Taylor!

She walked down the quiet lane

witnesses told the police

smiling and singing as always

everybody knew Taylor

a local lass well-known there

always a word to share!

 

A regular journey to see gran

who lived on a farm

at the end of old tinkers lane

gran waited as usual

never reached her destination

causing fear and frustration!

 

As afternoon became evening

the family gathered

police called a search began

by her many friends

neighbours joined in as well

but soon darkness fell!

 

The days became many weeks

no explanation found

mentioned she was eighteen

an adult not a child

to her parents their baby still

a void nothing could fill!

 

Hope faded worst synopsis feared

no suspects or motive

within this tight nit community

rumours then emerged

that strange clouds were seen

and a friend saw the teen!

 

Only for seconds then vanished

put it down to a mistake

caught in the emotional wave

forgot to mention it

but news outlets had moved on

the interest value gone!

 

Two months later she returned

Taylor came home

as her brother and sister strolled

into their kitchen

one Friday after being at school

quietly sitting on a stool!

 

Mum was crying emotionally to

she looked over smiling

that unique reassuring glance

as if nothing was wrong

ending up hugging each other

mum sisters and brother!

 

Eagerly asking the one question

where had she been

yet Taylor could not answer this

thought it the same day

of missing time no recollection

of anything wrong rejection!

 

The journey to the truth compelling!

Stalled!

The old car his pride and joy was running well

early summer decided to take a trip

into the countryside to a nearby historic town

it stalled outside an empty building

unable to get it running decided to take a tour

of this place wanted to know more.

 

The car had overheated it had happened before

and somehow felt compelled to walk

as if guided down a pathway to a large garden

the rear of the large house

where he had parked then entered the gate

not for a moment did he hesitate!

 

For some reason the house seemed so familiar

and at the window a woman waved

then as he neared the glass doors opened wide

and she came out to greet him

soon was in her arms then went happily inside

but why became mystified?

 

The smell of perfume soft sweet intoxicating

it did not feel like his own life

but captured in a long passed scene replaying

yet the passion and love real

suddenly everything changed to a deep sadness

the house now a total mess!

 

Another vision saw the lady hanging from a beam

taking her down and holding

the limp body he gently held within his arms tight

tears he shed pain so deep

darkness filled his mind finding himself all alone

on the grass outside prone!

 

Nobody was anywhere in sight now on his feet

made the return walk to his car

that dizziness soon cleared sat back in the seat

put the key in the ignition

started first turn had to take another glance

had he relieved a lost romance?

 

From the window she watched him go!
