Impulse!

It was on impulse he stopped he thought

this thundery night as the rain fell

in a blinding lightning flash was certain

something was standing ahead

that moment of dread overwhelmed him

certain this was no imaginary whim!

 

Had only one pint with a meal an hour ago

was feeling fine until now

decided to drive on the car would not start

then all the electrics failed

now really scared he just watched the storm

another flash closer a shape did form!

 

It looked like a woman in a white nightgown

long straggly dark hair

soaked the head bowed standing in the road

thinking she was distressed

yet that gut instinct was telling him to stop

this was but a false backdrop!

 

Another loud thunder-clap and bright flash

now stood close to the bonnet

head was raised exposing a grotesque face

skeletal in its appearance

at this shocking image there was no escape

what really was the monstrous shape?

 

Frenzy overwhelmed him he was trapped

pulling at the door handle

until his hands bled he started to go mad

another flash nothing was there

until he sensed movement from behind

for his fate was resigned!

 

With an almighty clap of thunder he knew

it was with him in the car

nobody heard his muffled pitiful screams

as beside him the thing sat

his heart and mind could take it no more

as the rain outside did pour!

 

As daylight broke the storm had abated

a passing farmer found him

lights and engine running on the roadway

glancing in saw the expression

of terror slumped pale staring wide-eyed

he was all alone inside!

Two Lights!

High in the sky two lights flickered on and off

drawing my attention.

Clear and dark not a sound could I hear

fixed on watching.

This display to fast for planes yet controlled

what was about to unfold?

 

The silence of the night near the stone circle

in a small Wiltshire village.

Driving away that sense of being followed

just wouldn’t leave me.

A few miles on the car came to a gentle rest

on a hillside crest!

 

Two lights coming directly at my vision

the cars electrics failed!

It was as if this was an aliens flight path

would I be abducted?

Prepared for the worst shutting my eyes

then looking clear skies!

 

No signs of any lights except for the stars

greeted my starring gaze.

The car started and lit up scared I went home

arriving calmly got out!

Heard countless stories of what many had seen

belief where doubt had been!

 

There is more going on than we are told!
