So Pale!

Admittedly a lot pints of beer was consumed

though he would not admit

that alcohol had addled his mind and vision

she did walk from the shadows

tall all in black so pale with blood on lips

dropping from her chin in drips!

 

Shocked tripped hit his head on a metal post

when he woke was there alone

friends searching found him helping home

here related what he saw

when earlier while passing the playground

turned when hearing  a sound!

 

Kept saying it was a vampire but they all laughed

he was classed as the fool

you were just drunk his mates said laughing

yet he was a terrified man

the bad dreams kept recurring each one worse

with him none would converse!

 

Afraid to leave his house after darkness descended

thinking maybe it was the drink

after months was persuaded to venture to a club

the encounters while sleeping

had stopped now sure it was in his imagination

just his own drunken creation!

 

With the intention to never being blotto again

the evening was uneventful

so good not to be the centre of fun any more

having just a couple of lagers

decided to leave early taking the same route

glad he went it was a hoot.

 

Nervous kept checking that nobody was about

tired quickly settled in bed

sleep came easy and then had an awful dream

the women was in the room

she came ever closer he was totally paralysed

waking it was now he realised!

 

This time it was happening the pain excruciating

but he could make no sound

the hauntingly attractive vampire stood wide

his blood around her mouth

it had been true his eyes glazed was this the end

not for him his body did transcend!

 

It went dark suddenly felt a surge woke painless

and a terrible thirst not for food

standing by him was the tall mysterious women

who took his hand it was good

leaving together she had chosen her latest mate

the blood lust could accelerate!

 

Those who doubted his sanity and integrity

with their lives would pay!

 

Now he was so pale!

Across Country!

At the time it seemed to us a brilliant idea

to drive across country

my girlfriend and I an adventure together

a week just the two of us

but it all changed at the mountain range

then things became strange!

 

Through winding roads trees became dense

as we searched for a motel

but the navigation signal had become poor

the weather deteriorated

with no choice but to pull off the empty road

as a tall object across it strode!

 

This we had not expected to see just up ahead

what human could be out here

in such an icy raging storm could it be a bear

that thought made us perturbed

huddled together knowing we must proceed

this was our pressing need!

 

The tyres started spinning as we pulled out

with its leave covered surface

panic began to over ride our calm persona

sounds neither had heard before

then a huge shape approached our position

getting away the only mission!

 

Just making the road as a large human face

peered through the front screen

as claws slashed the vehicles side with force

which nearly made me spin

thankfully keeping straight foot to the floor

never felt so scared ever before!

 

Driving until the gas had completely drained

we coasted downa  steep incline

as a serene lake and a hotel came into view

having to abandon the vehicle

seeing the slashed body panels as we walked

still it  felt we were being stalked!

 

Later speaking to the receptionist on desk duty

now in a fit state to speak

they said many others had similar stories to tell

and it fitted with the legends

of Big Foot the name the beast was fondly known

but violence never before was shown!

 

Thankfully the rest of the journey was uneventful

and we were alive the story to tell!
