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!

Halloween!

The night the dead rise from their graves

entering earths fragile domain

our emotions are raised to frantic heights

for many fun to scare each other

not believing evil has really been freed

upon their souls it doth feed!

 

Today all hallows eve is fun for children

who wear costumes depicting

ghosts monsters creatures of the night

going to houses to trick or treat

to receive sweets now a social event

without any malicious intent!

 

But within the myth is there hidden truth

with a heightened probability

there is a sinister reality to these tales

that have been long jaded

that through our long fudged history

there does exist a dark mystery!

 

Maybe wise to remember on this festival

some of those you meet

are not living humans in the darkness

and should take extra care

who you are with and may well interact

it’s not lurking ghouls you attract!

 

On this one night of Halloween each year

pray in your life they do not interfere!

Large Black Eyes!

Stories have been told for many decades

that have increased in intensity

creating terror for those it has touched

instilling a dread none will forget

one incident happened on a Halloween

the fear could not be foreseen!

 

Around ten in the evening the dog barked

running about in a crazy manner

she was otherwise alone on this night

heard a faint tap on the front door

feeling uncertain walked down the hall

heard a child’s faint voice call!

 

There were no children living in the house

just herself with the agitated dog

her husband had left to work a night shift

through the frosted glass

two small silhouettes were visible there

of her own anxiety was aware!

 

The voice called again please may we come in

she thought it late for children

to be on their own replied what do you want

her hand shook opening the door

looked down saw two poorly dressed children

one about twelve the other under ten!

 

The barking continued as an unpleasant odour

made her feel suddenly nauseous

the older child stepped forward into clear view

illuminated by the hall light

making her move back strangely was afraid

their presence a threat conveyed!

 

Holding the door tightly so neither could enter

then they lifted their heads together

holding back a scream shocked at what she saw

their eyes were large and black

two pale skinned faces that seemed stretched

on them something inhuman etched!

 

Slammed the door and put on the safety change

added go away you cannot come in

what seemed like hours they stood on the porch

but eventually walked away

went to the bay window with its clear street view

they were nowhere insight terror grew!

 

Sat freezing on the carpet for the remaining night

a frightened pet huddled close and tight!
