Gathered!

The scientists gathered there to celebrate

with that satisfying smirk

their experiment was a certain success

or this was their conclusion

even though it was uncharted research

on a precipice man did perch!

 

As they celebrated nobody had noticed

one of their colleagues missing

last seen at the atomic particle collider

with the rest laughing hysterically

soon they noticed a strip of piercing light

their egos it would soon blight!

 

As a monstrous beast did enter our realm

seemingly through a portal

they had created the woman to disappear

it was assumed taken within

upon this world what had they unleashed

that devoured humans for its feast?

 

No more did they celebrate but soon fled

their reckless thirst for knowledge

had gone too far jeopardising all humanity

exploring what was not meant to be

spawned written on ancient tablets of stone

prophecy of beasts from the unknown!

 

End of days for the multitude of humankind

rise of an unspeakable evil

that has been thought of only as tales of doom

stories to fear but not real

been triggered by the nave scientific breed

who the warnings never did heed!

 

Has this happened or just a conspiracy theory?

Human Remains!

Their first house a small terraced property

two up and two down

how the young couples eyes brightly lit up

when the estate agent

happily told them their offer was accepted

this they had not unexpected.

 

Within three days had started the decorating

to make it their very own

not being expert at any of the structural work

an uncle  was a builder

offered to do anything that needed to be done

thinking this an easy run!

 

Problems started while removing the fireplace

in the back downstairs room

as this was pulled out a skeleton was discovered

and work came to a halt

dust filled the air and the smell was very bad

ran outside to breath so  glad.

 

Calling the police decided to wait until they came

not wanting to go back

when they arrived  needed to be shown the spot

but nothing was there

no human remains were anywhere in the rubble

now there would be trouble!

 

Wasting police time was the curt warning given

after a fruitless search left

nothing was found feeling stupid went inside

shaken but ready to continue

only to find the bones were  back in fire-place

but now with flesh on the face!

 

That moment of achievement had dissipated

deciding they had to go

unsure of what could be done at this minute

it was a bizarre situation

the authorities would not come here  again

they all decided to remain!

 

Thier uncle grabbed an arm quickly recoiling

as a strange dark substance

covered his hand was absorbed by the skin

all the while flesh was growing

on the remains trying to help their uncle out

felt their sanity in doubt!

 

He became so heavy unable to hold anymore

falling his pallor turning grey

knowing he was dead themselves had to save

the lounge door slammed shut

before the two now weary and frantic got there

a noise the tension hard to bear!

 

Shouting out for help the door could not be opened

nobody came reluctantly turned

helpless both held hands as before them it stood

those human remains covered

in a slimy flesh now walking towards them upright

it seemed a terminal plight!

 

The young husband in desperation threw his wife

out of the glass filled window

cut and bruised saw him grabbed and disappear

crying realised he was gone

as the beast looked out she knew it was the start

with no choice but to depart!

 

But it was curiosity that overcame the fear to run

struggling to the broken window

stared inside the bodies of her husband and uncle

were shrivelled on the floor

nothing else could she see what had they unleashed

some new horrendous beast!

 

As the neighbours started to emerge at the disturbance

wondering what could happen next

the now widow had to get away from this awful  scene

knowing the shocking truth

had to convince somebody of what danger was ahead

before she and many others were dead!

Morgue!

It seemed an inexplicable place even for the dead!

 

Grave yard shift was never the favourite to get

even to the senior technician

he could easily recall many strange events

but on this particular shift

it would change his conception of reality

that none could foresee!

 

The only morgue in the small state county

based in the town hospital

always busy yet this night unusually quiet

then a telephone message

telling them a corpse was to be delivered

for some reason both shivered!

 

Just two on duty upon this dreaded shift

and five silent guests

one lay under a white sheet for an autopsy

early the coming morn

the new arrival would upset the ambience

the pressure becoming intense!

 

Around mid night the swing doors burst open

their new guest wheeled in

quickly placed in the allotted storage fridge

awaiting the duty pathologist

no details given even the paper work lacking

unanswered questions stacking!

 

That oppressive awareness began to mutate

retreating to the rest room

for a well-earned break at the mid night hour

soon a tapping sound heard

reverberating like a drum through corridors

their conversation on pause!

 

It stopped for a while then started once more

like a fist knocking on a door

reluctantly decided to investigate the source

as the noise wearily persisted

both re-entered the dimly lit autopsy room

they glared into the gloom!

 

Just as it went quiet again standing shaking

nothing looked disturbed

relieved turned there was a very loud bang

ran to the doorway before

daring to see it was the fridge open wide

the one with the body inside!

 

Neither of them wanting to move nearer

but were curious to view

even in the blue-tinted night lighting

could see the tray empty

on the tiled floor the abandoned body bag

along with the name tag!

 

Where had it gone more knocking began

it was definitely in front

uncertain of what was actually happening

headed for the only exit

could not escape their door passes failed

within their work place jailed!

 

Plunged into darkness something approached

as the emergency lighting

came on they were confronted by a woman

in her chest a gaping wound

how could she be alive the last words expelled

as to the ground were felled!

 

One managed badly wounded to crawl away

hitting the fire alarm button

waking in the casualty unit shaken in pain

but certain he was still alive

chaos surrounded him and he knew why

the thing that could not die!

 

It had escaped what had been unleashed on society

He suddenly began to feel unwell!
