Presence!

Its ominous presence created a nightmare image

situated on land near the sea

a nuclear power station had been completed

but the cost spiraled out of control

dogged with mishaps many rumours had spread

filling the locals with dread!

 

Dark and dismal built on the site of an old house

that was reputedly haunted

this thought was enhanced when local employees

told of accidents from within

power surges water level leaks during inspection

on tests before the grid connection!

 

Blighted this facility that had not been welcomed

once it was known the plans

saw one building demolished and another progress

ringed by high security fences

overshadowing the pleasant nearby by community

that once was a people in unity!

 

But sides had now developed of divided viewpoints

some glad to have employment

others fearful of what lay within its sinister borders

not only from the radiation

an area filled with unexplained and haunted places

where there were no-go spaces!

 

All the opposition to the building had been discarded

completed then the day arrived

it went on-line nothing was mentioned of problems

threats to the locals were made

silence was forcibly maintained as the first mortality

occurred added to the sense of brutality!

 

Alarms were heard increasingly the employees jaded

reporting apparitions seen

bizarre noises and electronic equipment failing

with the risk  of a melt down

being privately owned everything was suppressed

until  it could no longer be repressed!

 

There was little warning of the catastrophic explosion

as the new dawn was breaking

the cooling water had drained and the core melted

trapping the night-shift within

contaminating the mains water supply and ocean

authorities until then had no notion!

 

Radioactive dust quickly engulfed the small township

and surrounding countryside

the outside world were thrust into this ensuing strife

grim remnants of another ruin

on cursed ground towered over them like a fiery beast

upon their souls to eternally feast!

 

Contaminated for thousand of years now guaranteed

hundreds died many more fated

a cause had not been determined an ongoing question

few dare enter this dead zone

those who have said nothing about their experiences

nor mentioned the many disappearances!

The Cruise Liner!

The cruise liner set sail on her maiden voyage

after many mishaps and accidents

that could not be easily explained as natural

or that several crew were missing

all the searches had failed to find any clues

not a problem in the owners views!

 

The truth was suppressed profit came first

their overheads were high

opting for a private detective  on board

to carry out a quiet investigation

he brought his fiance for help and support

in finding answers they sought!

 

Trouble started not long after leaving port

equipment was malfunctioning

passengers said their cabins were in a mess

everything inside thrown around

what could cause these unexplained events

their task becoming immense!

 

The evening set in a warm night was icy cold

one engine ceased to function

as Taylor and J’s cabin was on lower a deck

yet tapping and voices they heard

which seemed to be coming from far below

where only crew would go!

 

The detective gave a long worried stare at J

who had been researching

records of this luxury liner to find clues

discovering many fitments

were from another decommissioned ship

badly damaged on its last trip!

 

Now broken up it had a very bad history

and was thought of as cursed

records from further back were missing

this ship was almost a replica

for some reason the problem transferred

at first this did sound absurd!

 

They tried to make contact with the captain

who knew their identity

but the internal telephones didn’t work

then a violent shudder

threw them at the now open cabin door

falling into the corridor

 

Panic filled their minds yet it was too quiet

a lone woman was there

pale and sombre asked them to follow her

taking them downwards

But they had no intention of going that way

or with their lives they’d pay!

 

Somehow they arrived on the promenade deck

people were hanging over the side

lifeboats dangled as passengers scrambled

to get off this huge ship

like cartoon characters put on a drawn set

ghostly figures in silhouette!

 

Neither had an inkling of what was happening

a sensation it was behind (more…)
