Christmas Home Coming!

End of the first year of her university course

now it was Christmas holidays

excited to be going home to see mum and dad

her big sister would be there to

dad said he would pick her up from the station

filled with festive anticipation!

 

Tried to phone home that day but got no reply

getting on the train so worried

the normally quick trip slow in this demeanor

unable to comprehend a reason

she could see that there was nobody waiting

phoning her friend now debating!

 

A hug from her best mate glad to see somebody

they headed home in a car

approaching the road became aware of no lights

pulling up outside was fearful

of what she would find when opening the door

turning the key in the lock unsure!

 

Tried the light switch but there was no power

the street light gave some illumination

made their way to the cupboard in the hallway

where the fuse box was situated

a torch was on the top checking fuses were fine

the electric switched off by design!

 

With the house illuminated everything was tidy

so neat her mums handy work

as if it had been prepared for her home-coming

checked the bedrooms perfect

what was happening had thoughts of slaying

or kidnap nerves fraying!

 

Enquired with neighbours said they heard noises

went around knocked on the door

nobody replied then called the police concerned

but when they came all was quiet

now ready to tear out her hair fearing the worst

in her mind came a word cursed!

 

In the lounge the christmas tree stood in the corner

presents spread around the base

decorations lovingly placed cards hanging over string

just as she had waited to come and see

dad was a history teacher who enjoyed Egyptology

specialising in anthropology!

 

He had been on several archeological study trips

and brought back several artifacts

the thought of this made sense but was terrified

a smell of mould made them both

felt nauseous then she remembered the basement

were none of her family went!

 

But now there was no other choice it held the key

holding each other for comfort

through the entrance in the kitchen descended

the narrow creaky dusty stairs

uncertain of what would greet them down there

taking the guise of an ancient lair!

 

Having to use the torch there were large photos

of pyramids and artifacts

shelfs with real items placed neatly on long tables

the air had that mouldy odour

stifling hot and dusty made it hard to breathe

their calmness gone began to seethe!

 

There was  a strange atmosphere they had to go

as they did heard faint whimpering

aimed the torch there saw her mum and sister

petrified afraid to move a muscle

helping them up quickly left the weird basement

away from that sense of encasement!

 

In the warmth of her best friends car she spoke

of her husbands involvement

with artifacts being taken from ancient tombs

and ignoring the stern warnings

how several hooded figures seem to materialize

their bodies and minds did paralyze!

 

They were forced down the stairs to the cellar

were they took several items

and with the girl’s father went as they had come

leaving them traumatized

helpless they cried uncertain what to do next

leaving them all perplexed!

 

Not the Christmas Home Coming she expected!

The Signalman!

He never found out what happened that night! The Foureyed Poet.

Originally posted on The Foureyed Poet:

The signalman felt uneasy as he started his shift

it was an autumn evening.

Light was fading as he walked up the steps

and a feeling of coldness.

Everything was the same looking around

his own breathing the only sound.

Though it was his fifteenth year on the job

he enjoyed what he was doing.

There had been a few unexplained incidents

putting it down to boredom.

But no rational thinking would make sense

of the coming events.

After watching the eight twenty express pass

settled down for a cup of tea.

The phone connecting the boxes rang shrilly

usually meaning a problem.

Answering to check what was wrong no reply

he did wonder why?

The time period was the early fifties no mobiles

or any electronic equipment.

In an isolated spot some way from any contact

only reached by a narrow path.

He liked the peace and quiet here being…

Moment!

Malctg - The Foureyed Poet.:

The cruelty of man upon his fellow man is unacceptable!
The Foureyed Poet.

Originally posted on The Foureyed Poet:

That tender moment is still within Still

as the pain of parting was hard to take.

not knowing when our bodies would touch

in the long nights that had yet to be.

Bad dreams ran through my thoughts

would I ever touch or smell your being

off to war your orders had told you

flying with your comrades and crew.

Countless news reports and horror stories

had made us feel an internal dread.

forewarned of the dangers that lay ahead

in a country where there was bitterness.

A distant world that was far from me

isolated in an area of frightening hostility

where communication was greatly restricted

and far to many heinous images depicted.

When would that moment guide you back

how empty is the soul that I alone possess.

stabbing pains started to make me shake

a nagging voice then invaded my sensorium

As contact was suddenly lost with you today

two…

Knife Attack!

Malctg - The Foureyed Poet.:

You can never be certain of safety on the streets! The Foureyed Poet.

Originally posted on The Foureyed Poet:

The teenager stood seething anger in his eyes

with a knife gripped in his trembling hand.

it was not fear he felt that night but hatred

confronting a stranger in a drunken rage

then in one motion he plunged in the blade.

again into the youths chest blood sprayed!

The perpetrator of this vile and senseless act

smirked without emotion in his pitiless eyes.

still gripping the knife he just ran away

leaving an innocent young life dying.

as a group of people like ghouls starred

not one tried to help none of them cared!

Police in force then cordoned off the scene

as the victim was rushed to the hospital

any hope faded fast and sadly he died

soon flowers were being left at the site

where a pointless death transpired tonight!

According to statistics it is said violent crime

was rapidly on the decline

even one death leaves devastation behind

the tension has not…

Factory Conversion!

The factory used to be the largest employer

where steel was manufactured

close to the railway goods terminal for access

until the company went bust

left to decay stood derelict for years until sold

as a new chapter was to unfold!

 

An organisation had a unique purpose for its use

to turn it into a horror attraction

the works already had history of unnatural deaths

during its productive years

as witnesses told of many unpleasant confrontations

with strangers and no explanations!

 

Injured burnt and dressed in old-fashioned clothing

even police had been called

to deal with obnoxious suicides inside and on the line

running parallel to broken fencing

where the homeless and drug users had taken over

what evil remained here to smolder?

 

The obsolete factory conversion was soon completed

large numbers 666 above the name

the Horror Factory ready to draw in waiting crowds

to be frightened out of their wits

as actors portrayed monsters and the devil himself

surely not good for your mental health!

 

But being a location with a nasty oppressive history

the dead could certainly not rest

some of the cast working here were devil worshipers

and held black masses within

but were sacked but not before more evil did unleash

causing phenomena to increase!

 

Visitors often scared by more than the performers

seeing those still not at rest

evil entities waiting to posses the unsuspecting

passing through this attraction

voices and noises echoed around those present

for many were evanescent!

 

But others the effects were much longer lasting

or fatal to those who were weak

images pleading and vile words there recorded

left staff and visitors believers

dreading what may happen to any of them next

leaving all who entered perplexed!

 

Like a ghoulish monument there it stands today!

Rods Friend Or Foe?

Malctg - The Foureyed Poet.:

What are these objects all around us? The Foureyed Poet.

Originally posted on The Foureyed Poet:

What is around us that cannot be seen

as our sight has such a limited vision.

We are arrogant to think we are alone

a concept difficult for us to comprehend.

Do life forms called Rods occupy space

here on earth is it also their home base?

Moving rapidly we  are unable to see them

only on camcorders and fast shuttered cameras

Are they of this earth or of alien origin

it is claimed they can fly in outer space

In and out of tornadoes even storm clouds

freely in the forests and amongst the crowds.

Some reckon they are merely birds or insects

though the shapes plainly do not match.

None to date have actually been caught

nor communication between us made.

The origins of these beings is an enigma

mystical and elusive raising that mystery bar

What forces encompass us that we do not know

are they real if yes are they friend or foe?

Daniel’s Friend

Malctg - The Foureyed Poet.:

A short children’s story written just for fun. The Foureyed Poet.

Originally posted on The Foureyed Poet:

Daniel was a very excited little boy because it was Christmas eve. Mummy and Daddy had just tucked him up in his cosy bed. But like all children at Christmas, he just couldn’t sleep. And thought to himself I’m going to stay awake and see Father Christmas. Daniel also thought of all the toys he had asked Father Christmas for, a garage with some cars, a batman costume, a watch and some games. But what he really wanted was a shiny red pedal car. Then as he saw himself in his own car Daniel’s eyes became heavy and soon he was fast asleep.

As Daniel slept Father Christmas came quietly into his room and left all the presents that he had asked for at the bottom of his bed. When leaving Father Christmas tapped the pedal car and said ” Now remember, look after Daniel”. He smiled and in seconds…

Was There A Man?

Malctg - The Foureyed Poet.:

Where is religion taking mankind? The Foureyed Poet.

Originally posted on The Foureyed Poet:

Was there a man sent by an all mighty god

to save and guide humanity

his own son here in a harsh roman period

talking to thousands of followers

creating miracles and healing the sick

was this real or just a clever trick?

It is not for me to make any conclusions

millions believe in their religions

though used as a reason for terrible violence

no way can I judge just quietly observe

can it now unite every people and bond

comfort those who feel wronged!

What I do not understand is the wealth

when there are many with nothing

where is that humility are we not all equal

to share the fruits amongst the flock

mother earth is our church not a dwelling

this thought I find more compelling!

As this season comes to that special day

peace and unity for this I shall pray!

Terraced House!

Malctg - The Foureyed Poet.:

The couple never expected a ghost in their new house!
The Foureyed Poet,

Originally posted on The Foureyed Poet:

The couple moved into a new terraced house

one of only four erected

built in the gardens of a run down building

soon after the woman gave birth

a healthy son was born all had gone very well

nothing out of the ordinary to tell.

Both were doctors living in eastern Europe

living far from family homes

one morning the mum laid on her bed

her son in a cot close by

she began to feel hot a pressure on top

not able to make it stop.

Unable to move as pain in her head grew

like an entity trying to get in

her vision faded she could only see static

like a television with no signal!

from relaxing on the bed and feeling fine

that pain moved up the spine!

As it began the sensation suddenly went

and her temperature dropped

able to move she got up all seemed…

Android!

The newspaper had an advert for a dance

decided to go drinks were free

the venue a smart hotel needed some fun

anybody welcome it said

on posters spread all around the entrance

into the dance I did advance.

 

But there was no mention of the occasion

for the lavish open  party

there were a lot of people within the lobby

waiting excitedly to get inside

surprised at the number of security staff

no smiles certainly not a laugh.

 

They all had the same appearance very odd

food was a laid out in a buffet

the serving staff were all beautiful women

but again each was a carbon copy

unsettled what was happening I wondered

coming in here had I blundered!

 

The evening progressed it become surreal

as most of those dancing

seemed emotionless but not everybody

as an attractive female

ask me on the floor never stopped talking

how I wanted to get walking!

 

Then said she was part of the research team

and this was their launch day

after that we kissed never asked anymore

thought this was a good night

until the band went quiet and a suited man

spoke of his great plan!

 

To create androids to be like human beings

and formed in their image

he was proud and delighted upon this eve

to introduce his perfect creations

as if by a silent cue the majority obeyed

standing below the stage!

 

Realising these seemingly too perfect people

were robots before my eyes

the dozen I assumed on either side of me

were some of the creators

all around the security circled the room

sensing deep feelings of doom!

 

The name of the company emblazoned

below the impressive podium

global robotics electronics corporation

there had to be countless more

who had allowed this lunacy be done

and humans androids overrun!

 

Warnings repeatedly given of creating

artificial intelligence that would

become superior overtaking our brains

in knowledge speed ability

with no conscience fear of death or rest

and human life dispossessed!

 

For the first time I realised this was now

not coming in the future

as the abhorrence began to be absorbed

the music started again

as if nothing was wrong so quietly I left

the folly of mankind left me bereft!

 

A year later day the first android was began!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
