The Alien Beast!

The young couple had saved for this holiday

to a sparsely populated country.

Arriving safely they settled in the small hotel

their room had a superb view.

Three weeks of bliss from works high tension

they had no intention to mention.

 

They heard of a local man who had been attacked

by an unidentified creature.

It was not the first event in this isolated area

stories existed of  a monster!

Roaming the mountainsides wooded terrain

covered in mist after frequent rain.

 

Only farmers with land there would venture in

often finding livestock dead!

Their throats ripped out and drained of blood

superstition and fear ruled here.

Humans had gone missing it had been reported

many experts had been consulted.

 

Intrigued and fool hardy thinking this a laugh

to venture within on their own.

Not heeding warnings setting off one morning

unsuitably clothed and no guide.

Because everybody was scared of the creature

to them a major feature!

 

Still they went in search of this phantom beast

from a hot day into the damp mist.

Trekking on not realising they were lost

thinking it was just a tale.

But exhausted they sat as the darkness fell

their scepticism began to swell.

 

Every sound was heightened a noise they heard

was it footsteps in the trees?

An unusual bark as branches snapped nearby

then a chilling scream!

They hugged each other tight until half-light

as a shadow came into sight!

 

So quick they couldn’t be certain it was real

but sensed a presence near!

Trying to retrace the  paths they had come

slowly stumbling along.

Certain now hostile forces were close behind

not of any human kind!

 

Thinking at last they were safe the beast pounced

stopping the man’s progress.

In vain the girl tried to assist but he just vanished

she lay sprawled injured as well.

Luckily two farmers found her there bleeding

like animals on her feeding!

 

The young man’s remains were never discovered

she came home scarred but alive!

The search for proof of an alien beast goes on

the girl knew the sceptics were wrong!
