Far Below!

Like ants scurrying life went on far below

while several miles in the sky

an airline pilot knew there was a problem

the passengers were aware

after the shudder and bangs occurred

the assurances all were absurd!

 

Fear was etched on the air stewards faces

as the plane rapidly lost elevation

both the pilots struggling to regain control

passengers to filled with dread

oxygen masks came rapidly into their view

another bang as left engine blew!

 

Alarms sounded it was heading for the ground

no panic yet an expectation

nor screams or crying but a disturbing calm

each felt this their final destination

emergency crews ready at the nearby airport

impacting runway that was too short!

 

Crashing onto the tarmac at too high a speed

metal grating as plane ripped apart

fuel igniting spilling out of ruptured tanks

fire truck ready with foam spray

those inside waited for broken plane to stop

heading for a sheer drop!

 

With inches to spare the plane came to rest

now a raging fire people still alive

rescuers there to save to help survivors

fearing the worst they strived

to quell the savage flames and get them out

had anybody lived there was doubt!

 

For some astounding reason all were spared

now and forever a bond they shared!

 

The cause of the near disaster yet to be determined!

Unmarked!

Nobody would know what the truck carried

upon the national highways

an unmarked semi blending in with the others

the cab with darkened glass

few would notice it had been armour-plated

in an isolated compound waited!

 

There from a large warehouse men loaded

in hooded protective overalls

radio-active containers into the interior

lead-lined and air tight

guards and cameras watched every move

the commander had to approve!

 

Fully loaded with an illegal cargo departed

alone to join the highway

like a chameleon blended into the traffic

nobody suspected its load

through the dense traffic moving at speed

to its destination did proceed!

 

Not the first trip but one of many undertaken

by a fleet of large specialist rigs

with deadly loads taking the risk of detection

and of the hazards of a crash

but approved by an unregistered department

that had given consent!

 

Never without a covert military escort following

undetectable like the semi trucks

were designed to blend in with any background

they continue the deadly tasks

under the blinkered eyes of unsuspecting public

that had become very slick!

 

Upon the highways they carry their lethal loads

through major and minor roads

from one secret destination to the next roam

only the few need know

beware of all the unmarked semi trucks behind

or ahead and within confined!

That Smile

That smile will be with me forever

on the day it all went wrong

the two of us trying to be clever

our journey was too long

deciding to take a different trail

thus  must recount the tale!

 

That smile will be with me forever!

 

Desperate to try and save our marriage

after both drifting apart

had we passed that irreversible stage

our love was there a start

yet the tension high I drove far to fast

and our destinations cast!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Into a tree we rammed I was powerless

to avoid the collision

the anger had created this foolishness

shaping the final decision

my side was undamaged just shaken

realising I was mistaken!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Why had I been such a stubborn man

had shock awoken me

you the only one in my earthly plan

at first what I did not see

there hurt with that angelic smile

how bad I was in denial!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Somehow got a signal to call assistance

talking more than before

why now could we seem to be consistent

doing my best to reassure

that any problems we would transform

our love overcame any storm!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

As the rescue team arrived we tenderly kissed

such a magical moment

how such tenderness for so long I had missed

she had been to me sent

that smile I shall never forget or guilt fade

too late true feelings displayed!

 

She died from her injuries soon after!

That smile will remain with me forever!

Uncharted!

The battleship neared the planet going into orbit

classed as a routine exploration

of the vast an uncharted sector of this galaxy

as yet no contact had been made

this did not bode well there was an anticipation

trouble stirred at this destination!

 

During the scan of the planets barren service

signs of life were discovered

not of a basic form but one highly advanced

cautiously going on red alert

detecting a missile launch from surface below

following the rising glow!

 

Safety protocols immediately brought on-line

then retreated out of orbit

shields raised to protect the ship from damage

ready for impending impact

if their weapons this object could not  destroy

evasive action would employ!

 

More missiles rapidly followed after the first

but there were none that hit

other spacecraft were detected approaching

this must be a hidden base

that they had stumbled upon that was cloaked

trouble they had not provoked!

 

Deciding it was in their interest to exit the sector

and continue their exploration

but sensed this unknown race would be trouble

as it was known marauders

were unchallenged attacking any passing ships

yet making no fatal slips!

 

Though a battleship without the rest of the star fleet

it would not be wise to engage

but gather information and report back command

this encounter was unexpected

as the ship  went into hyper drive they were not alone

another craft followed into this zone.

 

Now they knew there was an enemy and danger close

the battle fleet summoned

they would let the scout ship follow for now untouched

knowing the enemy were near

soon space would erupt into a major dog fight and war

creating breaches in intergalatic law!

 

The long war had now begun!

Lost!

The couple followed the satellite navigation system

finding themselves by a church.

Derelict and isolated this was not their destination

lost where had they been brought?

The engine spluttered and stopped unable to restart

as daylight started to depart.

 

A little unsettled at first but as the time slowly passed

panic began to overwhelm them!

Isolated here somewhere alien they didn’t know

becoming fearful of their situation.

Reluctantly felt the strong urge to get out and see

wondering where this could be.

 

A noise of rusty hinges grating focused their vision

the chapel doors were open.

A monk materialised with a cowl covering his head

beckoning them to him!

For courage they gripped tightly each others hand

as their muscles began to expand!

 

Unable to withstand the power were forced forward

drawn into the pitch black!

Candles appeared lit filling every corner of the interior

as into their vision two coffins.

Placed in front of a small altar both were uncovered

their bodies inside discovered!

 

An overwhelming sensation of calmness and peace

as if floating they silently laid.

More shadowy cloaked monks were coming closer

staring into their caskets.

At rest a bright beam grew the way ahead so clear

no longer anything to fear!

 

Suddenly loud noises and blue lights were flashing

fire crews were frantically cutting.

To get them both out of their crushed automobile

drips put into empty veins.

Whispering voices saying we nearly lost these two

but for them death was not due!

 

Critically injured they were rushed to casualty

the GPS lay shattered in the wreckage!
