 Welcome to My Poetry Site



A small red light is seen at night

Above an empty road

Amongst the stars it follows cars

And frightens those on board


An eerie beam, a silent scream

There’s something up ahead

A quantum ray takes power away

And stops the engine dead


The doors won’t lock and to your shock

A figure stands nearby

Your nerves on end it moves and bends

To look you in the eye


As time stands still you feel the thrill

Of floating through the air

An alien face, a probe in place

A sample of your hair


This can’t be real and yet you feel

That time has slipped away

And later when you check the date

You find you’ve lost two days


Where have you been, what can it mean

Does life exist up there?

You’ve been aboard a UFO

Who are they and - from where?
