Exploded!

They were close by when the house exploded

certain somebody was within

the two teenagers ran without any thought

for their own well-being

the detached house was soon engulfed in fire

flames rapidly rising higher!

 

The heat so intense could only watch helplessly

in the distance sirens echoed

as neighbours slowly ventured out to observe

at that moment both saw

coming out of the ruins a woman unharmed

as if by magic charmed!

 

Backing away at this unbelievable encounter

this being came up to them

naked yet no sign of skin damage of any kind

stared with light blue eyes

afraid for their safety would both lives be taken

but they were mistaken!

 

Instantly becoming shrouded in a scaly cover

turned and walked away

faded until she had gone from sight both ran

unsure of what had happened

it seemed the house was a known gang base

those inside gone without a trace!

 

Neither teenager came forward as a witness

to afraid to say anything

who would believe their description anyway

but pondered the questions

who or what she was and from where came

surviving the explosion and flame?

 

More were to come each as baffling as the other!

 

What was going on?

That Smile

That smile will be with me forever

on the day it all went wrong

the two of us trying to be clever

our journey was too long

deciding to take a different trail

thus  must recount the tale!

 

That smile will be with me forever!

 

Desperate to try and save our marriage

after both drifting apart

had we passed that irreversible stage

our love was there a start

yet the tension high I drove far to fast

and our destinations cast!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Into a tree we rammed I was powerless

to avoid the collision

the anger had created this foolishness

shaping the final decision

my side was undamaged just shaken

realising I was mistaken!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Why had I been such a stubborn man

had shock awoken me

you the only one in my earthly plan

at first what I did not see

there hurt with that angelic smile

how bad I was in denial!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Somehow got a signal to call assistance

talking more than before

why now could we seem to be consistent

doing my best to reassure

that any problems we would transform

our love overcame any storm!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

As the rescue team arrived we tenderly kissed

such a magical moment

how such tenderness for so long I had missed

she had been to me sent

that smile I shall never forget or guilt fade

too late true feelings displayed!

 

She died from her injuries soon after!

That smile will remain with me forever!
