Abandoned!

They stood excitedly eager to enter this hospital

abandoned for decades left to rot

it was their advanced site visit for safety checks

known to being in poor repair

two members had volunteered to venture here

feeling the oppressive atmosphere!

 

Two members were on-call if they were needed

though experienced apprehensive

both putting on protective masks and goggles

because of the toxic asbestos dust

knowing what many witnesses had seen inside

certain it would be no joyride!

 

Freezing pitch black Halloween a few days away

sensed the activity in the air

no power on within the building long disconnected

had their bright head torches

with a map of the layout cautiously they explored

the increasing sounds could not be ignored!

 

Treading carefully on the unstable decaying flooring

stood where a nurse had hung herself

decades before was it imagination or really a shadow

swinging the sound of taunt rope

their breath visible in their torch-light a tingle upon

their cold skin but determined to plow on!

 

Had intended to separate but their unease was strong

out of the corner of the girls eye

saw a sudden motion and pain on her covered back

on examination her friend could see

deep scratches that grew as he watched mesmerized

the phenomena in his mind analyzed!

 

Both excited at the activity yet becoming concerned

decided to retrace their steps

a cry and doors banging came from every direction

it was as though they were targeted

an object in the darkness skimmed passed their heads

this their nerves tore to shreds!

 

Seasoned paranormal investigators fled the building

had managed to take a few pictures

keeping a night camera  running for the entire time

which later with the rest of the team

discovered disturbing unexplained images and voices

giving them for their visit stark choices!

 

On All Hallows Eve set off to investigate this tormented site!

Until!

For some years now the group had investigated

many reported haunted sites

on which every member the findings did debate

the many frightening nights

when sceptic and believer too often disagreed

as the investigation did proceed!

 

This philosophy worked well a mutual respect

until they visited the hospital

that had been abandoned its history suspect

with rumours and tittle-tattle

sounds and sightings of  dead patients seen

or the staff  it could have been!

 

This intrigued the groups sense of adventure

and determination to seek facts

with boldness and determination did enter

in the hope of making contact

with members of the local paranormal team

who knew the haunting was extreme!

 

First a walk around to known places of activity

static cameras with night vision

put in areas of  known sightings and negativity

making each move a joint decision

but even on this prelim voices were picked up

creating flutters in their gut!

 

Every piece of equipment was primed and ready

as the small group proceeded

lights were now turned off had to take it steady

and rules of engagement heeded

torches to guide them to the areas of interest

this night each it would test!

 

In the resuscitation room cries of pain are heard

picked up on the voice recorder

screams of a male asking for help clear each word

this nearly created disorder

one female says she has been touched on her face

shaken went back to the base!

 

Passing by the theatres a child’s laugh is so clear

everybody heard this faint sound

followed by an aggressive growl so very near

each suddenly turned around

slowly the few walked towards the trauma ward

an eerie place to be explored.

 

Reported in here coldness and shadows moving

even the double doors creaked

cautiously entering the mood was not improving

as a loud tap made a girl shriek

in the cameras viewfinder a human shape seen

also on the thermal image screen!

 

Then a deep rasping voice shouted clearly get out

the words confirmed on playback

a shadow darted around them in anger no doubt

another group member felt a whack

almost ending on the debris covered ward floor

they could not take any more!

 

Gathering outside by their van in the forecourt

the dawn was beginning  to break

every member shaken at what they had caught

though a long night were wide awake

the equipment still inside they had to retrieve

even the sceptics had to believe!

 

But there would be a lot more surprises in store

reviewing the footage taken

galvanizing them all into coming back for more

the investigation each had shaken

two hours later left to evaluate and contemplate

and their next actions to debate!
