The Cage!

The new owner had heard the cottage was haunted

thinking it was simply old wives tales

ignoring the stories and how cheap the auction price

surely buying a real bargain

born in the area had decided time to move back

certain this was the right track!


Passing the cottage knew there was a connection

she had been drawn to it

even had an unusual name being called the cage

once it had been a prison

here women accused of being witches were held

tortured and misery excelled!


Today many locals really felt spirits did remain

souls of the young tormented

footsteps on stairs shadows disturbing shapes

haunted this ancient cottage

after three years of anguish could stay no more

uncertain of what she saw!


Since then endless tenants had come and gone

driven out by unexplained events

even when a paranormal group came to stay

feeling disturbed some were pushed

many images caught on cameras and monitors

scratching from under the floors!


Yet even though afraid to live within its walls

could not be far away

standing at the gate always felt death was close

sure of some connection

flashbacks of being accused of witchcraft here

it was if she had become a seer!


The cottage remained empty no answers found

the images were much stronger

it was her the growing evil wanted to hound!

destiny would not wait much longer!
