Automatic Doors!

The automatic doors swung open and then closed

nobody entered the shop

or so the shopkeeper thought glancing across

yet a customer observed

a transparent shape the premises did penetrate

the image in her mind did infiltrate!

 

As a few others shopped browsing in the store intently

no interaction but music playing

she focused her gaze particularly on the middle aisle

as items seemed to levitate

then just drop gently to the floor with an echoing thump

that only made her jump!

 

Backed away alarmed against the main counter with force

knocking over a large display

now drawing the managers complete angry attention

at this unexpected disruption

was unable to explain the mess or behaviour in any way

did not know what to really say!

 

Nobody else had witnessed anything nor shape did see

had fallen over got up apologising

people gathered confused tightly around her petite frame

was feeling so embarrassed

the fact that the goods were strewn around was ignored

with them all only felt discord!

 

Before her saw clearly the shape coming towards them

as it came to a high stack of beans

they crashed to the floor making everybody scatter

then as it entered so it left

through the automatic doors now not the only witness

following her gaze there became a stillness!

 

The atmosphere became unsettled as the doors opened

then closed yet nobody was close by

on examination of the security footage a shape was seen

and the items falling to the floor

but no explanation was determined of how it occurred

a suggestion of ghosts was thought absurd!

 

The woman knew it was true and set out to find out more

as life went on but shoppers were weary now in the store !

Apartment!

No matter how many times he told them

somebody was in his apartment

the police searched and found nothing

in the end he was treated crazy

until neighbours reported a fracas there

finding his body dead on a chair!

 

There was the sign of disruption everywhere

items thrown around the room

the body was unmarked but looked scared

as if he had died of fright

eyes wide open the mouth to as if yelling

why for now no telling!

 

It was an old tenement building in the area

used by countless people

since it was constructed a century before

frequented by gangsters

inevitably a brothel of unseen degradation

for the girls a living damnation!

 

But in recent times converted as a residency

for the elderly of the city

there had been complaints from other tenants

but thought the first mortality

with no clues to what had happened within here

but unnatural was clear!

 

The rooms were cleared and then redecorated

ready for the next tenant

it was not until the lady who had just retired

had settled in she noticed

odd sounds like somebody tapping somewhere

saw someone sat in her armchair!

 

Unnerved by this enquired with her neighbours

told her about the deceased man

being open-minded she tried not let it linger

that was until later that night

waking to find a hunched figure sat on the bed

this really filled her with dread!

 

The buildings owners only wanted rent money

without any interest in problems

the stories of ghosts just a disgruntled tenant

until this corpse was found

played down the situation after all he was old

their total attitude cold!

 

The retired tenant a few days later pack a bag

walked out leaving everything

never said anything but was seen to leave

looking confused and frail

all her clothes and personal effects deserted

by something pressure exerted!

 

The strange occurrences spread to the corridors

even visitors were knocked down

and some were dragged by an unknown force

this was caught on a camera

that had been put there as a human detector

not to catch a ghostly spectre!

 

Residents stayed in their own space it continues

nobody talked about it much

the apartment had to be cleared once more

now no tenant stayed long

the noises screams and bangs eventually ignored

but the phenomena soured!

 

After a very violent occurrence action was taken

a paranormal group was contacted

it was well reported some fled in pure terror

one disappeared the other

for months had resided on a psychiatric unit

what was here so evil and illicit?

 

This has yet to be assessed as none would tell!
