The happy family moved into the large house
on the edge of a lake
all were unaware until their teenage children
found a hidden overgrown well
first from a distance noticed the outline
at that time not able to define!
Behind tall weeds concealed was discovered
the relic emitting a sentient power
both felt it had to walk from the dire location
were afraid to tell their parents
of this startling undiscovered garden addition
that seemed in perfect condition!
For a while was forgotten as the house was fixed
to decorate and make theirs
being uninhabited for years before they found it
on a holiday the place a dream
with its supreme views and large lake location
space and liberation a great combination!
Nothing happened for some time life was good
they kept their distance
until the daughter saw lights darting about
flickering in a pattern
resisting the urge to go near just observed
yet her confidence unnerved!
Over the next few days the lights increased
as nobody else noticed them
began to feel it was only meant for her gaze
and a compulsion to explore
in her dressing gown on a bitterly cold night
went to peek like a ghost in white!
She was sleep walking in her mind could see
a girl waving so excitedly
a nice day she just wanted to meet and play
greeting as though friends
in reality nobody visible there she was alone
unprotected in a disaster zone!
The young girl’s face changed to sallow skin
dead eyes stared a victoria’s cry
the teenager awoke her soul fell into the well
her being sank into the dank water
gone now suppressed by the slimy green walls
nobody heard her Spiritual calls!
A different young woman went back inside
but to the family within
it was their beloved sister and daughter
the evil entity was reborn
new energy rejuvenating the decayed shell
the lid sealed the well!
