Night Spell

by Bo Crandall


My tale begins at the end of a road

Where few souls dare to tread.

And to this day it haunts me so

The images in my head


The woods loomed deep in the pitch.

The sky was without moon.

I did not know to where I'd come,

But found out far too soon.


I declare where I have I've been?

The things I've heard. The things I've seen.

The things I've touched, tasted and smelled.

The night I saw her cast her spell.


All alone in the fire’s light

I saw her leap and fall

Chanting words from world’s gone by

What spirits did she call?


She did not seem to see me there

As I watched her cast her spell

What happened next is so bizarre

In words I can barely tell


I declare where I have I've been?

The things I've heard. The things I've seen.

The things I've touched, tasted and smelled.

The night I saw her cast her spell.


Her raven hair seemed to fly about

Then cling tightly to her breasts

Her naked self would dance about

Never taking rests


As I watched I felt my soul

Descend into a lifeless trance

All the world then faded away

As I watched her chant and dance


I declare where I have I've been?

The things I've heard. The things I've seen.

The things I've touched, tasted and smelled.

The night I saw her cast her spell.


From behind the brush I was pulled

By a force no one could see

The next event that I recall

Was she was over me


I gazed into her eyes so deep

She looking from above

And into her green pools did I fall

So hopelessly in love


I declare where I have I've been?

The things I've heard. The things I've seen.

The things I've touched, tasted and smelled.

The night I saw her cast her spell.


Her smile was kind and hand so soft

Both gently stroked my soul

Her warm kiss place upon my lips

Seemed to make me whole


She quietly laid down next to me

And began to know me well

A sin far worse than all rest

That could send my soul to hell


The throws of love made me feel

As if ten men burst out inside

With names like Beast and Ruthlessness

Satan, Lust and Pride


For hours we had rolled around

Our passions ran so deep

I don’t recall the pass of time

Nor when I fell asleep


I declare where I have I've been?

The things I've heard. The things I've seen.

The things I've touched, tasted and smelled.

The night I saw her cast her spell.


When I awoke a new day had begun

And was all alone

I quickly gathered all my things

And sadly started home


I looked back to where I was

The place of my desires

No trace of her or her dance

No kettle and no fires


I declare where I have I've been?

The things I've heard. The things I've seen.

The things I've touched, tasted and smelled.

The night I saw her cast her spell.


That was many years ago

And I still wonder to myself

Was it all just a dream

Or a joke from some small elf


Or was her spell designed for me

To fall into her arms

To fulfill her evil needs

All coaxed by her sweet charms


I declare where I have I've been?

The things I've heard. The things I've seen.

The things I've touched, tasted and smelled.

The night I saw her cast her spell.
