Shouting from within the house was disturbing
terrified screams permeated
the neighbours had been use to frequent rows
but even they were shaken
the police were called but never came for hours
the next day people laid flowers!
When the house was entered there were bodies
a massacre the description
yet though eight were found spread in rooms
certain the killer was not there
known for their family feud it seemed overkill
a dread in the community did instill!
The house lay empty nobody wanted to go near
there was a dark atmosphere
from a fun street it became somber and quiet
nobody had been caught
who could do such a thing to in this household
it seemed a mystery untold!
During the next year several bodies were found
in random spots in the same area
as those in the house mutilated the same way
all related to the house owners
yet no clues to give any identity to the culprit
no scenarios would fit!
Theories abounded gang related or a grudge
passing down the many years
they were from a country vampires lived
cursed for long gone wrongs
had caused some ancient beings to hate
so the generations had to eliminate!
Wild stories circulated some were simply fantasy
then as the shocking case
had started one night it all came to a chilling end
a body in a ritual type pose
found near to the street in bushes on wasteland
with a bloody axe in its hand!
For some reason not explained by the authorities
declared it was the wanted assassin
so there was nothing to fear anymore now safe
file closed no evidence disclosed
that cloud of suspicion would never go away
something nasty was at play!
That house where it all began stayed empty
many thought it haunted
slowly decaying over time others reported
shadowy beings following
wandering around the area few dared go
for animals was a no-show!
There is a house in a street it could be near you!
