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!

Ball Of Fire!

He was certain something fell from above

a bright orange ball of fire

with a fiery tail streaked across above him

dropping at speed downwards

a silent motion picture there was no sound

in the distant desert came to ground!

 

Awe struck to him thought this was a sign

very odd for a true atheist

had he actually found a suppressed faith

in a god our alleged creator

something made him become tenacious

for somebody always gracious!

 

From then on the image within embedded

had to reach that distant place

became a pilgrimage of personal discovery

instinct drove him forward

heading into the desert without hesitation

to seek for an explanation!

 

His mind-set on just one mission that ball

of bright orange fire he saw

without care for his safety just charged on

with only his instinct as a guide

certain he knew where it had descended

no stopping until frenzied quest ended!

 

Adrenaline forced a fatigued body onward

but his mechanical beast failed

as dusk fell the temperature plummeted

yet he had to stumble on

his mind buzzed knew it was very close by

emotions erupted started to cry!

 

Coming to a steep dip in the desert landscape

fell to his knees as he saw it

a large craft below hovering above the sand

did not feel scared observing

that urge to approach was quickly curtailed

like a banshee he wailed!

 

As he heard vehicles approach from behind

armed men surrounded him

forcibly was thrown shackled into a van

the last image was that craft

what had drawn him here wanted to stay

but the military took him away!

 

Now was linked to this alien technology

or was reality closer to home

if he survived had to get to the bottom

of a mystery so deeply drawn to

taken underground to a research facility

reduced for the moment to docility!

 

But within him hidden memories stirred!
