Entering the ancient inn on the moors
for a second saw himself
lying throat cut on the flag stone floor
like a premonition said later
shaking sat down on a rickety bench
noticing a nasty stench!
His girlfriend joined him so concerned
it was her idea to come here
a quaint inn with a long dark history
both had a fascination for ghosts
often travelling to these eerie locations
for paranormal confrontations!
Not members of dedicated investigators
but paying to be scared
from growing companies making money
for those who wanted to seek
this was a knew experience for the pair
that they both could share!
Here for the first time they were scared
until now fun and a thrills
realising maybe they really did exist
saying nothing thinking
it could be the atmosphere here created
decided feeling agitated!
He explained what he had experienced
feeling on edge it felt so real
she to sensed eyes were there glaring
slightly easing as people came
the leaders for the night set the scene
all hyped up and very keen!
For awhile their minds were occupied
by the mediums revelations
moving to the areas said to be haunted
who told them the history
when she sensed spirits were nearby
gave out a bizarre cry!
Adding to this being mainly in the dark
the couple became spooked
as he again found himself on the floor
the same bloody image
made him yell having to quickly run
his time within was done!
The couple moved away from the inn
something was wrong
surprised the medium came to them
expressing her concern
the same shocking image she had seen
such a realistic scene!
Suggested they go in to face their anxiety
said it must be a past event
reluctantly returned to join those inside
waiting to start a séance
gathered standing around the very mark
unnaturally so very dark!
Then deep voices shuffling noises close by
the medium said hold hands
as from above the large open fire-place
a metallic clang and a sword
attached to the wall fell hitting the man
everybody panicked and ran!
Some frantically turned on their torches
scrabbling for the light switches
to find the body laying throat slashed
the weapon by his side
just as to the medium he had described it
now in disbelief did sit!
How had he predicted his own demise
within this historic inn
never visited before in his young life
was a mystery at this time
there were no answers to be found
or what evil was here bound!
