Spooked

I sit here in the place where bodies, once warm with life, lay cold and alone beneath the earth. Tiny lights declare that dusk has arrived, as blue turns to gold, the sun seems about to rest, giving the moon it’s turn to watch over the lonely, a yellow sun gives way to a white light. Silence all around. Two loud gunshots, now three and getting closer, I hope no-one has died…and I sit…afraid and alone in my car. This is not an ideal evening, in unfamiliar places I find myself, longing to be home and cosy… I am cold with my heart leaping, my brow furrowed, hands shaking.. I hope there is not a killer out there on the loose. I wait. The silence is comforting, or am I lulling myself into a false sense of security… how do I find myself here in an unlit graveyard on a cold winters night, alone and afraid. I check to see if there is any movement, but the darkness now almost envelops me…there is not a breath of wind. Everything is so still…

    Why are you there all alone, you sound so miserable.

  • I just got home, had to wait 2 hours longer than anticipated to collect my son from air cadets, it’s right next door to a cemetary and a housing estate, with no external lighting, so I was there in the daylight, but as I had to wait so long it got colder and darker and scarier, safe n sound now though :)
