The Cult!

There he sat cold cruel eyes surveying

the large group of women

who were mesmerized by his presence

absorbing every single word

head of a cult where he was their god

ruling them with an iron rod!

 

The family he liked to call his followers

lived in a fortified compound

his kingdom where he had total control

quoting from his written bible

and the original with his interpretation

for the religion of his creation!

 

Filled their minds with doomsday warnings

a fort with arms and provisions

each female was classed as his concubine

morality was set at his limits

as more young were drawn into this cult

only him did they all exalt!

 

Families at a loss on what could be done

unable to make any contact

even though their children did not listen

their thoughts under his control

encapsulated within this perilous society

that was of dubious piety!

 

The dangers clear but somehow proceeded

nothing good everybody knew

would come of  a narrow-minded philosophy

based in a country just staying

for the moment within its legal borderline

becoming harder to define!

 

Warnings signs were clearly visible to see

but ignored only death can I foresee!

Completed!

The subway train drivers shift was completed

tired after a long day.

With the last few passengers still to get off

it came to a grating halt.

Approaching the last station on the route

their situation becoming acute!

 

Power was then lost emergency lights on

a weird action then followed.

All the sliding doors opened with a thud

how the electricity was off!

Up ahead there was something on the line

what it was he couldn’t define!

 

His journey back to base had been delayed

certainly quietly terrified

Made the decision to gather his passengers

their number only five.

Decided to guide them back down the train

feeling the energy drain!

 

Expecting at each open gap an entity to board

soon they reached the rear.

Jumping down onto the underground line

fumbling in the eerie dark.

A few dim lights made the progress a crawl

but every few feet they’d fall!

 

As the group moaned and questioned why

they needed to escape.

A sound from behind made their ears pop

now it was time to run.

Whatever had been infront on display

was now coming their way!

 

A pressure was building everything shuddered

as if thousands of pounding feet.

Coming at last to the previous station scrabbled

onto the welcoming platform.

Followed rapidly by small spidery like creatures

swarming with fiendish features!

 

One of the five slipped and instantly overwhelmed

is seconds only bones remained.

Just keeping ahead ran up the still escalators

along passageways to the exit.

The steel entrance door suddenly opened wide

and they ran outside!

 

A group sped passed in special protective suits

and some unusual weapons.

Awful noises from within seemed to be endless

they were taken away for checks.

And to be debriefed about what each one saw

informing them to say nothing more!

 

Hours later the drivers day at last was completed

and he wearily got home.

Trying to take in what had happened on his shift

throwing his close down.

Just wanted to get in the shower and feel clean

the creature he had not seen!

No Choice!

Having to find somewhere wasn’t easy

eventually a house came up.

First time I saw it had an eerie feeling

without another option took it.

With a choice I wouldn’t have moved in

as soon troubles would begin!

 

 

For some reason I couldn’t get enthusiastic

taking some time to get the stuff in.

My girlfriend came to her brother helped us

even loaning his van.

An old house but in a good state of repair

something wasn’t right there!

 

It was a quite small big enough for us two

in our bedroom was a big closet.

Every night the door just swung open

it felt like eyes watching you!

If you tried to sleep whispering in your ear

shadowy figures seemed to appear!

 

Escalating to heavy pressure on your chest

my partner woke choking.

Like hands tightening around her throat

we slept no more that night.

An atmosphere grew neither could define

our relationship began to decline!

 

It was though our humanity was being drained

evil thoughts entered my mind.

Towards the woman I loved happily so long

she became terrified of me!

But when I physically attacked and hurt her

all reality became a blur!

 

When the police came to arrest me for assault

was the route to my escape!

As it was concluded I was mentally unstable

and ended up in mental hospital.

While in there I met an interesting old guy

said he didn’t have long to die!

 

Knew all about the house I’d not long purchased

admitting he’d lived there.

Many years ago and was driven to murder

and it was his malevolent spirit.

That still  existed in the fabric of that place

evil showed in his gnarled face!

 

Whether it was true I couldn’t really be sure

but everybody loathed him there.

Soon afterwards passed on and I didn’t mourn

my girlfriend soon got better.

And I was then released and officially sane

but answers still remain!

 

Never returned to that strange house or area

lost on the whole deal.

Got our relationship back to how it was before

heard the house was destroyed.

Bodies were found in the buildings rubble

leaking gas caused the trouble!

 

I guess the old man was not so mad!
