Be Careful, There's No Sun Out Tonight

The midnight road of dust and dark

Crawls into space, alone

While trees and other unseen beings

Watch from the roadside home

The headlights shine, two swords of light

Cut through the misty night

Two eyes shine from the depths

Of a blackened, hooded fright

SCREECH! the tires scream and flee

Into the flashing underbrush

Away from that haunting gaze

The silent phantom's image crushed

Breathing hard, unbelieving

What was seen? A trick, a dream?

Shaking head, look out the window

"Are you alright?" comes a stranger's plea

"I'm fine" reassurance comes

Before you pull into reverse

The stranger waves, and walks away

Into the lightless universe

The midnight road of dusk and dark

And a stranger's passing wave

A stranger's wink, demonic eyes

Glinting from the day's grave

Where trees and unseen beings

Are never far from home
