Enigma's Of A Lost World

Cover Image

I was sitting by the river and saw the shimmering light of the moon twinkling on the surface of the water under the wings of darkness and the creepiness of the forest and far from the urban noise that is heard from a long distance, and The sounds of the night shifts factories and the trucks passing the interstate not far from here, also the roaring of the steel beasts at city crushing the old cars in the junkyard under its metal fangs....

all these far noises were vanishing in the mist and only dying echoes can be heard in here it was a magical night, a clear summer night where all the animals were out hunting and scavenging for food, and from a far I can see the luminous eyes of the animals lurking as they drink from the rivers elixir of life, and quench their thirst, all these factors were like ingredients from a warlock's potion waiting to be cast on everyone who dares to sit beside the river in that time of night.

I felt that I was taken from this world to another dimension were imagination dwells and magic reigns, where all the creatures are equal and where all have wings to fly freely into the vast skies. It felt like it was a world of magic and leprechauns. As the mist devouring the night and as I flew free with no bounding or gravity to keep me nailed to the ground.

I flew pass the forest and saw a horrific sight, clashing armies fighting near a city and lots of killing were happening there it was a blood bath, rivers of blood were flowing beneath the feet of the soldiers the thundering sound of their swords and the war cries filled my heart with horror and I start to tremble at this scenery.

but my curiosity drove me to see what were they fighting for so I saw a city protected by a humongous tower, it was nearly touching the skies and when I started getting closer I realized that it was all built from human skulls, I began to fly higher until I reached the top of the tower, I stood at it gasping for air but if surprised that all around the top of the tower there was flowers planted into the skulls but they were alive and full grown as if there was a gardener looking after them and arousing them with water everyday.

I went pass the top and started my descent to the city, but finally when i glimpsed the earth I was staggered by a terrible sight all the city were just ruins and rumbles and it was odd that all these soldiers outside that city were fighting and dying for a destroyed city. I started to walk between the destroyed houses and shadows of the past. as I walked I began to hear far laughs of kids playing, sounds of merchants and people walking, it sounded like I was passing through a "souk" 2000 years ago, but it was all sounds from a haunted past.

I finally reached the center of the city and saw a fountain of water flowing out of a well with an astonishing power that it almost touched the sky, but yet soon fall back into it again, that was the only living site in that dead city, and strange enough when I reached the well I noticed writings carved on its walls it said:’ muted are the roses at the sight of the blood, spilling down on the ground, sad are the leaves as they fall hopelessly over the dead bodies, and pale are the faces of people mourning there lost loved ones' . These words made me shiver; it was too absurd for me to understand.

if left this city and as if was leaving I felt like a part of me had died in there; As I continued my flight into the sky I reached a black cloud just standing still in middle air and it was blocking my way, if had no choice but to fly right inside it. the moment I entered the cloud I felt some kind of a chill and a shiver ran down my spine, I felt real cold and lonely I was very afraid to come forward but there was no turning back the cloud had devoured me to its womb, to a dark world. I looked under me and I saw a castle standing on top of a mountain, and a weird force began to pull me under, so I started to come closer and closer until I was standing at this huge door, it had a door handle shaped like a strange star I reached my hand to knock at the door but then it began to slowly open by itself.

finally I entered the castle it was all pitched in black and I kept walking not knowing where I’m heading as like I was moved by a mystical force, this force took me all around the castle until we reached a wall filled with pictures of people and it was on fire but not burning and from behind the wall I can hear fading cries and screams begging for help but at the same time I was able to distinguish a voice amongst the screams because it was the only voice that was laughing and his laughs was very malignant and it started to get higher and higher, until I couldn't stand it anymore so I started to shout at him to stop but nothing happened he kept laughing and laughing.

but suddenly something pulled me up and I found myself out of that cloud sitting on a golden chair surrounded by white and then I heard a far but strong voice and he said to me: "Son, this is I, thou shall not be afraid."
