The Journey!

That smile filled with a moment of relief

the journey long and arduous

from the horrors of war and occupation

tears gushed tension released

remembering the loss of their relations

now seeking new foundations!

 

Torn from the life they knew and loved

persecuted treated poorly

shattered lives forced to witness cruelty

and unspeakable acts

memories that would never be deleted

together never more defeated!

 

Both young and hopeful the couple gazed

from the ships upper deck

slowing as it entered the busy harbour

in their new homeland

gaunt and battle weary they embraced

as together the future faced!

Waved!

From the passenger deck the family waved

excitedly to their relatives

tears flowing on the dockside far below

their journey about to begin

a hard decision leaving so many behind

already for them pined.

 

Before long pulled away the course was set

the old country disappeared

soon over the horizon and picking up speed

as the temperature dropped

heading towards the freezing north Atlantic

aboard the luxury liner Titanic!

 

The parents full of optimism for their futures

an adventure set in motion

like hundreds aboard this magnificent ship

beginning its maiden voyage

but as life often is an unpredictable gamble

not always a pleasant amble.

 

While trying to settle their excited children

for at least a few hours sleep

high above upon an observation platform

lookouts through binoculars

saw large icebergs as they passed at speed

not slowing onward did proceed!

 

Unaware of  any risks passengers were relaxed

happy and confident it was safe

being told the ship was an unsinkable vessel

and their destination guaranteed!

suddenly there was a slight judder from below

a vibration that began to grow.

 

The clock on the wall in the upper deck cabin

clearly read twenty-three forty

their instincts told them something was wrong

a frantic knock on the door

and a stewards cry get to your lifeboat station

giving no further explanation!

 

A child each grasped tightly in their aching arms

found themselves in the crush

of panic-stricken passengers equally confused

scrabbling to reach the lifeboats

only to discover not enough had been provided

and families were divided!

 

Women and children the priority caused mayhem

fathers were left on the decks

elderly couples not wanting to be separated stayed

some single men tried to get in

being launched half full others tipped up in the sea

many jumped into to be free!

 

As it sank no rescue ships were within the vicinity

the happy couple were parted

the two children cried as they were being lowered

down onto the cruel icy sea

now it was their own father staring with a disbelief

waving trying to hide his grief!

 

Mother and children eventually were rescued

and reached their destination

but returned home their dream now shattered

never to see their father again

nor a young wife to see here beloved husband

without him now they would stand!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

 

That Smile

That smile will be with me forever

on the day it all went wrong

the two of us trying to be clever

our journey was too long

deciding to take a different trail

thus  must recount the tale!

 

That smile will be with me forever!

 

Desperate to try and save our marriage

after both drifting apart

had we passed that irreversible stage

our love was there a start

yet the tension high I drove far to fast

and our destinations cast!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Into a tree we rammed I was powerless

to avoid the collision

the anger had created this foolishness

shaping the final decision

my side was undamaged just shaken

realising I was mistaken!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Why had I been such a stubborn man

had shock awoken me

you the only one in my earthly plan

at first what I did not see

there hurt with that angelic smile

how bad I was in denial!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

Somehow got a signal to call assistance

talking more than before

why now could we seem to be consistent

doing my best to reassure

that any problems we would transform

our love overcame any storm!

 

That smile will be with me forever

 

As the rescue team arrived we tenderly kissed

such a magical moment

how such tenderness for so long I had missed

she had been to me sent

that smile I shall never forget or guilt fade

too late true feelings displayed!

 

She died from her injuries soon after!

That smile will remain with me forever!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

A Windy Morn!

It seemed so fitting a windy morn

saying goodbye to a friend

the draped coffin looked splendid

always kind words a smile

for him nothing bad ever said

he leaves a void instead.

 

For us all that moment will arrive

many avenues we tread

an allotted journey for each to face

reflecting on our time

some the trip is short full of pain

unable to take life’s strain!

 

Do we have a measured lifespan

when reached expire

joining our family’s in a heaven

souls reincarnated again

maybe ascend for infinity in space

part of natures atoms race!

 

Creating the ever-expanding universe

one day we each will know the truth!

 

Or is there simply nothing?

 

The Foureyed Poet.

The Waiting Room! (The Journey!)

To the long abandoned station five came

just as a storm was brewing

drawn into an unknown spiritual game

but what within was stewing

a malevolent entity lingered in this place

evil was gathering pace!

Older than earth’s ancient presence it lay

waiting for its victim’s to come

trapping their souls none could get away

enter Tilly and her mum

from a young age had an invisible friend

that was more than pretend!

Compelled to this location her age just twelve

destined to guide lost souls

into dark places and realms she would delve

guiding others in their roles

their journey unfolding in The Waiting Room

would they to be consumed?

She had come to drive the evil from here

to release these souls from within

a frightening start their aims now clear

at last the journey could begin!

The Journey!

The journey seemed to be dragging he was late

realising he should have flown.

The scenery was sparse turning to desert

as the sun began to set.

His vision obscured by such orange light

then something came into sight!

 

He swerved  his hired car into a sandy bank

coming to a sudden stop.

Shaken but unhurt and really concerned

had somebody he hit?

Getting out he scanned the dusty highway

nothing at all was on display.

 

Surprised there was no damage to the vehicle

after a rest carried on.

Several miles down the road saw a hitchhiker

was not keen to pick up.

But felt it unfair to leave them stranded here

with no townships near.

 

Also nice to talk to somebody for a short while

she got in and said thanks.

Though there was something different about her

they chatted a little.

Her complexion did strike him as very pale

as they continued on the trail.

 

After an hour came to a small filling station

fuel was getting low.

The girl didn’t get out and sat in the car

filled up and went to pay.

On his return the girl was nowhere to be seen

what had happened to the teen?

 

Going back to ask the assistant if she’d come in

but said nobody else had entered.

Giving a description of the girl he’d given a lift

the assistant nodded knowingly.

Telling him lots of drivers had told the same tale

of a young woman strange and pale.

 

There  was a hit and run a teenager was killed

the driver was never found.

A life that was taken so much unfulfilled

forever that road to pound!

 

He went on his way in disbelief she seemed so real

and sad at such a young life lost!

Desert Trip!

A couple on holiday in Las Vegas city

decided to hire a car.

And take a day trip into the vast desert

objects they hope to see.

Hearing much about the secret base

their journey gathered pace!

 

Racing away from the city excitedly

without expectation.

But hoping there could be a sighting

for them to remember.

Excited with the anticipation and fun

roof down enjoying the sun.

 

Near the perimeter of the vast area 51

their car came to a stop.

Thinking the fuel had actually run out

stuck on the hard shoulder.

Sitting taking in the shimmering view

as in the sky a dot of light grew!

 

Becoming aware of this pulsating object

closing in on their position!

No  noise could they hear as it got near

rapidly changing shape.

Then it was hovering above their heads

their nerves torn to shreds!

 

Now a reddish hue and an elongated form

they felt a searing heat.

It moved hovering above the sandy floor

for what seemed hours.

Afraid to move could only watch in awe

chilled to their bony core!

 

Within a blink it shot straight up and vanished

at an incredible velocity!

Their hired cars engine just started once more

in shock got out of there.

Their desire had unexpectedly been fulfilled

but this show had not been billed!

 

That day they were not the only witnesses

but no explanation was ever found!

I Once Belonged

I once belonged to a paranormal group

just wanting to see a spook!

Sitting for hours in buildings in the dark

even in a country park.

At first it was fun and a fantastic team

but now a faded dream.

 

Plenty of  investigations to get that thrill

but I am waiting still.

To see a single shadow or spectral entity

or was I too thick to see?

Being an ordinary guy the fun was gone

as technology came along.

 

From investigating as a tight working unit

technology became the remit.

And in the end I felt like a lone bystander

the equipment handler.

Unable to embrace the wonders of science

or its clever appliance.

 

It must have been seven years I was involved

the problems never resolved.

I shall miss travelling near and sometimes far

with anticipation in the car.

Hoping for a positive and rewarding result

a little proof sought.

 

With regret that period in my life has passed

but a wider net is now cast.

My interest in the paranormal is very strong

and new adventures I long!

 

Thus my personal journey carries on!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
