Deep Waters!

Not even a ripple disturbed the dark deep waters

of the secluded mysterious inland lake

stories had been told for centuries of a monster

that roamed the deep below

open grassland swept down to the lapping shore

rising to the high mountainous contour!

 

Deep murky water that kept its secrets hidden

cold and unforgiving to humans

who had searched its depths for endless decades

certain the beast was within

many sightings and hoaxes kept the legend viable

not really classified as reliable!

 

But the stream of monster seekers was constant

hoping to get their glimpse of it

whatever swam and lived there below covertly

yet no conclusive evidence found

driftwood birds rippling waves it was suggested

as no beast in the waters infested!

 

Yet there is an element of possibility that lingers

those who live around the waters

seemed to believe and that underlining disquiet

it existed there beneath

a respect for what is part of their ancient folklore

that simmer’s all along the lakeshore!

 

They deeply feel this is not a mythical creature

and maybe is able to be camouflaged

observing man fearful of his ominous presence

or is there a magical reality here

they watch waiting with cameras peering eyes

endlessly from dusk to sunrise!

 

Has somebody caught sight and their claim denied

without doubt not wrongly identified!

 

What does prowl beneath the deep dark waters?

Encounter!

On his way to meet friends at a hotel

set in a valley amongst trees

the journey took him on lonely roads

untouched and unspoilt

elements of magic and ancient legends

around the dips and bends!

 

Now dusk wished he was not on his own

eyes tiring in the gloom

hindered by a thickening mist in the valley

the radio crackled annoyingly

ahead saw somebody walking in the road

at a good pace they strode!

 

Approaching seemed to walk into his path

yet no sound of impact felt

even driving slow could not avoid a collision

coming to an emergency stop

concerned had to reverse back to be sure

frantically had to explore!

 

Hesitantly got out into the swirling moist mist

glad he brought the torch

searched in a frenzied manner a long stretch

of  road and grass verge

nothing was there no body of man or beast

then all rationality ceased!

 

Petrified to be there what had he really seen

heard a noise what was around

quickly got in the car accelerating forward

not caring visibility was poor

until his speed made him swerve just missing

the car a tree nearly kissing!

 

Inches from its base halted spooked drove on

the faint lights of the hotel

came into a weary man’s gaze a relieved sigh

the entrance was approaching

parking headed to meet the others inside

fearful with them had to confide!

 

Certain the encounter was real not a memory

maybe a prowling spectre

though an unknown element was with him

had a perception it had come

his skin began to crawl feeling sick and cold

for them all the horror would unfold!

 

The mist thickened around the hotel as they came!

Abduction!

The young couple first met at college

not instant love but it grew.

Through their studies they progressed

eventually settling down.

Buying their nice idyllic suburban home

their hobby they liked to roam.

 

On a summer’s evening decided to travel

to the coast for a break.

Happy and contented set off for the sea

travelling on lonely roads.

As dusk approached they noticed a light

like a star but far more bright!

 

Just  a glimpse as they were very excited

as from a hill they saw the resort.

By now it was dark as many stars twinkled

but this one object was close.

It seemed to be following at a rapid speed

then they began to heed!

 

They were now entering their destination

how strange they thought.

Pulling into a car park they both felt tired

their watches had stopped!

Entering a supermarket they noticed a clock

two hours of time lost a shock!

 

Their last memory that approaching light

now their bodies began to hurt!

After having a pot of tea felt a little better

going onto the booked motel.

It was after a shower the marks were clear

how they got them no idea!

 

Weeks passed yet both were unable to settle

reading an article on alien abductions.

Though sceptical they had to find out more

was this what happened to them?

Under hypnosis to their dismay it  was true

their beliefs they had to review!

 

As the details of their ordeal became clear

they realised the meaning of fear!

That others told the same tale was a concern

it was very likely they would return!

 

Do you believe that Alien Abduction is real

or just imagination do you feel?

 

I think there has been too many reported cases

there has to be something going on!
