Watching You!

Eyes in the Sky

A long mysterious poem/story, on the spooky side...

Eyes in the Sky

Strange lights, like eyes in the sky
watching all who wander by
we tried to signal, no reply
and so we journey on
---
As we approached this distant world
the clouds below us savagely swirled
and to the surface we were hurled
hours before the dawn

The sky was black deep in the night
no moon and not a star in sight
but in the distance a flickering light
in a moment it was gone

When it appeared again, we set a course
we hoped to find the flickering source
it beckoned us with hypnotic force
and to it we were drawn

We traveled far, and as we drew near
more lights in the sky began to appear
their intent and purpose was unclear
until we were set upon

I awakened in the strangest place
amidst beings of light who had no face
my crewmates gone without a trace
while outside comes the dawn

Alone and nervous, feeling scared
not knowing why my life was spared
their intent remaining undeclared
but with the sunrise they've withdrawn

I set out now to find a way
back to my ship so far away
traveling faster in the light of day
with my thoughts to dwell upon

The ship is damaged beyond repair
but I'll spend my days remaining there
no hope for rescue, I despair
but I will carry on
---
The strange lights were eyes in the sky
watching all who wander by
we sent a signal, they reply
and everyone is gone...
