Diner!

Apart from the diner sign flashing on then off

all seemed the same as the sheriff

got out of his new patrol car for his breakfast

thought it quiet his gut twitching

not for food but always alerted him to a threat

it had never let him down yet!

 

Most of the vehicles he recognised as regulars

but old Tozer the owners dog

was not barking at anybody coming into park

on the radio tried to be discreet

in contacting for backup knew he should wait

the situation did not want to aggravate!

 

Unusual but could not get through to his office

his gut twisted even tighter

quietly released his shotgun from its mounting

would have to go in all alone

taking small steps headed for the rear entrance

strongly sensed a presence!

 

Rear door was open stepped over the threshold

expecting to find anything

nobody in the kitchen afraid to breathe explored

though it was a total mess

through to seated area uneasy could smell coffee

charred bacon but bodies could not see!

 

Food crockery and furniture strewn over the floor

as if it had been violently thrown

but the mirror behind the counter was undamaged

so were the panoramic main windows

knew he would have normally at this hour been here

but was delayed as on the road a stray steer!

 

Pondering what had caused this major crime scene

the radio crackled his heart jumped

it was the desk sergeant to inform him of a sighting

of a UFO in his present location

then communications gone once more frustrated

went back outside becoming agitated!

 

Looked upwards it was clear then heard the dog yelp

there was a large trailer close by

where the owner lived ran to the distressing sound

there the animal lay cowering

its neck bleeding from tugging at the choker chain

petrified so pitiful and inhumane!

 

Where the animal was gazing he could see an object

shimmering blinding him in the sunlight

raising his weapon started towards the silvery shape

knew its must be what had been reported

a hum was noticeable his head seemed to explode

found himself in the craft mind on overload!

 

At that moment the desert ambience was shaken

by sirens of a police convoy

that soon arriving at the diners remote location

circling it greeted by silence

just as the sheriff had discovered it damaged

as if somebody the place rampaged!

 

Found the dog to whimpering staring at something

close by a discarded shotgun

unusual markings where an object had landed

standing unsure at what to do

when several unmarked helicopters descended

at that contact their involvement ended!

 

They were politely asked to leave now in military

jurisdiction escorted from the scene

could only be bystanders left to speculate the cause

their colleague another victim

how far did the veracity go in this massive deceit

very soon head to head they would meet!

Holiday Cabin!

First night on holiday was always exciting

this year was different

she had come ahead alone not so inviting

here early with good intent

mum and daughter due tomorrow night

being alone did not seem right!

 

Had come ahead early she had an extra day

wanted to see her daughter Kate

had been at university soon be here to stay

for two weeks could not wait

never been here before wanted to prepare

of any danger was not aware!

 

Busy getting holiday cabin how she wanted

soon darkness had come

felt tired never thought it could be haunted

to exhaustion had succumb

decided to have an early and restful sleep

anything else to the morning keep!

 

Not use to being in the countryside all alone

or cabin with panoramic view

had forgotten her mobile and no house phone

here alone anxiety grew

now for the first time began to feel uneasy

stomach churning was queasy!

 

As she came out of the bathroom she saw

through the bedroom window

the shape of a figure she could not ignore

yelling her actions slow

froze but then in an instant it had gone

for the morning did so long!

 

Unable to relax ran around to check doors

making sure they were locked

terrified felt sweat oozing from her pores

her well-being totally rocked

as if circling heard loud footsteps near

echoing in her ears so clear!

 

Many thoughts racing through her mind

were all the windows locked

would her child mums lifeless body find

now feeling deeply shocked

cowering in the corner behind the settee

wondering who it could be!

 

Creaking wooden boards surrounded her

scraping along the walls

with some object the fear within did stir

also across the glass

high-pitched a shadow passed as well

followed by a nasty smell!

 

Exhausted eventually fell into a half sleep

awaking with a start

the rising sun into the cabin began to peep

her fast beating heart

stiff where she had not moved needed a wee

parched so wanted a cup of tea!

 

The birds were singing loudly she ventured out

one shaky step at a time

afraid to make a sound in case it was still about

she was alive felt sublime

two joggers went by staring then running past

it was safe she thought at last!

 

Venturing onto the veranda now could see why

the couple moved away so fast

deep cuts in the wood and word reading die

she could only stare aghast

it covered the exterior in a place so serene

this horror did not fit the scene!

 

A familiar voice relieved she quickly turned

her daughter stood concerned!

 

She left with her family never to return here

something watched them go so very near!

From The House!

From the house under the shadow of the hill

the couple lived there

for several years looked to the grassy slopes

having an inexplicable dread

that one day something to fear would descend

with no hope to defend!

 

Together on its summit had contentedly sat

enjoying panoramic views

open grass lands where sheep lazily grazed

everything in perfect place

then the natural order seemed to prevail

nobody believed their tale!

 

They went on looking and waiting for the event

as others simply ignored them

after that first slight tremor they both knew

the moment had arrived

on a bright day the sky began to go very dark

a date humans would mark!

 

The premature darkness passed as the huge craft

came slowly over the hill

their years of fear realised the invasion was here

most panicked and fled

waves of small craft then spewed out from within

mans nightmare would soon begin!

 

As the first casualties and explosions began to happen

below the nice small house

a new life began they had prepared for this eventuality

settling in their fitted bunker

where both stayed safe and unharmed until they died

the enemy the couple had defied!

 

Above the shattered world overrun by alien marauders

disintegrated as the enemy moved on!
