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!

Across Country!

At the time it seemed to us a brilliant idea

to drive across country

my girlfriend and I an adventure together

a week just the two of us

but it all changed at the mountain range

then things became strange!

 

Through winding roads trees became dense

as we searched for a motel

but the navigation signal had become poor

the weather deteriorated

with no choice but to pull off the empty road

as a tall object across it strode!

 

This we had not expected to see just up ahead

what human could be out here

in such an icy raging storm could it be a bear

that thought made us perturbed

huddled together knowing we must proceed

this was our pressing need!

 

The tyres started spinning as we pulled out

with its leave covered surface

panic began to over ride our calm persona

sounds neither had heard before

then a huge shape approached our position

getting away the only mission!

 

Just making the road as a large human face

peered through the front screen

as claws slashed the vehicles side with force

which nearly made me spin

thankfully keeping straight foot to the floor

never felt so scared ever before!

 

Driving until the gas had completely drained

we coasted downa  steep incline

as a serene lake and a hotel came into view

having to abandon the vehicle

seeing the slashed body panels as we walked

still it  felt we were being stalked!

 

Later speaking to the receptionist on desk duty

now in a fit state to speak

they said many others had similar stories to tell

and it fitted with the legends

of Big Foot the name the beast was fondly known

but violence never before was shown!

 

Thankfully the rest of the journey was uneventful

and we were alive the story to tell!
