Title: unseen strangers

i didn't know what i could see and feel, until i experienced it...

night one:
we had this group project back in our first year in college, looking for a speaker to be our representative.
we went to this specific restaurant to talk to one of the speakers [at night! 8pm i guess]....
bad luck was with us that time because the speakers were not around...
they were out of the city attending a convention! [grrrr!! i hated that time]
this project of ours is all about business for the poor...[what does this has to do with nursing?!]
well, we get speakers, talk to them, let them talk to the poor community then eventually give them a part-time job...[that's our project!]

well, back to the story...
so we decided to go to the church where a prayer meeting was going on...
we hope to get a speaker there because most of them are businessman...
my friends wanted some adventure and wanted to save money so we decided to walk...
and the walk was like more or less 5 km! *i burned some fats, lol*
we talked and talked until we reached this cemetery...
then this friend of mine had a silly idea!! [i hated his idea]
he said,
'hey guys, let's go in' with an excitement tone...
i protested and told them it's getting dark and my mom kept on calling & texting me asking me where i am, what time i am coming home, blah blah blah...
and one of my friends was as scared as me...
so they had no choice..
we arrived at the place, 'twas a solemn place, such a quiet place...
so my friend asked his uncle...blah blah blah... [about the speaker, you don't want to know that part]
and his uncle told us to wait inside the room...

so we went inside the room...
the place has a big statues of mama Mary and other saints...
so we sat down, chat a little and goofed around...
i told my friend to quiet it down coz a prayer meeting was going on...

and there it started!
goosebumps all over me...*i heard like spoons dropping...but my friends didn't heard it, except for my guy friend and me...*
i felt someone was watching us in the kitchen... [setting was: only the table was dividing us from the kitchen]
but no one was there so i minded my own business...
i thought i was the only one who felt it but also my guy friend felt it...[damn this third eye!]
he asked me if i felt it, and i nodded...
i told my other friends to quiet it down because they were too noisy...
but they did not listened to me...
me and my guy friend was very quiet and we behaved like little kids...*scaredy-cat!*
my other friends were so noisy and one of them bothered to ask me what's wrong with me and i told her,
'will you please keep quiet? someone has been watching us the moment we stepped inside this room.'
and my guy friend second the motion!
my other guy friends didn't listened to me and bugged me on what i saw with a loud voice,
so what happened?
all the lights went out and all of us raced outside...i heard "bang" like heavy metals crashing down, the moment the lights went out...
but before i could step outside, i saw this figure of a girl, wearing a white dress, long hair covering her face...
funny thing was, i was left behind, so i grabbed my guy friend's shirt..*lol*
as we stepped outside, we saw all the light went out but the other houses and buildings' light were on and only the house that we were in was very dark....
we talked to the speaker outside...
and as soon as we were done, we walked away,going home, the lights we went back...
and the figure stood at the door...(the lights in that room that time was dim)
i guess we were too noisy that we were not welcome...

night two:
we went back to the restaurant hoping to find the speaker! [twas night time again because that is the only time we all have time] lol!
and finally we found our speaker...
BUT! he told us to reschedule next week because he was busy and have an appointment...[sheesh!]
so we had no choice because the project was due in two days...
we had to go back to where we talked to my friend's uncle...

then again, we walked to save money and for little adventure! TT_TT
then again, we passed by the cemetery... TT_TT....

they dared again and i protested again....

i told them it's not good to mess around while a project's on going...
[KILL JOY!!] lol...

anyways, we walked again...
then my friend asked me why i won't go inside a cemetery...
i told him, that i am a scaredy-cat...
and as we walked, we talked and talked about ghosts...
then i had this funny feeling someone was following us...
i looked at our back and i saw an old man, tagging along with us...
i was sure he wasn't alive 'coz i can't see his face, just his figure...
i kept my mouth shut so as not to scare my girl friends...
he followed us until we reached a corner....
as we reached the place, the spirit was gone...

and i kept on talking about ghosts experiences to my friend [we were sitting across my other friends]...
i had a bad feeling and i felt goosebumps, and i knew, there was someone,who's not like us,that was with us
then suddenly my guy friend [the same guy friend who could see ghosts,] said,
'hey, did you see that?'
[more goosebumps!] i ran towards him and said while slapping his arm,
'i didn't mind that spirit as to not to scare myself and there you are minding that spirit!!'

i was sobbing because i was really scared...me and my friends held each other because i did not stop crying [such a scaredy-cat!]....

he narrated what he saw :
it was an old guy....his hands suddenly raised...like he was reaching out for us
but my other friends didn't saw him, it was only him and me...
so we sat in where there was a light [coz we were sitting where there was only little light].
as we sat...i started crying again...i felt so cold and goosebumps again...TT_____TT
and my girl friend asked me what's wrong,
i told her, that another one was sitting beside me *but i didn't described what i saw*
[somewhat a kid, she was 3 feet tall, very pale and was sobbing, somewhat mocking me]...
to make me stop crying, we decided to get away from that place and eat our dinner before talking to the speaker...
then my guy friend said
'there's a funeral just across the street, and inside the coffin was an old man in his mid-50's...
it matched to the old man my guy friend saw....

wondered why i was being followed by the spirits?
*PM me...lol*

{as i typed this story though it's broad day-light, there's someone standing behind me and I'm sure it's not one of our family members}

Title:Lost And Alone

I am here living in an icy dream
Where no one can hear my screams
Only a deafening silence is found
Griefs and sufferings filled the ground.

People around me do not care
Never help me with the pains I bear
No one in my dreams will save my life
For there is no reason for me to survive.

I wander through days and nights
Looking for a certain light.
The one who will let me know,
When will darkness let me go.

I am here, lost and left alone
Don't know if I can make it my own
With all the people pass by
I don't dare to ask them why.

Every time they see me cry
They just ignore me then sigh
Heading their ways without looking back
Leaving me with unfortunate luck.

Will I be like this forever?
No one by my side will be there
Like what I used to have before
That now I have no more.
