Pondered!

He pondered why was the motorway empty

during the busy time of day

even the vehicles behind stopped overtaking

coming to a service area pulled in

but nobody was here the place void of life

not even his radio worked now

panic set in it was as though only he existed

into another dimension drifted!

 

Could see the entrance there was a brightness

felt compelled to walk to it

sensed no more fear or doubt as he advanced

focused on the building ahead

that was shimmering brought deep peace within

then realise he was no longer alone

smiling a young woman stood on his right side

at each other both seemed mystified!

 

On the busy motorway the carriageways blocked

emergency crews fighting to release

a young man from his crushed car and on its roof

in the ambulance a twenty something

woman lay unconscious intubated on a drip feed

but heart stopped now unresponsive

paramedics shaken as to her injuries did succumb

as this was not the expected outcome!

 

The male cut free placed him in a second ambulance

but his vital signs were faint

regrettably his heart to stopped and he was deceased

there had been no other casualties

with a sombre mood amongst all the attending crews

the scene was left for investigation

their bodies taken to the hospital pathology department

the paramedics for them both did lament!

 

Neither of them had any recollection of a fatal accident

as together held each others hand

the doors opened they stepped into pure serene light

before them a tunnel and glorious sound

filled with a peace glided in love and untainted delight

their souls freed they were heaven bound!

Soldier!

He sat alone in the train compartment

it was during war-time

the soldier was on leave from the army

had witnessed the abhorrence

of warfare and his friends lives ended

their funerals attended!

 

As he sat deep in thought became aware

in the seat opposite

by the window a frail looking woman sat

weeping very quietly

gasped certain nobody else was in there

this compartment to share!

 

The light was poor as it was the black out

how cold he now felt

sound of bombs dropping in the distance

already very stressed

could only stare at his unexpected visitor

that he could not ignore!

 

There was nowhere for him to run away

a no corridor train

on this old trundling commuter train

he was stuck here

did not fancy jumping onto the line

this decided to decline!

 

But suddenly the shape distorted

the face became clear

now saw the black eyes glaring

the once human features

changed into a grotesque outline

his sanity unable to define!

 

A loud scream like a banshee wail

made him reel away

running to the left locked door

pounding the glass

as it smashed his flesh was torn

shouting as if others to warn!

 

The train slowly screeched to a halt

station staff ran to his aid

upper body lay over the broken door

they helped him out

in the carriage nobody else was there

to them an odd affair!

 

Later in hospital his wounds tended

he was unconscious

eventually when he was able to speak

nothing could he recall

but in his mind the image did remain

thought was he going insane?

 

From then on felt a vile presence near!

Iron Gates!

It was a day trip to the big city

an adventure alone

sites to see an evening show

a voice in her head

guiding the girl like navigation

to an odd destination!

 

Outside two large iron gates

found herself stood

rusting and was there alone

she see the crowds

on the main road nearby

here wondering why?

 

Being summer it was daylight

behind an empty site

used over centuries for burial

shivered saw a figure

coming quickly in her direction

no time for reflection!

 

Though a cobbled stone street

heard no sounds

now approaching saw the face

monstrous it passed

walked right through the gates

wishing she had skates!

 

Scared seemed to be cornered

more shadowy figures

coming wearing dark cloaks

close behind a hearse

a procession into her view

the panic within grew!

 

Lined up at the iron gates

as if poised waiting

deep inside had memories

drawn to the hearse

there on the name plate

for her did wait!

 

That voice was her own

here they poised

to take her back home

being long dead

was ever a restless soul

often out of control!

 

Her spirit roamed streets

possessing women

just for a very short while

before once more

laying in the graveyard

where the dead guard!

 

The lady in white a legend

was often seen

had died of a broken heart

but nobody knew

that by invading the living

a short time reliving!

 

For years it was a mystery

by the iron gates

young unconscious women

were found slumped

with memory loss perplexed

and demeanor vexed!

 

The locals do not venture near

those iron gates so austere!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

Deserted!

The hour was very late gone midnight

as she headed down

to the deserted badly lit car park

situated under the offices

hated being there even when busy

always felt sick and dizzy!

 

Even the day of her interview uneasy

could not understand why

maybe the pungent smell or low ceiling

making her feel claustrophobic

or how every noise seemed amplified

to overcome this had tried!

 

Leaving the lift was always unpleasant

tried to get as near as possible

to save walking far when it was empty

yet never found those spaces

here she was yet again shaking in fear

always felt somebody was near!

 

Her heart beating so fast began to run

a bang echoed around

the large empty space reaching safety

got in locking the door

of her executive car calm and relieved

once more reprieved!

 

Behind a far pillar unseen by the woman

a human like shape

fully materialised and began to move

the lights flickered

she started driving confident it was fine

then saw it by the exit sign!

 

Distracted swerved into a supporting pillar

as the figure vanished

leaving her unconscious and trapped

security saw the car hit

but nothing else showed on their screen

another devastating scene!

 

But this was not the first incident recorded

happening several times before

always when staff left late but no clues

the others had perished

but this person was at present still alive

it was hoped would survive!

 

But this mystery was causing deep anxiety

amongst the workers

nobody wanted to use their spaces at night

in the hospital the lady

relived the horror in her comatose state

the doctors could only wait!

 

Noticed she was agitated vital signs erratic

the reason the spectre

had come into her thoughts she was not safe

the spirit attaching itself

to her soul allowing it to roam unhindered

an evil entity had returned!

 

All the others it had tried to enter had perished

but this one had lived

medical staff were amazed she had  recovered

from deep coma to release

within three days a miracle it was declared

for what was to come not prepared!

 

To the world a young woman left the hospital

unknown was possessed

by an evil spirit who had died in the prison

there on the site long ago

before the office block was built on the space

now his evil mankind would embrace!
