Bugs?

As the car passed the historic building

surrounded by scaffolding

the driver was certain something huge

hovered amidst the structure

an orange glow from the street lights

formed an eerie pattern

that resembled a giant spider outline

its tentacles the poles did entwine!

 

Mesmerized hit a stationary parked car

air bags inflated felt the jolt

shaken they got out fearful of sighting

nobody seemed to be around

the three stood huddled then a clatter

as scaffolding began to fall

a shape dropped to the street close by

on instinct would have to rely!

 

Decided to exit certain the area was unsafe

whatever the object seen

knew it was an imminent danger to them

through an alley they ran

hopefully were making their way to safety

but came upon devastation

another arachnid scaled down a stone wall

making them feel significantly small!

 

Below a large crowd of revelers were dancing

before they could give a warning

it was upon them and many were devoured

from behind heard anguished cries

where had these things come from evaluated

as high above the sky lit up

filled with a flaming roaring meteor shower

they diverted into the high office tower!

 

Out of breath reached the top of the block

forcing open the fire escape

scrambled onto the flat roof nowhere to go

a panoramic view of the chaos

the sky was alight and fire rose from below

they witnessed the coming

of intelligent bugs swarming as fighter jets

for them no time for regrets!

 

Approaching them on the roof a huge bug

swiftly followed by missiles

the building exploded catapulting the three

into free fall this was their end

inexplicably there was a canal down below

and though from a great height

survived the hard impact hitting mud bank

then all just went blank!

 

Awoke freezing and dazed as the action raged

soldiers were around them

soon they were found and taken to a safe area

where some tale was conveyed

told the population could only be protected

if they remained in chosen districts

as authorities pursued ways of eradicating

an enemy to humans devastating!

 

It would be a long time before the people knew

the real truth of the invaders

as what is visible to our senses and is so real

the facts from us all they did conceal!

Strike Twelve!

Could hear a distant clock strike twelve midnight

it was now the new year of 2019

all around the explosions and colour of fireworks

she had drunk a lot but felt feisty

just slapped a friend who had become too familiar

it was an annual celebration

seeing in another year with all her school mates

reminiscing laughs and debates!

 

But this time a distinct uncomfortable atmosphere

had to get out of the noisy party

she found herself wondering dark country lanes

it was not frightening alone at first

until the fireworks had ended becoming so quiet

being a town dweller the countryside

was unfamiliar territory without a coat was cold

scared wanted somebody to hold!

 

She could hear strange noises and animals sounds

she guessed that was the explanation

had aimlessly wondered moving away from the party

unaware something nearby was stalking

the cold began to make her shiver clearing the mind

snow began to fall coming to a halt

turned to go back as a spider-like creature descended

from the trees feared her life had ended!

 

Instinct and adrenaline gave her strength and power

ran into a field visibility being near zero

tripping and scratching herself staying by the hedge

could sense it was following close by

how could it grow to such a huge size pondered

to scared dared not look behind

saw a light prayed it was where she had walked out

now filled with panic and doubt!

 

There was no sounds that had become so very loud

reached the garden wall climbed over

scraping both legs to escape the thing chasing her

in pain and bleeding got to the rear door

yes this was the place but now no drunken revelers

going inside the spider had caught up

Just managed to close it thought this thing contained

but a tentacle pierced her skull brain was drained!

 

Awoke shouting her boyfriend trying to calm her down

its alright C J another of those nightmares

never known you to have so many whats on your mind

settling down covered in sweat so real

shaking it off ignored his question but was concerned

having a cup of coffee got a text from a friend

inviting her to a New Years Eve party in the countryside

quickly accepting to her friend replied!

 

For a few moments shuddered thinking of that nightmare

just a coincidence no such thing as giant-spiders out there!
