Abandoned!

They stood excitedly eager to enter this hospital

abandoned for decades left to rot

it was their advanced site visit for safety checks

known to being in poor repair

two members had volunteered to venture here

feeling the oppressive atmosphere!

 

Two members were on-call if they were needed

though experienced apprehensive

both putting on protective masks and goggles

because of the toxic asbestos dust

knowing what many witnesses had seen inside

certain it would be no joyride!

 

Freezing pitch black Halloween a few days away

sensed the activity in the air

no power on within the building long disconnected

had their bright head torches

with a map of the layout cautiously they explored

the increasing sounds could not be ignored!

 

Treading carefully on the unstable decaying flooring

stood where a nurse had hung herself

decades before was it imagination or really a shadow

swinging the sound of taunt rope

their breath visible in their torch-light a tingle upon

their cold skin but determined to plow on!

 

Had intended to separate but their unease was strong

out of the corner of the girls eye

saw a sudden motion and pain on her covered back

on examination her friend could see

deep scratches that grew as he watched mesmerized

the phenomena in his mind analyzed!

 

Both excited at the activity yet becoming concerned

decided to retrace their steps

a cry and doors banging came from every direction

it was as though they were targeted

an object in the darkness skimmed passed their heads

this their nerves tore to shreds!

 

Seasoned paranormal investigators fled the building

had managed to take a few pictures

keeping a night camera  running for the entire time

which later with the rest of the team

discovered disturbing unexplained images and voices

giving them for their visit stark choices!

 

On All Hallows Eve set off to investigate this tormented site!

All Hallows Eve!

Visiting a friend for dinner was an unusual quest

because contact was lost long ago

apprehension because she was just a school mate

who was happier in her own company

why had she decided to contact after all this time

as she never thought of her as sublime!

 

Remembering nobody liked her believing in the occult

everybody thought of her as weird

truthfully the rumours were she was a black witch

naturally the other students shunned her

so Lyn was the only one to make any contact at all

that fact she certainly did recall!

 

Why now had this invitation come through the letter box

how had angel the name did not fit

find where she lived changing her name when married

but there was a desperation in the words

a nagging curiosity the only way to satisfy was to go

but scared as she would be solo!

 

The date was interesting for the meal Hallowe’en

which added to her uncertainty

but decided she had to see if angel had changed

being it was years since they spoke

the address was not easy to find in heavy rain

making her eyes ache with the strain!

 

At the end of a row of very old cottages she saw

the most dilapidated one of them all

even more nervous parked in front on a verge

walked up the dirt and muddy path

the dangling overgrowth touching her face

made it a much quicker pace!

 

Getting to the front door angel was patiently waiting

dressed in a long black dress

making her look older especially with long hair

for a moment she saw an old hag

then back to normal she entered the front room

noticing in a corner a witches broom!

 

The table was laid near to the open roaring fire

in contrast to the outside plot

pleasantly surprised at the welcome received

began letting her guard relax

the meal was soon served with plenty of wine

now glad she had come to dine!

 

Forgetting it was the night of All Hallows Eve

could never conceive the outcome

becoming very warm tired and light-headed

never admitting to being drunk

talking like bosom friends with gusto laughed

obliterated her fear of witchcraft!

 

Soon the midnight hour chimed on the clock

in the hall as Lyn fell asleep

now the cold made her shiver was it morning

unable to move her arms bound

to posts sticking up from the damp wet ground

with a clear chanting sound!

 

Numb with the penetrating damp permeating

her now naked flesh they came

black-robed figures surrounding her closing in

just able to make out markings

certain she was in the centre of a large pentagon

sensing her life was now done!

 

One stepped forward and crouched by her head

pulling back the hood spoke

though it was hard to see recognised the voice

it was angel the evil witch

glad you came tonight to become our sacrifice

raising a knife her heart did splice!

 

Now more unspeakable monsters filled the circle

as angel screamed with pleasure

let the celebrations of the witches night begin

as Lyn’s blood soaked into the earth

her body thrust onto the bonfire the devil rose

dancing around the victim they chose!

 

Hope you are not scared to death on Halloween!
