Began!

Even approaching her electric car

that buzzing sound began

a powerful charge threw her back

bright specs of light darting

rapidly all around her visual field

to its power had to yield!

 

Stunned lay upon the dank tarmac

of the large car park

could not understand the cause

other shoppers helped

concerned at this unusual event

what was this torment?

 

Almost immediately it escalated

the electricity arced

connecting with lighting towers

plus cell like poles

that were closely situated nearby

birds fried flying by!

 

Patterns sparking above their heads

the charge crackled

smell of burning ozone as it ignited

as anything electrical

ceased to function and a grid created

a new power base activated!

 

From that day forth the vast population

filled with fear and damnation!

 

Surely this is only a nightmare scenario?

Early!

An early morning jog was the normal routine

left the house as the light awoke

before her partner had risen from slumber

taking her normal jogging route

but she never returned home upon that day

as her husband watched the driveway!

 

For the time they had been married worried

about the runs she always took alone

always assured him there was nothing to fear

notified the police she had not returned

a full search of the area was rapidly begun

the scale of the mystery would stun!

 

Over the months the husband was suspected

of abduction and his wife’s murder

but no connection or evidence could be found

so it was dropped he was shaken

feeling they did not really believe his account

as the pressure on his health did mount!

 

When reports of dozens more disappearances

emerged before his wifes and after

a different perspective to the enquiries ensued

more into a science fiction scenario

the possibility of alien abduction was cited

as world interest was ignited!

 

It was a rural area woods fields and farmland

strange lights and object had been seen

not until many had vanished was it connected

the plan to step up security and patrols

did not stop others going missing from sight

whether during the day or night!

 

No bodies were ever recovered or any contact

from the missing was recorded

an increase in sightings in the copse and land

of monsters or humanoid figures

unidentified craft filling the once clear skies

giving the expert a lot to analyse!

 

Those who dared came to seek out the riddle

as families had to come to terms

at the loss and not knowing what happened

or where their loved ones were

an ora of suspicion had pervaded this haven

beautiful unspoilt on the world blazon!

 

A medieval mood where a creeping malevolent

force invaded and nothing thrived

so it is to this day where the husband still waits

afraid like all the locals to leave

the relative safety of their houses in night hours

as its been taken over by dark powers!

Traffic Lights!

Traffic was flowing along the dual carriageway

as the driver approached the junction

lights turned to red so had to brake and stop

annoying to halt at this point

agitation rapidly grew they did not change

fifteen minutes passed very strange!

 

From every direction cars converged at speed

must be a computer malfunction

was the thoughts of those in the car queue

now unable to move anywhere

anger and tension mounted as car horns blared

for this situation nobody prepared!

 

Gradually they got out of their vehicles frustrated

with no explanation forthcoming

that first vibration made them almost lose balance

followed by the rumble of death

grew loud in their ears as earth and sky blended

the wrath of nature descended!

 

Or this was the expectation as the blackness grew

panic spread amongst the people

tremors made everything shake roads disintegrated

in this part of the world not expected

fields and sky seemed to blend was it world’s end

a site hard to comprehend!

 

Eventually their plight would be in perspective

nothing was recognisable

landmarks had disappeared fires were ignited

from far away explosions

people stumbled about not knowing what to do

and the atmosphere was rue!

 

Everything around him was now a raging blaze

a loud continuous noise

rapidly made him jump back into normality

the familiar nagging voice

ringing so loudly in his ears was the beloved wife

knew there was no real strife!

 

Sweating profusely found himself at the lights

it must have been a daydream

during a micro sleep they had turned green

motorists behind annoyed

the carnage seemed real still fresh in his mind

all bad thoughts realigned!

 

Started laughing happy all was chaotically well

his happy demeanor would not last

as all that befell the people in those dark images

back at that specific junction

each sequence of cataclysmic events had begun

that no man could outrun!
