No. 2045

A Night in Eerie Castle. By CpSingleton © 2016

Whispers around the turrets,

Footfalls down the halls,

Drips in the new-paint plaster,

The owl outside; she calls.

Noises in this medieval castle,

Singing all is not how it seems,

When down below, to rip the air,

The pierce of a lady’s screams.

Could this be the ghosties;

The forlorn spirits of the dead?

Excitement in my chest bursts and

Paints a smile upon my head.

I mute the wonky veletision.

My ears strain within new silence.

Ready for the slightest utterance 

Of age-old phantasmic violence.

Then it comes again my friends:

The same tender, high pitched moan.

Then to add an extra layer 

The lady lets out an exaggerated groan.

I leave the comfort of the bed and

Stride barefoot to the door.

Intent to catch the ghostie-whosts 

If they let vent a screech once more.

It comes AGAIN! Louder! 

Followed by the groaning of a male!

In the dark, wearing just my shorts

I think I’ve found my ghostie grail!

I step into the deserted hallway,

The noises bouncing off the walls!

Both male and female intertwine

Like wolves at moonlight calls.

It’s then that my poor hearts sinks

Behind my ribs and pecks:

The noise is coming from next door 

As two noisy gits have sex!

Back I shuffle to my room.

Cursing both the noise and their luck.

Wondering if they know

That we can hear the ffffire ALARM!


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
