Surrounded!

They surrounded the bed where their mother lay

like vultures waiting for the victim to expire

gasping for breath faces becoming more clouded

within was at peace her life had been good

not wanting any family and friends to feel sadness

memories to be good not linger or depress!

 

Certainly not left with no love ones to give comfort

not in a dark dank slum or leaking tent

was in her own warm comfortable and familiar bed

a figure dressed in white glowed nearby

her husband to smiled patiently waiting in shadow

recall flowed like a slide show!

 

Not young satisfied she had no regrets or bad secrets

there for the children and grandchildren

her daughter sat holding mothers hand tightly so cold

peace filled that bedroom eyes closed

breathing stopped as her soul left the vessel at last

she was now part of history past!

 

Holding the man she had married and left far to soon

took one more gentle gaze at the family

then guided by the angel through that brilliant light

those present sensed she had passed on

praying over the empty body they loved so very dear

in unity they would forever be near!

Android!

He evaluated his future how this body ached

knowing death was very near

time was not a friend but a nagging enemy

even his plan was complicated

surrounded by computer screens and android

at this moment life was void!

 

Not for him the cryogenics route to being frozen

not the body or even the head

his aim was to transfer his mind into a robot

had to be reliable to his design

that moment was at last within his embrace

as he looked at the young face!

 

Had to admit it this body was a true likeness

of himself at twenty-two

this was exciting knowing he would not decay

with no human frailties

living on without the limitation of human time

would remain in his prime!

 

It was a risk but was resigned if he expired

at least knew he had tried

being frail it was hard to connect the wires

could not share his secret

hated the so-called friends that mocked him

his view of them was dim!

 

Smiled it made his face even more grotesque

next to the still perfect android

both connected to computers and each other

with a bony decaying finger

struggled to hit the enter key then it began

executing his mind transference plan!

 

His body writhed as his memories and essence

were drained the computers flashed

leaving the empty corpse upon the leather chair

for a few minutes nothing moved

the light show stopped and death was present

his mind and body was spent!

 

Realisation that he was alive in some capacity

took a few minutes to register

for the first time the android rotated its head

the scientist transfer a success

slowly standing up coordination was unsteady

it would be awhile before he was ready!

 

How extraordinary no pain his thoughts clear

with a new perfect vessel

no fear of ageing or human functions to impair

after disposing of his own corpse

could start his new life nothing to hold him back

he would make sure the future was black!

 

The taxi he had just rang for arrived swiftly

awkwardly the young man got in briskly

nothing could ever be the same for us again

with the creators malevolent destructive reign

now into androids a mind could be transferred

the notorious this method would be preferred!

 

Immortality had come for whom could pay the price!

Soldier!

He sat alone in the train compartment

it was during war-time

the soldier was on leave from the army

had witnessed the abhorrence

of warfare and his friends lives ended

their funerals attended!

 

As he sat deep in thought became aware

in the seat opposite

by the window a frail looking woman sat

weeping very quietly

gasped certain nobody else was in there

this compartment to share!

 

The light was poor as it was the black out

how cold he now felt

sound of bombs dropping in the distance

already very stressed

could only stare at his unexpected visitor

that he could not ignore!

 

There was nowhere for him to run away

a no corridor train

on this old trundling commuter train

he was stuck here

did not fancy jumping onto the line

this decided to decline!

 

But suddenly the shape distorted

the face became clear

now saw the black eyes glaring

the once human features

changed into a grotesque outline

his sanity unable to define!

 

A loud scream like a banshee wail

made him reel away

running to the left locked door

pounding the glass

as it smashed his flesh was torn

shouting as if others to warn!

 

The train slowly screeched to a halt

station staff ran to his aid

upper body lay over the broken door

they helped him out

in the carriage nobody else was there

to them an odd affair!

 

Later in hospital his wounds tended

he was unconscious

eventually when he was able to speak

nothing could he recall

but in his mind the image did remain

thought was he going insane?

 

From then on felt a vile presence near!

Aware!

An odd sensation was all she was aware

a pain and the darkness

awoke suddenly alone in her apartment

as if from a deep sleep

everything seemed exactly as before

yet different was so sure!

 

On the large settee she found herself laid

adjusting her blurred vision

her pet dog came to lick the hanging hand

but never felt the sensation

concerned sat up it was then she realised

life had been deprived!

 

Her body was on the settee white and still

yet she seemed so real

the dog slowly backed away as if in fear

her husband came in

from a night shift and to her side ran

a tired shattered man!

 

She had loved him now could not touch

only watch as he tried

to revive the woman he had just wed

phoning for an ambulance

in shock laid beside her loudly praying

their pet with a ball playing!

 

Paramedics came very quickly with aid

watching expecting the light

her husband holding their fluffy pet dog

hearing every word they said

both tried everything to start the heart

not wanting her forever to part!

 

Surely it was too late life had now passed

but a weird sensation

more pain a deep breath and a gentle kiss

a warm hand gentle breath

knowing she was back alive and not alone

really hearing his soft tone!

 

Upon a stretcher drips in arms on oxygen

heading to the medical centre

heard a voice an image of her dead father

faintly saying not your time

my precious child but I am always near

later was certain she did hear!

 

Eighteen months seemed to have flown by

their dreams had come true

back in hospital for birth of their child

the problems now melted away

happily over time her strength grew

incredibly life had begun anew!
