Mirror!

The room was bare except for a mirror

covered in a thick black sheet

it was a dare that he and his girlfriend

should explore the property

an abandoned country house by a lake

was their biggest mistake!

 

On a winter’s night frost settling they came

ignoring the private signs

reluctantly neared the foreboding manor

with a crowbar gained entry

with only their torches and a frantic prayer

of that room were soon aware!

 

Both were certain somebody went into within

had to explore for themselves

scared but a reaction held onto each other

into the room that was unblemished

no signs of decay or vandalism both wondered

where had they stupidly blundered?

 

A natural reaction together pulled off the cover

the doors behind slammed shut

in the images from the mirror showed a room

furnished candles flickered a fire spat

a monstrous figure came into view stared back

as if was instantly going to attack!

 

Retreating to the doors praying they would open

just as the fiend was lashing out

they opened adrenaline gave them strength

as crashing into objects really hurt

losing their way in the torch-light they feared

beginning to wonder is safety neared!

 

Found themselves now in a glass conservatory

rotting vegetation covered the ground

could see this thing getting ever closer  behind

without faltering crashed through glass

hitting gravel and rolling down a steep bank

into the lake of stagnant water that stank!

 

Managed to get out feeling weak and very sick

had to stop even if it was a finality

but nothing was following it seemed so quiet

the house looked more haunting

as the early dawn light surrounded their vision

reviewing in some pain their decision!

 

Their teeth chattering limbs becoming so numb

knew they had to move or freeze

unsure how safe it was even though daylight

slow progress could here sounds

hoping it was just the wildlife that was nearby

then heard that blood stopping cry!

 

Was the monster hunting them?

A Friends Apartment!

The surroundings of his friend’s apartment

was unfamiliar to him.

How they’d got back was a total mystery

waking up on the couch.

Needing to find the toilet for an urgent pee

but it was difficult to see.

 

No idea where the bathroom was situated

knocking into furniture.

Unable to find a light switch blundered on

at last finding the room.

Relief! Found himself staring at his reflection

in a mirror feeling rejection!

 

Then for a second an image came behind him

certain it was his friend.

Swinging around to speak nothing was there

how could he be that quick?

Now adjusted to darkness made his way back

on a table his leg did whack!

 

Sliding his hand along the wall found the switch

instantly was painfully bright.

Soon becoming alert when he saw the gory mess

and vandalised room!

Blood spattered on the floors and every wall

then on something did fall!

 

The body of a young woman he’d never met

now smeared in her blood!

Running to the hallway trying to escape

the exit door was insight.

Reaching it only to find it had been locked

his rationality rocked!

 

What was he trapped in here with he stressed

where was his elusive mate?

His breath now laboured and sweat dripped

afraid to move a muscle!

Knowing it had killed one person already

on his feet was unsteady!

 

Nearby was an old-fashioned hat stand

a wooden cane hung there.

Reaching out gripped it in his sticky hand

seeing movement nearby.

There looking at him was he guessed his mate

bloody eyes filled with hate!

 

He knew what had turned this gentle person

was not an important issue.

Hoping he had the strength to fight for his life

as the beast lunged forward.

Hitting it as hard as he could but to no avail

this act sadly did fail!

 

But the cane had snapped in two he held a stake

very long and jagged!

By luck or a higher power there was one chance

the beast came at him again!

Lowering its head he thrust it hard like a sword

praying a direct hit he’d scored!

 

An awful scream and this thing fell on top of him

he could see the cane had struck.

Piercing an eye pushing it off him he just cried

as voices and banging.

Started loudly on the still locked main front door

he was safe he felt sure.

 

But at that moment the beast rose from the floor!
