The Return

The  lonely  shadows  fall once more

Still here, I listen  to  the waves  fall upon the shore.

I want  to leave  and  walk under  the moon

In my heart I  know  my lover  will be returning  soon.

 

Cobwebs  dance like  silver chain mail  in candle light

I look out  through  the  gaping  holes into the night.

Is  he  coming  is he  near, be  still heart  I cannot  hear

Above  the  moaning  wind , if his steps draw near.

How long I have I been  sitting  here

Awaiting  the return of you,my  dear

Too long  for such a maid as I,  I fear

I’ve seen too much  of history  pass through here.

 

The sun  now  climbs  above  this  hill

Where  castle  and  my  spirit await  you  still

I can wait no longer  the  need  for  you  grows  stronger

I step outside into  the growing light, nought is  the same as I look yonder.

The  sea is  gone  though I  still here it’s song

This  does  not feel  right  there is  something wrong.

I feel weak here in the sun, my heart now still I begin to fade.

Has  my  wait  been in vain. Then I  spy  you  standing in the glade.

 

How long I have I been  sitting  here

Awaiting  the return of you,my  dear

Too long  for such a maid as I,  I fear

I’ve seen too much  of history  pass through here.

The  story  came  from my head  by  an idea  born by  reading  Jean’s post Socialbridge  Phunning Light.

Not the A to Z April Challenge : Fortress

From ancient  times upon the tall hill

The  fortress stood  and remains still

Many  have  said  that  fairies dwell

Hidden but casting  spells

Ghosts  within there dwell

Dreams enough to fill

The fortress still

You could fall

Under the

Spell

Halloween Dreams

HALLOWEEN ACROSTIC

Howling  hounds and a hateful ghost

All crawling in my brain to dictate this post

Low life’s clawing at the damp sodden soil

Longing to escape upwards  they toil.

Open wounds leaking foul smelling puss.

Worms  and maggots  in a frenzy hungry for us.

Every shadow  seems  to reach out for  you

Even  the toys in the corner are eyeing you too.

No don’t look behind you have a care ….

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HALLOWEEN  DREAM

Sitting  quietly in the room

It is getting  late  and I grow cold.

Shadows creeping  spreading gloom

My mind drifts  my dreams unfold.

 

A chill, a shiver a sense of impending doom

Vampires , Zombies tormented souls

Dragging  chains and fearing  life left too soon.

Moans of agony from bodies being hauled over hells coals.

 

I cannot move I am rooted to the spot

A thousand  spiders crawl through my hair

I open  my mouth  to scream but I cannot!

I reach out for help  but there is none there.

 

A shadow forms outside on the wall

Bats circle up in the evening sky

They form a woman I watch her dark hair fall

Across her shoulders our glances meet eye to eye.

 

 

Shocked to the core  we are both rooted to the spot

She is me and I am her, we are one….

Come  she beckons join with me, at this  you get only one shot.

I find  that I can move fast, faster than the wind we touch hands  and we are gone.

 

Where’s your mother  has she gone out ?

There’s no dinner  what is she playing at.

The  house is empty she does not answer even if we shout.

Her computers on and running…. what do you make of that?

 

 

 

The Ghost on the shore.

Sun shines on the water silver fairies dance

The  geese come in to land  watch their webbed feet prance.

The sun is climbing  higher in to the blue blue sky

I stand alone on the beach, alone . I ask myself why.

 

I see the children run along  the beach

I wonder where  they’re headed and if their goals  they’ll reach.

Mums and Dads  follow on with picnics carefully wrapped

Standing here I can only  watch a tormented soul truly trapped.

 

For eons I have stood here only allowed to spectate

All I can do is pray for kindness, all I can do is wait.

Then at last I see him, my child emerging from the sea

He runs to me after all this time we are united and finally both of us are free.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Cold now the water is col,  it was warm at  first

It holds  me down yet  carries me  but it does not quench  my thirst.

I do not thirst  for water only for warmth  and light

It is  so cold and  dark  down here I can’t say if it’s day or night

 

Where is my mum, where has she gone

She was here with me playing why has it all gone wrong.

Years  have come  and years  have gone and yet I am still here

I think I’ll never  feel the sun or sand,  or see my mum again I fear.

 

Then at last  the angel came  and gently lifted  me

In to the sun and the blessed warmth up out of the sea.

I see my  mum standing  there rooted to the spot

I feared she might of left, I am glad  that she has not.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Two souls  at last united  after years and years apart

At peace now united peaceful at last in God’s heart!

Sunflower Door

image

There is a door in the wall
If I step through it will I fall?
What is on the other side
My curiosity I cannot hide.

In this tall walled alley steeped with history.
I feel the souls from hundreds of years,they speak to me.

image

Thousands of feet have passed this way.
Births,deaths,those who betray.
Intrigue and bloody murder.
A woman shamed who attacked her.

Yet in the here and now I stand.
Looking at this sunflower door and
Wonder what is on the other side?
I long to step forward and throw it wide.

image

It would of been a step into infinity.
The door hide a fearful drop indeed the end of me.
Yet I am here to tell the tale
Fate’s test I passed, happily I did not fail.

Trio of Halloween Haiku

Smoke from pumpkins fill the air

Spells and treats  everywhere

Ghosts and Ghouls hide everywhere .

 

 

Late  returning home to bed

Sweets in tummys fuzzy heads

Home sweet home sleepy head

 

 

Vampires , witches and gaunt ghouls

Late night stay out fools

Halloween unholy evil night.

 

 

 

 

Musical theme : Halloween Scream!

I know that it is  raining  I can see that it is  wet

But you are my familiar  and not a blooming pet!

I have asked you nicely I have even said please

Now go and get me food or I shall infest you with flees.

Excuse me, Lady  Mistress, this does not seem quite right

Just where in my contract does it say I have to work for you at night!

You have run me ragged every minute of today

I am tired now and my feathers are wet and here in the warm I need to stay.

Pardon me, my fine feathered friend pardon me my beauty

I am not requesting  that you get me food I am demanding that you do your duty.

I am the one in charge not you , I am the tortured soul of a Vampire

You do as I bid  and brook me not. Go, go on, What are waiting for, wet weather attire.

Well Mistress that would not go amiss for I am not a duck,

And if I get lost  you will miss out and that would be such bad luck.

Be Gone Get out and find me fresh blood

And if you play your cards right I shall dip you in the stream on your return to remove the mud.   (  https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2013/08/    )

Above  was a tongue in cheek poem about witches and their familiar’s 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“In the Shadows” is a song by Finnish alternative rock band The Rasmus.
The single achieved considerable chart success throughout Europe and worldwide,
including the United Kingdom, where it reached No.3, and New Zealand, where it
topped the charts. It is featured on the group’s fifth studio album Dead Letters.
The song currently holds the record for performance royalties received abroad on a
Finnish composition (overtaking the works of Jean Sibelius).

The Gate Keepers

There they sit  by the gate,

A whole eternity  they had in front of them to wait!

The eons came and they went

Knowledge filled their heads and pleasure it came and was spent.

Time could not ravish them

The years of man  and his sins on them set , but  not blend.

They saw time ebb and flow

They saw the species of human  come and go!           ( https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2013/07/25/the-gate-keepers/ )

This is from a mini  series I wrote , 12 mini episodes and an epilogue.

Love Song for a Vampire” is a song by Scottish singer Annie Lennox. It was recorded as the theme song to Francis Ford Coppola‘s

1992 film adaptation of Dracula. The song is used in the end credits of the film.  The video features Annie Lennox as a vampire in a

white-dress in a dark and gloomy garden. Aside from shots of her singing, the music video incorporates numerous scenes from

the movie Dracula that goes along with the beat of the music. The last shot is a fade out with a single beam of light shining on Lennox in the dark garden.

Running for Life

Step after step I drag myself through the rain

Blind to all around me , my  mind closed to the pangs of pain.

Fear, hatred and panic screaming in my head, loathing causing in my veins.

Step after  blooded step , fast as I can and yet it is coming still gaining.

I stumble and fall , legs and arms graze I crawl no point in complaining.

Hot breath on my neck I shudder in fear I smell his rank sweat as he draws near

I feel his claws scrape at my flesh, I loose a scream of primal fear.

Ripping at my dress and  hair I run for my life, to look over my shoulder I don’t dare.

No choices left to me, naught I can do . I stand and face the beast  for death I prepare.

Eyes red as the devil pure evil it seems it closes on me the worst of all my bad dreams.

Caught in his clutches, mercy is not on the cards, so  I beg for divine intervention

Praying  hard, His nostrils are flaring he’s baring his fangs letting me live is not his intention.

Finally all I can do is fall on my knees and pray , why must this horror be my last of days.

Suddenly after a thunderous noise a white flash as lightening  carved him in half God be Praised.

Broken and bleeding I lay in the mud,my life slipping out of me no fight left no more……..   ( https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2013/05/27/running-for-life/   )

The Vampires Shall Not  Have Thee

 

I am the tree witch I am hiding in the forest green I move by stealth I blend in and I am rarely seen.

I am waiting to trap a soul, it is something I must do. Over the years I have stolen quite a few. My hair is long and lustrous and really very strong, it can catch you and entrap you as quick as a whip’s thong.

I have roots growing out from my feet and spreading from my hem, leaves spread from fingers and from my backbone stem thrice fold pairs of arms. If you look close enough I will bewitch you with my charms.

My eyes are deftly painted to show off their emerald green my lips are always blood red well another colour would be obscene.

I have a lighted candle in my third left hand my way to light,  I have seen you about your business and I have come for you tonight.

I know you are not too special but I have watched you in your room at night,alone with computer and your mind in fantasy’s flight.You long for a Vampire to relieve you of your soul you seem to think that one of my cousins would make your sad life whole.

I have thought this over I have listened to your prayers , I have lingered by your window and taken in your every word.There is something about you, something that I like so I have decided you will endure no Vampires bite.

So look out your window and see my candles’ light, come out my little human soul have no fear I shall treat you right. You will be so much better off with me than in a Vampires lair just look out your window and see my candle light is there.

AH! at last you see me, curiosity in your eyes. That is right my darling make your way to me for you my body cries. At last you are so near to me I catch your human scent come close now my darling my love for you I must vent.

At last you are within my reach, come nearer to the candle yes closer,closer my darling no need to be gentle my branches will not break. I have you now my darling I own your soul I have waited aeons for a man to make me whole!

The theme to the film Halloween

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ARMAGEDDON

To say she  was lined was an understatement.

To hint that her green eyes are unsettling would be an out and out lie.

To misunderstand her looks would be a debasement. Her face was so thin and her velvety skin could bring a tear to your eye.

She fell from heaven with a bump,

scattering the cats and dogs that were foraging the municipal  dump.

As she sat there rubbing her knee

the last of the homeless stared at her unable to believe what he could see.

Huge pearl drop tears fell from her eyes, sobs falling from her mouth.

Hand to her mouth she determinedly tried

to crush the screams that showed her she had survived.

The only witness to her arrival  stepped forward offering her a slug of whiskey to celebrate  her survival!
Unsteadily she rose to her feet she took the old man’s flask and emptied it complete.

Unsteadily she crossed the waist ground,

the crunching of glass under her feet and the sharp  in take of breath from on lookers was the only sound.

The weather was cold and it was dark and starting to sleet she borrowed a tired workman’s mobile and she began to tweet !

  Early arrival for Armageddon today should I just keep quiet

or shall I tell them to panic….. OKAY??

Above is the prologue to another mini series about Armageddon  there are another 12 mini episodes. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

The name Halloween (originally spelled Hallowe’en) is a contraction of All Hallows Even,

meaning the day before All Hallows Day (better known today as All Saints Day),

a Catholic holiday commemorating Christian saints and martyrs observed since the early Middle Ages on November 1.

The empty house

I was not always as you see me now, decaying  old ready to take a final bow.

I was beautiful tall and strong , a stable bet to set your life upon.

It is cold at night and the wind finds my every crack

I tremble and shudder now as the tubes roll by on the nearby  track.

I brace myself against the traffic’s thunder,

Each day that passes the fact I still stand here  is a wonder.

I used to hear the children sing ,

The chime of doorbells as they’d ring.

Families living in me weaving their life

As I stood there for them strong in their joys and strife.

I have seen babies born and babies die,

Mothers grieving, husbands turning a blind eye.

Birthdays, marriages, divorces all old hat, kindly couples happy in each others care

Evil bastards who knock their women flat out on the stair,

Or shout them down until they loose all hope

Weighted down with worries and too many children to cope.

The birds are now happy in my rafters

Their cooing fills my rooms instead of laughter ,

It is still a happy sound not unlike the sounds

Of children playing here there  and  all around.

At night lovers climb through my open doors

They make love upon my dust floors

For them I am their only meeting place ,

For what ever reason they may have to hide their face.

Drinkers also drug addicts too

They hide within my walls to do what they must do.

I am decaying crumbling away

I do not want to go yet I want to stay.

Try me out I could be the best deal for you

If you build me up I shall protect you true.

I could be the canvas to build your life upon.

I could be rebuilt, decorated and glazed I could dance again to children’s song.
