Lady In Blue!

She was alone in silence by the bar

this was what witnesses said

who frequented this ancient inn

thought to be a woman murdered

centuries ago in a sordid history

where travellers were robbed

then were quickly eliminated

while they slept in the bed!

 

It was popular with investigators

who often spent many days

with equipment set up to seek out

the truth if it was to be found

of hauntings in the spooky hostelry

filled with a dark hostility!

 

Regulars had become used the events

of glasses being violently thrown

furniture moving seemingly unaided

few said they had seen spirits

the Lady in Blue or was it the alcohol

as it happened after nightfall!

 

Many came to explore the phenomena

some say they caught voices

or recorded odd shapes within the dark

but the footage was not clear

glass falling on security camera caught

made the hunt for spectres fraught!

 

Many do feel other realms surround us

more groups and television shows

seek that indisputable evidence of proof

but what is fact and what is fiction

when a deceased soul has been reached

and proof has been confirmed

maybe my sceptical open-minded bias

will make my outlook more pious!

 

I observe this society and await that moment!

Here!

Would never have taken the security post

had he known it was here

filling his vision the abandoned prison

dwarfed his six feet six frame

a history of brutality suicides executions

determined to fulfill his obligations

be rational inside the grim condemned wing

hoped the job no nasty surprises bring!

 

First shift was with a senior security officer

took him around the eery buildings

favored by paranormal groups to investigate

where its said the prisoners roamed

though long dead had departed life violently

their souls unable to rest or pass on

prison guards also within here had perished

their memory deeply cherished!

 

As he toured told of the long paranormal past

the gates now no longer locked

left open eerily quiet their footsteps echoed

on the dusty concrete floor

the power was turned off had to use torches

in a harsh and sparse interior

though in ghosts not sure whether to believe

soon different ideas would conceive!

 

The moment had arrived his first lone patrol

part of his work to keep away

anybody interfering with any investigations

mostly in the buildings alone

had that intense awareness of somebody near

tried but unable to shake it off

heard what may have been a banging  cell door

and shouting voices but not sure!

 

This before the group had even arrived here

really dark and cold at any time

needed the money had to man up he thought

took a deep breath passing through

cells where he knew there had been a murder

could feel depression and fear

glad to be back in the security office satisfied

had confronted the dread deep inside!

 

As a child saw what he thought was a monster

inside his house while playing

just appeared from nowhere ran crying to mum

but nothing was found on searching

parents put it down to a young child’s imagination

not believing him was a life long frustration!

 

Through to his adulthood felt it had followed him

so here he was to face his demon

had told nobody not even his wife nor friends

as the months went by more confident

it was nothing and for all those years allowed

that memory to interfere with living

until that shift brought his reality to a conclusion

there was no longer confusion!

 

Fortunate that he had befriended a psychic medium

there for an event had gone with him

on his rounds and felt there was a violent entity

moving around as a blow hit him

she saw a blurry shape pass through him in a second

he staggered out followed by a loud grunt

she too was shaken and surprised at this experience

at this totally unexpected interference!

 

Now he was not alone at last somebody understood

after that trauma during his childhood

yet was it the same entity that had scared him so

this was the next step he now had to know!

Perturbed!

Entering his garage found the car engine running

perturbed thought it very odd

must be an electrical fault what else could it be

yet held the key in his hand

there was more to this unusual event he pondered

as the bad memories stirred!

 

Only a few weeks ago had placed his wife in the car

tense as he had been questioned

so far his plans had worked well thought a suicide

she had a history of depression

plenty of pills plus the fumes yet guilt lingered on

hated her but knew it was wrong!

 

Was it just that a feeling of regret at the repulsive act

or was there more still felt her near

put aside any nagging doubts opened the garage door

reversed out had to meet his girlfriend

until his wife’s demise was known as his mistress

she would get rid of this stress!

 

Even driving to work became  an increasing problem

never seemed to be alone

at his office computers kept shutting off objects missing

his chair moved and incessant calls

but nobody ever on the other end was getting paranoid

this odd conduct co-workers him did avoid!

 

But the day did come when he swore he saw his dead wife

smelling the perfume she always wore

just before the wheel violently turned and off the road

into a tree at speed the car swerved

an unfortunate accident the police report clearly read

now like his wife he to was dead!

The Club!

The club was built on a slaughter-house site

where death was embedded

in eighteen twenty-one the hauntings began

soon as the wooden structure

opened for business visitors felt the chill

many became violently ill!

 

Voices were heard flies often filled the air

nobody understood why

did tainted blood washed down the well

on the ancient burial ground

cause the disturbances in the night spot

did it cause a man to be shot?

 

Before long more murders took place inside

some put down to drink

others were not se easy to find the reasons

in the twenties booze was band

in america prohibition was being enforced

by the feds strictly endorsed!

 

Violence escalated as gangsters profits grew

those opposing disappeared

eventually it was forced to close left empty

used by squatters and worse

devil worshippers found it ideal for rituals

breaking every holy rule!

 

It remained like this until the nineteen eighties

when a musician a venue

refitted it to his own country music design

the first manager it was said

became possessed by an entity in torment died

sinister shadows roamed inside!

 

Female screams often chilled many party goers

flying glasses and furniture

that moved without any human intervention

began to give the establishment

the wrong publicity the owner and staff wanted

soon with ghost hunters confronted!

 

Now to this day paranormal groups are certain

the activity is credibly real

has not diminished within spirits and demons

are there resident inside

one of the most haunted dwellings it is said

that fills most visitors with dread!

The Fun Fair!

The fun fair for generations had always existed

attracting countless visitors.

Boosting greatly the seaside towns popularity

throughout the whole year.

Like any public amenity had seen its mishaps

and the occasional collapse!

 

With a good safety proud only a few had died

nor many injured either.

But countless stories and rumours circulated

in particular the big wheel!

Where a specific and well documented sad case

brought a shadow to the place!

 

An investigation could not conclude an accident

many believed it murder!

This was not the first or last unexplained death

that was never solved!

Mechanical failures often used as the main cause

but no proof of the flaws!

 

Most believed it was haunted by those who died

and dark secrets were suppressed!

Even the owners and mature staff were secretive

and kept their mouths tightly shut.

This was also once the towns first cemetery site

adding to its woes and plight!

 

Were people exaggerating what they’d been seeing

with its history creating terror?

This added more excitement to the teenage group

who ventured onto the ride.

One story was of a woman falling from the top

of the wheel to the ground did drop!

 

Laughing and mocking about the tales of the park

until several saw a couple.

In one of the benched swinging gondolas in front

this made them subdued.

Approaching the ferrous wheel nothing was seen

what could it have been?

 

Reluctant to get on yet making this more of a thrill

foolishly sat in the very carr!

They were certain two people had been sitting

at first everything seemed well.

Then as the gondola reached the highest spot

started swinging a lot!

 

Violently shaking and tipping had to hold on tight

as the safety catch came loose!

Crying shouting for help lost in the atmosphere

just stopping crashing down.

The carnie brought it to safety so they could alight

they were certainly filled with fright.

 

He knew the secret that a girl had been thrown

by a fair worker years ago.

These teenager even now were keen to stay

hid until the park was shut.

The enthusiasm was short lived and evaporated

they were caught and berated.

 

Forcibly removed from  the park by night security

angry they couldn’t search more.

There were many dark sinister secrets to unfold

they were lucky to escape.

Anybody getting close to the truth disappeared

from within the park red eyes peered!

 

What were the secrets hidden within The Fun Fair?
