Obsession!

Always had the obsession he was being followed

even before the digital generation

that familiar figure whom he had seen before

not certain this was his imagination

a click on the phone as if somebody listening

an uncomfortable sensation inside

even in his own home that object had moved

thought must be getting confused!

 

Atheist in his beliefs so no angel was by his side

yet felt the tingle of uncertainty

as if eyes were peering at him twenty four seven

over a couple of years it was constant

technology had begun to advance at a brisk rate

intrusion of privacy a big debate!

 

Became bedeviled that some agency was listening

checking his data did not feel free

being a conspiracy theorist was often outspoken

many colleagues had been shut down

just told the truth of what he saw in this society

but this simply increased his anxiety!

 

Filled with doubt about everything around him

sat one night staring very attentively

at his laptop screen when an image appeared

several days later he was discovered

by his worried girlfriend absolutely stone dead

face hideously distorted and crushed head!

 

What really had been watching and ended his life?

Never an investigation to ease pain or strife!

Short Journey!

Through life’s short journey that can be strenuous

emotions often dominate how we react

possessive and violence are common tendencies

mar most of our rational actions we make

such as harmony cooperation with genuine care

often is an option that’s not there!

 

Discipline and self-control not forgetting respect

is often lost when many want to have fun

out for enjoyment excessive drinking with mates

to be in good company with no violent intent

yet some do like to hurt mock and with malice kill

no remorse or hesitation to them another thrill!

 

Once in a minority this evil scourge is on the rise

who will stop them as these thugs rampage on

the law is limp seemingly unable to stop brutality

these gangs think they can do what they want

fear rules everyone is at risk on our streets today

no longer certain its safe to work or play!

 

Violence surely is an evolving human abomination

where power and wealth are above contempt

for billions forced into hopelessness and despair

policing for those trying to abide the law

is slowly withdrawn because of financial restraints

disillusioned no point making complaints!

Resigned!

Admitting that life can be lonely living alone

after it must be over thirty years

on reflection maybe it was always my destiny

one regret never found a soul mate

to share thoughts interests and have a laugh

independent is fine but would be nice

to find somebody to ring visit or have some fun

now feel my timeline has overrun!

 

How the years have flown by and the body ages

for some the dawn of a new beginning

being so busy never have a moment to be alone

yes have children this is certainly true

but they do not need old dad hanging around

having their own lives to see through

nice to have a special friend honest and true!

 

In a society that has lost that closeness and unity

many dread their forced isolation

with social health no longer an affordable priority

the elderly feel they are a burden

admit this has started to be a concern in my mind

eventually to the inevitable resigned!

Tattoo!

Always embarrassed at the weird design

of the tattoo on his arm

found it when he awoke with a hangover

a night out with the lads

only months before but seemed like years

getting nothing but sneers!

 

Even family shunned him afraid to be near

life was hell with the tattoo

painful constantly throbbing had little sleep

never believed in spirits

yet the face scared him felt very unclean

his actions becoming obscene!

 

As the long dark cold winter nights began

the tattoo glowed in the void

that urge to kill for blood overcame him

a deep voice directed his actions

the once gentle soul had gone evermore

soon becoming part of folklore!

 

Stalking the shadows in black hooded cloak

a phantom silent and merciless

never leaving any clues or victims to tell

of their deadly encounter

that expressionless face and knife in his fist

any pleas for mercy dismissed!

 

Soon society would know the evil was back

for in a new host it was Jack!

Nobody!

Nobody can know what you are thinking inside

or how your self-respect is shattered

it is a personal hell you all face just to function

your existence seem totally battered

none of your relationships ever seem to last

but determined have to face the past!

 

Hard as it maybe for us to create a new dream

in the end only we can truly decide

if we can be charming get out with the team

to not be depressed so regain our pride

believe we are as good as anybody around you

through experience know this is true!

 

Once your confidence has been slowly drained

feeling so much weight on your head

wanting to scream being wound up and tense

thinking the only way out is death

but to remember your children need you there

their love is true for dad really care!

 

Easy for self-pity to drag you down in a divorce

doctors just offering you pills to take

adults fighting with animosity feelings sour

communications with each other gone

yet your children who are caught in the middle

do not understand the divorce riddle!

 

For me my sanity was saved by young minds

who wanted their parents to care

to love and not argue or be unhappy together

just share their lives even if apart

so hard for every one but kept in close touch

now all grown up love then so much!

Hole!

There is a very deep hole a man has declared

a bottom of which has not been found

perfectly round created not of natural design

as if an entrance to another domain

discovered by a farmer on his vast barren land

surprised discovering it by chance

nobody had mentioned the anomaly was there

as down into its depths did stare!

 

Experimented in trying to detect how far down

the ominous blackness descended

throwing objects to see time for noise to return

that never happened was disturbed

even fishing line to the length of fifteen miles

was not sufficient to reach the base

metal rings went down as far as he could see

it was frightening absolutely eerie!

 

Made him shake felt very queasy on the edge

certain something was crawling

up from this hole to take or devour his being

what could it be where did it lead

had to get away as his mind was overwhelmed

even his horses cried out in fear

ran from this bottomless pit would not go near

sensed an ominous atmosphere!

 

Was the moment of the awakening about to unfold

had he been spared so his story could be told?

Angel!

He knew as his guts twisted in tight knots

the wildly swinging sign

was not due to natures raging wind

but what stood in the rift

opened by a witches provocative spell

there would be no time to dwell!

 

The entity had crossed into earths realm

dark forces he had witnessed

over the centuries of constant battles

he himself was an angel

sent by the creator to protect his flock

until this moment deadlock!

 

A powerful magic had been unleashed

he could not fight alone

as more destruction of a battered world

could finally rip it apart

felt their growing spiritual forces soaring

in a realm of constant warring!

 

The ancient ones had prised open the gates

allowing the armies of evil in

his army of holy angels almost slaughtered

battling those once united

most of humanity knew nothing of this foe

as the grace had become a dim glow!

 

With almighty power he summoned his troops

would this be the final conflict

the skies became darkened bursting with light

thunder shook the earth

storms fiercely raged as mountains exploded

God the Devil goaded!

Concern!

Surely this must be of great concern now

to our very existence on earth

that it has been reported of the extinction

of billions of animal species

insects and plankton gone at a rapid rate

yet do you here of this debate?

 

How often do you see variety of butterflies

that were part of our summers

bumblebees and endless varieties of birds

are becoming less visible now

occasionally it is reported of birds falling

from the sky dead appalling!

 

Fish to wash up on beaches rivers and lakes

no explanation it is said found

but this is happening on an increasing scale

as more are becoming extinct

what has caused these catastrophic events

the implications to us so immense!

 

Unexplained phenomenon is being reported

but is the truth being distorted?

Battled!

As the young nurse battled to help the child

a bullet pieced her brain

she laid next to the traumatized youngster

as black smoke billowed

all around them as others through stones

just wanting to be left alone

many more were hit as they loudly protested

as the soldier mocked and jested!

 

As a powerful nation was intent on eliminating

a race of people they hated

no mercy for their lives or culture were given

just a cold psychotic belief

that they were simply in their way and must go

total annihilation the final aim

even with the outcry by many nations to cease

from the aggressor would find no peace!

 

Even those reporting these outrageous sights

were always in the snipers sights

the world watched seemly helpless to intervene

onward rolled the killing machine!

Birth!

Had taken so long to pluck up courage

at the airport time to ponder the past

born forty-two years on this very day

now alone waiting to board a plane

did not tell the parents or try to explain

her hidden feelings of hurt and pain!

 

Knew she was abandoned from birth

brought up in an orphanage until ten

then foster homes were she suffered

abused pleas for help were ignored

attempted suicide a cry for support

in a vicious cycle had been caught!

 

Eventually she found loving parents

when seventeen and was adopted

guiding a young woman to sanity

married but divorced had one child

now grown up and turned out fine

who had brought back the sunshine!

 

This journey had to be done all alone

to meet the woman who gave her life

yet forsaken the child soon after birth

what truths would be unearthed!

 

The countdown to her heritage had begun!
