PhantomPhantomPhantom by Michel-le-fou
‘Satan lurks in these dunes.’
Rajasthan, Northwestern India.
“From the land of the pharaoh,
There walked a phantom,
Tall and straight like a church spire.
He had a tall, gaunt form,
And his eyes burned like two fires*.
But he spoke no known human tongues.
Those who saw, or claimed to see,
Were haunted in their dreams
Until the night had gone.
Chapter One. Reports
When reports flooded into the precinct police department, the officer on duty scarcely believed what he had heard. In his long career in the Force, totaling ten years, he had heard many reports. He did not believe any word of them without witnessing them himself; and when he witnessed them, he proved whether they were true or not. Some reports were really true and correct as reported; others were not

Time has changed although neither much nor long;
We stay together and sing our love song;
But weather and health keep me indoors,
While I try to change whatever is wrong.
We sit close, side by side, and she waits
For the savory snacks I bought for our plates;
Though I need to eat, she needs love and not more.
So we dine, sometimes we wine, and we seal our fates.
Her sweet eyes twinkle and shine, day and night;
Guiding me through my life with their light;
We attend to each other, for we can never ignore
A love made in Heaven must be right.

Filled with sparkling lights
Warmth like one dozen fires
Whispers like spring breezes blowing by
Gliding down to earth
Land upon the curve of cheeks
They light up the room with their glow

The migration of the Esoteric Order of Dagon.
Chapter One. Following the Flow
With the Rightist alliance between the state Republicans led by Massachusetts governor Willard Romney and the Christian movement of Ron Paul in 2010, the inevitable protest against esoteric and eldritch cults in the state had occurred. These elder faiths were deemed outlawed and cult religions and were feared and despised by the Christians. While the more covert sects were urged to either disband or leave the state, one particular cult religion had secretly been searching for new territory to perform and to seek new converts. They were unknown to most residents of the state and neither Romney nor the authorities under his supervision knew much about them. They were titled Esoteric Cult of Dagon. Ron Paul had been the instigator of the protests, but he too had overlooked the cult. Nobody knew wher
Or Did They?Not far from the grottoOr Did They? by mmihalko13
There lies a tomb
Run down and dilapidated
It hides the secret well
Through the cobwebs and decay
This empty sepulcher cries out
Hoping for the master to return
It did not always lie this way
He was here
Or was he?
The name on the stone
The carvings on the wall
His greatness masked by the mystery
His life marred by tragedy
I was a child of 13 when I discovered it
Much older when I deciphered it
Even older when I understood it
Or was I?
The heir, I was not
Just a bystander to the inept
Jealousy and rage filled the air
How could they ignore this grand monument?
Him, for that matter
Sure, this house lay dormant
Only a faint whisper of the wind
Not even the rat or the spider ventured near
Or did they?
My vigil, waiting for him was long
Days of staring turned to weeks
Weeks to months, months to years
This candle burned
The flame of my innocence turned to passion
The tears of my prayers turned to blood
