Sun!

It was not natural this deep redness of the sun

creating the appearance of a Mars surface

that made everything an alien landscape

streaks of white trails added to the image

none of those witnessing this daunting sight

could feel relaxed it was not natural light!

 

Within their throats a bitter gritty sensation

made them choke and gasp for breathable air

winged specters emerged adding to the terror

coming through portals in the unnatural clouds

thousands like a swarm of locusts now hung

waiting an order for an attack to be sprung!

 

It should have been dark as it was late autumn!

 

A substance on the ground began to blow hard

growing thicker large creatures broke out

people scattered falling as many were plucked

screaming taken up as winged beasts dropped

spewing flames burning the fleeing masses flesh

was it an invasion from hell this bloody mess?

 

He sat up shouting jumping out of bed at speed

just as his mum came running into his bedroom

not another nightmare son she stood by the door

yes shaking why do I keep having this dream

rattled said its the same one what does it mean

such a horrible things of which I have never seen!

 

Mum smiled maybe you are getting far to excited

about your part in the school play on Halloween

he was sixteen but still treated as a ten-year old

just helping back stage that’s not the problem

calmed down soon on his bike heading to school

on edge bad dreams never had them as a rule!

 

It was a full run through everybody was excited

the play was to take place after classes finished

as he headed to school noticed the sun was red

arriving the other kids laughed thought it cool

what he had seen was more than a nightmare

whatever was coming he too would share!

 

It went well a happy moment that could not last

as they left he knew what to expect as many ran

there was a shimmering red glow a rumble grew

devastated as in his dream the skies became alive

a scene that had almost scrambled his young mind

unknown forces upon the earth were now aligned!

 

Just wanted to get home his mum must be petrified

what he had feared was coming to pass before him

as the end of his nightmare would now be clarified

the rout intensified was this to be mankind’s destiny

a loud knock broke his concentration from writing

annoyed being disturbed his book getting exciting!

 

Dinner’s ready Dan better not be long or the dog will eat it!

Descend!

Felt very nervous as the airliner approached

the large busy international airport

relieved that we had all survived the ordeal

the other passengers also shaken

but the ordeal was certainly far from its end

as the aircraft began to descend!

 

A long haul flight from a popular destination

started as another routine trip

three hundred passengers happily got on board

filled with many different thoughts

sitting with the usual hassle and lots of chatter

now every moment for them did matter!

 

Arriving ten hours late at its European destination

fuel was at a critically low-level

had seen the silver metallic object at close quarter

flying closely along side the plane

that sharp turn as the pilots tried to avoid a collision

just missing with luck or precision!

 

Then the violent bang as eventually they impacted

luggage and passengers thrown

through the cabin with a destructive turbulent force

leaving many injured and petrified

but worse was to come when we fell from the skies

cabin pressure gone the awful cries!

 

The captain sounded calm as he warned us all

of the collision and rapid fall

telling us to brace ourselves the staff assisted

oxygen masks dropped into sight

as the end of our lives seemed an inevitability

totally exposing our vulnerability!

 

Our fate was certainly not in any human hands

as an engine burst into flames

and we all were thrust to the right as a voice

came emotionless over the intercom

to prepare for impact then we hit the runway

as spiritual came into play!

 

There was no fuel left we had recently been told

the only reason we did not fry

as it broke into two pieces the screaming stopped

the grating noise of metal on tarmac

pounded our bodies and minds we must perish

leaving those behind we cherish!

 

From utter despair and acceptance of our demise

the craft was now at a standstill

somehow the crew managed to open the doors

emergency shoots quickly deployed

and if by magic we were in the main terminal

battered shaken but relief discernible!

 

There had been no fatalities but many injured

as we all sat and stood dazed

men in black suits came with armed soldiers

confronted us with an ultimatum

that what had happened was an engine fault

a tragedy in which you were caught!

 

This would be in the official report to follow

if anybody veered from this line

they would visit them the consequences grave

with that clear threat departed

even though we knew it was a metallic UFO

the outside world would never know!

 

Defying their warning was determined to tell

now in fear listened for the doorbell!

Base!

The soldier sat on duty in the guard hut

trying to stay awake

certainly would be in trouble if caught

this a classified base

where many strange items were stored

he was safe they assured!

 

A large object had been delivered recently

covered in tarpaulin sheets

by hooded figures in unmarked uniforms

in the night brought it in

remembering seeing lights moving about

taught not to feel doubt!

 

He knew it was another craft from the stars

this was not the first delivered

to this covert military facility hidden here

out in the barren desert

far away from the public’s inquisitive stare

and media who were well aware!

 

Alone with only his thoughts for company

daring not to speculate

what was far below the ground in storage

or the research being done

he was a private in the military police unit

to protect at all costs his remit!

 

Tonight had a gut feeling it would not be quiet

there had been much activity

preparing for the first perimeter patrol an alert

received an urgent message

on the radio the main fence had been breached

for his side arm he reached!

 

As he prepared to go the rest of the team arrived

in their pick up trucks

just as an explosion came from the base offices

that lead to the facility

glowing objects zoomed in from the dark skies

the action a complete surprise!

 

Within one minute reached the reported section

the ground on fire but no tracks

even more military personnel now assembled

word came of  ferocious action

in the huge laboratories and hangars beneath

the innocent sprawling heath!

 

As they raced towards the unknown enemy

frantic voices warned stay back

as a massive explosion ripped the site apart

brining them to sudden stop

from out of the flames pulsating  orbs flew

making a spectacular view.

 

They were not fired on which made no sense

an odd sort of alien  invasion

even though missiles were quickly deployed

though none actually hit

the soldier wondered what had just happened

was this a start or the end?

 

Instead of fighting their task became rescue

and evacuating survivors

followed by a major clamp down of the site

information was very sparse

but he heard it was a breakout from within

of creatures with grey skin!

 

What secrets was he part of hiding here

this was the first time he felt fear!

Crash!

At first a few ornaments shook in the apartment

in that modern city block

complacent the warning ignored by the couple

then a more violent shudder

running out fearing the buildings destruction

outside was a total ruction!

 

Not from an earth quake they had first thought

but there had been a crash

the unrecognisable craft fallen from clear skies

huge of an unknown design

fire and flames spread along a devastating track

there was no going back!

 

More appeared firing  weapons into a fleeing crowd

masonry falling crushing many

helicopter gunships and fighter planes approached

then of no match to the foe

on the ground weird creatures herded those unhurt

driving them precise and covert!

 

At the start man was not fully prepared to fight

to retaliate to the alien massacre

these battles were coordinated around the globe

an unprovoked desecration

secret protocols were formulated by governments

on the possibilities of such events!

 

Satellites signals disrupted the attack a surprise

but a resistance had been planned

now to be implemented the fight back had begun

hidden basis and weapons brought on-line

powerful nations told us aliens didn’t really exist

and were slow in preparing to resist!

 

We had no warning yet the military certainly knew

mistrust at their real agenda grew!
