Android!

He evaluated his future how this body ached

knowing death was very near

time was not a friend but a nagging enemy

even his plan was complicated

surrounded by computer screens and android

at this moment life was void!

 

Not for him the cryogenics route to being frozen

not the body or even the head

his aim was to transfer his mind into a robot

had to be reliable to his design

that moment was at last within his embrace

as he looked at the young face!

 

Had to admit it this body was a true likeness

of himself at twenty-two

this was exciting knowing he would not decay

with no human frailties

living on without the limitation of human time

would remain in his prime!

 

It was a risk but was resigned if he expired

at least knew he had tried

being frail it was hard to connect the wires

could not share his secret

hated the so-called friends that mocked him

his view of them was dim!

 

Smiled it made his face even more grotesque

next to the still perfect android

both connected to computers and each other

with a bony decaying finger

struggled to hit the enter key then it began

executing his mind transference plan!

 

His body writhed as his memories and essence

were drained the computers flashed

leaving the empty corpse upon the leather chair

for a few minutes nothing moved

the light show stopped and death was present

his mind and body was spent!

 

Realisation that he was alive in some capacity

took a few minutes to register

for the first time the android rotated its head

the scientist transfer a success

slowly standing up coordination was unsteady

it would be awhile before he was ready!

 

How extraordinary no pain his thoughts clear

with a new perfect vessel

no fear of ageing or human functions to impair

after disposing of his own corpse

could start his new life nothing to hold him back

he would make sure the future was black!

 

The taxi he had just rang for arrived swiftly

awkwardly the young man got in briskly

nothing could ever be the same for us again

with the creators malevolent destructive reign

now into androids a mind could be transferred

the notorious this method would be preferred!

 

Immortality had come for whom could pay the price!

Alerted!

It was the swinging hallway light flex

alerted him all was not well

as he waited could not feel any draft

just wanted to leave now

in his girlfriends house always scared

though this he had not shared!

 

He loved the sweet girl he met at college

not her parents Victorian house

always gave him a cold chill as he entered

knew it held a dark secret

always glad to leave its oppressive grip

always tasting blood on his lip!

 

Relieved to see his beautiful girl ready to go

breathed again outside the door

that crawling sensation of being observed

from the attic window lingered

was always afraid to raise his head to see

scared made him want to pee!

 

Had to be love surely to face the daily ordeal

but one day had to tell her

it had become an obsession he could not hide

to his surprise she felt it to

since she was very young had feared the night

always afraid to turn off her light!

 

From under her bed she often heard scratching

a clawed hand gripped the bedding

sometimes mum told her to turn the light off

then it stood in full view

often she screamed and her parents came

for a time with her did remain!

 

But in the end when nothing was ever found

said it was just her imagination

so had to face it on her own until it attacked

violently grabbing her arm

pulling and ripping flesh on skin exposed

the truth at last disclosed!

 

They were sitting in a cafe telling her story

even here he was afraid

as she explained they had to seek refuge

in a neighbour’s house that night

as the family fled from their own dwelling

what would happen no foretelling!

 

Before they could re-enter an exorcism

on the property performed

for a while all seemed to be normal again

but the hauntings returned

then realised she was the one possessed

had come to feel blessed!

 

Shaken these words he could not believe

but in the corner booth

her face became grotesque his soul lost

silently the teenager left

leaving the corpse sitting as if sleeping

neck broken heart not beating!

 

Nobody noticed the pretty girl leave alone

innocently talking on her cell phone!

Morgue!

It seemed an inexplicable place even for the dead!

 

Grave yard shift was never the favourite to get

even to the senior technician

he could easily recall many strange events

but on this particular shift

it would change his conception of reality

that none could foresee!

 

The only morgue in the small state county

based in the town hospital

always busy yet this night unusually quiet

then a telephone message

telling them a corpse was to be delivered

for some reason both shivered!

 

Just two on duty upon this dreaded shift

and five silent guests

one lay under a white sheet for an autopsy

early the coming morn

the new arrival would upset the ambience

the pressure becoming intense!

 

Around mid night the swing doors burst open

their new guest wheeled in

quickly placed in the allotted storage fridge

awaiting the duty pathologist

no details given even the paper work lacking

unanswered questions stacking!

 

That oppressive awareness began to mutate

retreating to the rest room

for a well-earned break at the mid night hour

soon a tapping sound heard

reverberating like a drum through corridors

their conversation on pause!

 

It stopped for a while then started once more

like a fist knocking on a door

reluctantly decided to investigate the source

as the noise wearily persisted

both re-entered the dimly lit autopsy room

they glared into the gloom!

 

Just as it went quiet again standing shaking

nothing looked disturbed

relieved turned there was a very loud bang

ran to the doorway before

daring to see it was the fridge open wide

the one with the body inside!

 

Neither of them wanting to move nearer

but were curious to view

even in the blue-tinted night lighting

could see the tray empty

on the tiled floor the abandoned body bag

along with the name tag!

 

Where had it gone more knocking began

it was definitely in front

uncertain of what was actually happening

headed for the only exit

could not escape their door passes failed

within their work place jailed!

 

Plunged into darkness something approached

as the emergency lighting

came on they were confronted by a woman

in her chest a gaping wound

how could she be alive the last words expelled

as to the ground were felled!

 

One managed badly wounded to crawl away

hitting the fire alarm button

waking in the casualty unit shaken in pain

but certain he was still alive

chaos surrounded him and he knew why

the thing that could not die!

 

It had escaped what had been unleashed on society

He suddenly began to feel unwell!
