I woke one night
To a frightening sight
Yet I was unafraid
An apparition, two party girls
I felt like I was about to be played
“Come out with us,
We won’t cause a fuss
We will just dance the night away!”
I said, “No. You both go
This is just a dream anyway.”
“Oh it’s no dream, touch our hands, you’ll see
We’ll fly and have fun all night!”
Tempted I was, just because
I needed the break, you see.
But flying apparitions would cause contradictions
Among my friends and family.
“I’d love to go, yet I have to say no
My peeps would freak out at me flying.
But thanks for the invite
Have yourself a cool flight
And thank you so much for trying.”
So frowning they flew
To haunt maybe you
What would you do if in my place?
Though I wanted to go, I had to say no
And as I lay back, tears streamed down my face.
