Descend!

Felt very nervous as the airliner approached

the large busy international airport

relieved that we had all survived the ordeal

the other passengers also shaken

but the ordeal was certainly far from its end

as the aircraft began to descend!

 

A long haul flight from a popular destination

started as another routine trip

three hundred passengers happily got on board

filled with many different thoughts

sitting with the usual hassle and lots of chatter

now every moment for them did matter!

 

Arriving ten hours late at its European destination

fuel was at a critically low-level

had seen the silver metallic object at close quarter

flying closely along side the plane

that sharp turn as the pilots tried to avoid a collision

just missing with luck or precision!

 

Then the violent bang as eventually they impacted

luggage and passengers thrown

through the cabin with a destructive turbulent force

leaving many injured and petrified

but worse was to come when we fell from the skies

cabin pressure gone the awful cries!

 

The captain sounded calm as he warned us all

of the collision and rapid fall

telling us to brace ourselves the staff assisted

oxygen masks dropped into sight

as the end of our lives seemed an inevitability

totally exposing our vulnerability!

 

Our fate was certainly not in any human hands

as an engine burst into flames

and we all were thrust to the right as a voice

came emotionless over the intercom

to prepare for impact then we hit the runway

as spiritual came into play!

 

There was no fuel left we had recently been told

the only reason we did not fry

as it broke into two pieces the screaming stopped

the grating noise of metal on tarmac

pounded our bodies and minds we must perish

leaving those behind we cherish!

 

From utter despair and acceptance of our demise

the craft was now at a standstill

somehow the crew managed to open the doors

emergency shoots quickly deployed

and if by magic we were in the main terminal

battered shaken but relief discernible!

 

There had been no fatalities but many injured

as we all sat and stood dazed

men in black suits came with armed soldiers

confronted us with an ultimatum

that what had happened was an engine fault

a tragedy in which you were caught!

 

This would be in the official report to follow

if anybody veered from this line

they would visit them the consequences grave

with that clear threat departed

even though we knew it was a metallic UFO

the outside world would never know!

 

Defying their warning was determined to tell

now in fear listened for the doorbell!

Boarded Up!

The pub had been a land mark for centuries

but economic times hit hard.

Listed yet it closed as trade became poor

but a few weeks after closure.

Boarded up on the ground floor for security

hoping to make it vandal free!

 

Though it always had a history of odd events

while a popular venue.

The interior was original and still remained

from the fifteenth century.

Yet reports on going near it had an eery feel

a presence your sanity to steal!

 

A police cruiser came and stopped outside

the building seemed undisturbed.

Though the officers did walk the perimeter

being part of their patrol.

Both looked up to check the upper floor

each confirming a figure they saw!

 

Uncertain of exactly what they had witnessed

now committed to investigate.

Thinking the key to the padlock was required

approaching the entrance.

Concerned finding it open lock on the ground

they’d not heard a sound!

 

Cautiously entering to search the entire place

after deciding it was deserted.

Not a single intruder found within the walls

yet somehow didn’t feel alone.

Glad when finished made sure it was secure

not wanting to go in for more!

 

Before they left had to take another glance

again they saw an image.

Clearer resembling a woman staring down

from the same bedroom.

But as it was there soon no longer in sight

they drove into the night!

 

Dreading the report they’d have to write

logically it couldn’t be right!

 

Ghosts don’t exist! Do they?

The Operation!

Jenny was very anxious on that Thursday

her operation was due.

Though was told it was a routine procedure

it didn’t ease the nerves.

Her husband sat by her side as they waited

every second here she hated!

 

The wait ended as a nurse and porter arrived

to take her to theatre.

She was anaesthetised falling into a deep sleep

and prepared for surgery.

As the surgeons proceeded worries were eased

with their progress pleased.

 

But halfway through inexplicably it went wrong

alarms indicating problems.

Calmness turned from concern to urgent action

she went into cardiac arrest!

As the team fought to start her young heart again

expressions showed the strain!

 

The turmoil continued to save her from early death

awake found herself rising.

Feeling she was  floating out-of-body looking down

seeing doctors fighting below.

Heard them talking yet could not tell she was well

their worries to expel!

 

Jenny now feeling warm calm and extremely happy

as like a spy camera gazed.

Hoping that euphoric sensation would never end

as defibrillator paddles applied!

Her body shuddered back in her body once more

in pain and so sore!

 

At that precise  moment her heart had started to beat

and they aborted the operation.

But thankful they had brought Jenny back to life

and listened later in disbelief!

As she related in detail what she had seen and heard

scientifically hard to believe a word!

 

In truth there are so many unexplained accounts

that make you wonder is there life after death!
