dress was white and lace
When she went back out
A wide smile crossed his face
Dressed in his Sunday best
He invited her to eat
Walked her to the table
He was really quite sweet

They talked about the weather
He asked about her drive
Would they worry he asked her
When tonight she’d not arrive
She told him as long
As she was there next day
They would think she stopped to rest
With the weather been that way

After the meal
They talked for a while
Then he asked her to dance
“It’s been quite a while”
His strong farmers hands
Felt nice on her hips
As they swayed to the music
She searched out his lips
Not a word spoken
She was led to his bed
Covered in petals
Of roses so red
Such a tender lover
She’d not had before
Not one part of needs
Did he fail to explore

Woken by the knocking
The sun shining through
When she answered the police said
“We’ve been looking for you
We saw your car
Guessed you might be here
We can get you on your way
There’s nothing to fear”

She went to tell them
About the man and the night
But as she looked around
Saw the derelict sight
“No one has lived here
Since young Bill lost his bride
But sometimes the locals
See a light inside”

“The night of the wedding
Bill hit a tree
She died in his arms
Her head on his knee
He tried to go on
But he couldn’t forgive
And in the end he lost
Any will to live”

As she closed the door
She was sure she heard
A voice say her name
Maybe it was a bird
Then she felt his touch
And his breathe on her ear
“Thank you for my honeymoon night
My dear”
