This is my comfort zone. The idea for this came from a wife who cheated and crushed her husband. He moved on but the guilt ridden woman was forever tormented by her heart.



Locked in the cellar
of a lighthouse by the sea
lives the ghost of a mistress
who once roamed free.
she hides in the shadows
and lurks under the stairs
throwing bolts of lightening,

beacons and flares.
The house begins to rumble
the windows rattle and shake,
but the house still stands strong
near the ocean by the lake.
The house is old and tarnished
withered from the rain,
the storms, the waves,
the heartache and pain.
But atop her house
at the end of the stairs
there shines a mighty beacon
on the horizon  it stares.
to signal out a message
for lost ships in the night
to bring them back to safety,
guided by its light.
But the mistress who onced lived here
protected by the light,

still grumbles under the stairway
no surrender in sight.
She threatens all who chance to tread
troubled waters from the sea,
sending out her message she cries,
steer clear of me.
When lost one night, in torent seas,
came a ship of the grandest hue,
guided by the glowing light
her sails cast high she flew,
straight past the lighthouse
to safety she was led
by the brightest beacon in the sky
to calmer seas she bed.
The mistress found her lighthouse cold
empty from within
as the ship came close and filled the light
with warmth and chagrin.
she scorned her fury with lightening bolts
and rumbled with the sky
sounds of screeching painful heartache
fell on the water as she cried.
But the lighthouse standing strong and tight
took everthing in stride,
protecting the mighty ship
resting peaceful by its side.
The mistress of the lighthouse
restless soul from within
waits alone under the stairs
for the next ship to come in.
She waits forever prisoner
for her heart is lost at sea
for love of a lighthouse
she will never again be free.
