Far Below!

Like ants scurrying life went on far below

while several miles in the sky

an airline pilot knew there was a problem

the passengers were aware

after the shudder and bangs occurred

the assurances all were absurd!


Fear was etched on the air stewards faces

as the plane rapidly lost elevation

both the pilots struggling to regain control

passengers to filled with dread

oxygen masks came rapidly into their view

another bang as left engine blew!


Alarms sounded it was heading for the ground

no panic yet an expectation

nor screams or crying but a disturbing calm

each felt this their final destination

emergency crews ready at the nearby airport

impacting runway that was too short!


Crashing onto the tarmac at too high a speed

metal grating as plane ripped apart

fuel igniting spilling out of ruptured tanks

fire truck ready with foam spray

those inside waited for broken plane to stop

heading for a sheer drop!


With inches to spare the plane came to rest

now a raging fire people still alive

rescuers there to save to help survivors

fearing the worst they strived

to quell the savage flames and get them out

had anybody lived there was doubt!


For some astounding reason all were spared

now and forever a bond they shared!


The cause of the near disaster yet to be determined!





Special Day!

That special day has finally arrived

plans made hoping all is well

beginning of our adventure together

preparations completed ready

a nervous groom waits for his bride

standing nowhere to hide!


Soon she will walk down the aisle

two people to be joined

music starts to play nerves are taut

relieved as she is here

now together for that moment stand

promises a kiss hand in hand!


Behind family and friends sit watching

now smiles on your faces

turning to congratulations and praises

signing the register married

feeling of relief cameras start clicking

your married the clock is ticking!


Realising now two families are united

everybody happy and delighted

their perfect love match and marriage

or divorce hate then disengage!


The Foureyed Poet.



Returning to that special spot we cherished

this time on my own

that romantic and magical day together

by the tiny riverside cafe

there proposed to the only girl in my life

to be my loving wife!


Only anguish greeted me at what was here

nothing remained of our dream

rubble and new town filled the rural scene

acres of lush grass and trees

obliterated by busy noisy polluted highways

gone those quaint byways!


My pressures lady had passed away recently

she would have been dismayed

to see destruction of rural land lost forever

that memory had lived in us

of that enchantment in our hearts those years

brought me to shed rare tears!


Bringing her ashes to scatter at our paradise

which now existed no more

returning to our once happy fun-filled home

to keep them close to heart

so she was always near me her love to share

even when our children were there!


The Foureyed Poet.



At fifteen thought life was fun an adventure

as she entered the church

behind her parents they were on holiday

her sister followed behind

from a young age heard voices in her head

knew they were of the dead!


For a while suppressed the sounds in her mind

but within the ancient building

had started again echoing from every angle

her parents had no idea

but had to confide with her younger sibling

knowing trouble it may bring!


Wanted to get out yet for the first time saw

what looked liked a woman

knew was not really there felt compelled

to approach and listen

such a soft voice speaking lonely and sad

for somebody to hear so glad!


Before she could approach her parents called

glancing back she had gone

for a moment heard nothing until a loud cry

as the ghost was by her side

that asked to be free from her perpetual hell

overwhelmed had a fainting spell!


It was a surprise to find herself laying down

sitting up her parents concerned

sat beside her grinning sister had to stand

then turned running to the exit

as even more voices shouted within her head

clearer she caught the thread!


Trapped souls were seeking her help to be free

away from the growing evil

let them go on into the internal peace and light

yet amongst the constant noise

knew there was a darkness growing all around

that was earth-bound!


Inwardly panicked began to drain her spirituality

as the woman once more

came speaking calmly now with an angelic glow

realised it was an angel here

to guide this young adult with her special role

to save each lost and lonely soul!


Yet still had a place on the earth with a loving family

to give her strength and support

in a harsh and ever-growing violent material society

where she found the love and joy

now she was able to see and understand true grace

so the future now could face!


The Foureyed Poet.






When he had murdered his latest victim the killer

left them to be easily found

calmly he smiled leaving without conscience

making sure he was not in vision

frustrating the police forces leaving no clues

nothing on which to peruse!


Cunning and meticulous in methods of murder

certain never to be caught

finding his next victim he watched the woman

get into an expensive car

driving off the forecourt of a luxury apartments

intent on her life to dispense!


Already knew her routine parked in the car park

in the office block she worked

he knew where the security cameras were placed

as she got out attacked her

but knowing self-defence broke from his tight grip

then on an oily patch did slip!


Falling and hitting her head on a concrete pillar

guessed would not wake again

the murderer angry he had failed drove away

leaving her there to pass alone

still sure nothing was left to be incriminating

in his callous mind debating!


As he disappeared from the horrendous scene

though the body lay motionless

the spirit of the woman stood over herself

for a while unable to comprehend

what happened to her as the darkness cleared

and blankness disappeared!


She had to avenge her own pointless death

and remove this evil being

the hardest part leaving her earthly body

she felt somebody was near

with no limits of mobility started the quest

and the killer to infest!


It was hard this was not her physical body

there were no boundaries

though alone sensed an unseen force close

there was a growing  rage

able to move at will knowing he was near

heard screams very near!


Like coming out of a mist into clear light

in woodland saw the beast

bent over a cowering girl about to strike

arm raised knife in hand

how could she stop this murderess spree

shouting he turned to see!


Now looking shaken he stared then just ran

following him screamed

scared stopped at the edge of an overhang

you died in the car park

realising her image was discernible to him

his expectations were grim!


For the first time he was the helpless victim

the spirit moved forward

then the beast lost its balance plummeting

down into a disused well

at that moment found herself  back in pain

within her body how insane!


Still in the  car park but now on a stretcher

being transported to hospital

had it all been in her imagination puzzled

before the doors shut tight

saw a man waving seemingly unobserved

something special had occurred!


A petrified woman entered the police station

to report her abduction

and tell them a very strange tale of a miracle

of how she was going to die

when the attacker suddenly stopped and ran

like he was a possessed man!


The Foureyed Poet.



That Glance

That glance he had not seen for so long

it was rather good

foolish he thought smiling his face red

that a young woman

could make him feel being wanted again

yet knew had to refrain.


It was only kindness and a polite gesture

this was his way

of combating the loneliness that filled him

simple interaction

gave hope to boost that emptiness inside

he still had pride.


That glance a smile that moment remained

within his memory

no unkind or lustful thoughts but well-being

he could interact

maybe one day he would find a special friend

his loneliness to end!


The Foureyed Poet.
