Curse of Mayweather House In Rhyme

 

Haunting of Mayweather House

*

Mayweather House lost in the past

Where love is lost as well

Cruelly beaten down

By demons straight from hell

These demons joined forces

Till the many became one

Locked inside one entity

Now Evil has its fun

Take away their laughter

Begin their lives of pain

They will curse God

In sunshine and in rain

Evil grins its evil jaw

Bears its teeth for all to see

It knows they’ve lost their way

With the cry of the Banshee

Hell has overcome

God’s mercy for all mankind

“Na! Na!” says God Almighty

“Hell’s demons must be blind”

Teika call out my name

You never knew of ME

I AM your Blessed Savior

Forgiven sin I’LL never see

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Past and present memories

Converge in the mind

As confusion builds

 Memories be intertwined

Myths and legends unwind

Take a moment to put in order

Keep those memories precise

Don’t allow your mind to wander

Always be concise

Ramblings of the aged

Sounds like senility

Listen closely and you will hear

 Echoes of legibility  

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Childhood remembered

In sing-song melody

Sing on sing on

Inner child Nancy Lee

Rain Rain Go away

Come again some other day

Nancy Lee wants to play

April showers bring May flowers

They smell so good to me

Bring me a kaleidoscope of color

As far as the eye can see

On this day please stop the rain

So I can have fun and play

Turn off the faucet in the sky

And let the sun shine this day

Lord, April has twenty nine other days

For the rain to fall

Please let me have this one please

And cause the rain to stall

I promise I won’t ask again

Until flowers are in bloom

Dear Lord, please turn off the rain

And give Mr. Sun some room

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Three siblings

With iron box in hand

Fly through the air

To take a stand

A quest to find

Their ancestral home

To learn about ghosts

On Devils Bluff they roam

Oh be cautious, oh be aware

Tread carefully this ghostly realm

Far from where eyes can see

Three spirits stand at the helm

 *

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Their arrival on English soil

Wakes the demon to destroy

All beware, it’s come to pass

Be on guard, golden haired lass

Stay the course … there’s

Safety in numbers

Siblings three

Count the trios 1-2-3

Join them now

Living and dead

Making them four

Then you’ll open the door

Be strong of heart,

Sane of mind,

Keep your cool,

That’s the rule.

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Three siblings discover

An antique box

Warnings of death

Upon the rocks

Secrets revealed

From a hidden past

Lost ancestors

Are discovered at last

A mysterious antique key

Opened this box

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

Echoes of many clocks

Sounding their chimes

To the spirit world this day

Time has come,

Stay the course, don’t stray

Mayweather Ghosts

Are awaiting them

Evil lurks

Waiting to condemn

Atlantic Ghosts

Wait on the waves

Waiting to be called

From their watery graves

Justin saw

A beautiful ghost long ago

Standing in the corner

Gleaming all a glow

Hush, she whispered

Her lips emitted a foggy mist.

She vanished before his eyes

But did she really exist?

Michael, a brave

And trusting youth

Considers himself

A ghost-busting sleuth

He has never seen

A ghost, but he knows

The closer he gets

His excitement grows

Lyndsey feels fear

Deep down inside

But with her brothers

She doesn’t confide

She’s the mirror image

Of Leora Grace

The spirits of light

Long to embrace

Siblings three

Are England bound

Curse is coming

Full circle round

With another three

They will break the curse

And free the ghosts

From Teika’s demonic verse

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

We speak about foundation

But what is it we say

It’s a strong beginning

Of each and every day

We walk this life in peril

Holding tight to our faith

Pushing back our demons

Never feeling its wraith

Our minds would be lost

With everything we know

That’s why our minds choose

To bury all the woe

Our foundation

Firm and strong

We will always fight

Everything that’s wrong

Tell the world we remember

What it is we need to do

Christina, we’ll stand together

And lead the others, too

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Evil stands its ground

Curse comes full circle round

Holding all within its claws

No one escapes its crushing jaws

Cry in the night with silent screams

Terror fills your haunting dreams

Evil laughs, hear its screeching tones

Down in the locker with Davy Jones

On Devils Bluff, the lighthouse glows

A black heart beats in death’s repose

Quietly stalking those at rest

Too many minds have been possessed

 

 

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

A lady is like poetry

She walks with beauty and grace

Everyone she meets

Remembers her shining face

A real lady through and through

That is Nancy Lee

She turns the heads of royalty

Of that we’ll all agree

She was not born with a silver spoon

She was not of royal birth

Her heart and soul guided her

Up the ladder of worth

She walks proud among them

A real lady she became

Because she had a gentle heart

All love her just the same

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Museums are for keeping safe

Memories of the past

Locking away events

On those the curse was cast

Nancy Lee’s mother

Watched with young Natalie

As the men they loved died

In their eyes a haunting plea

Two women made a bond that day

One they would never break

Their children would never meet

But their hearts would feel the ache

Natalie roams the bluff by night

Nathan roams the seas

Nancy Lee keeps safe

Her mum’s memories

She’ll share each and every one

With American siblings three

Together they will break the curse

And set all the spirits free

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Learn it all

Know your foe

Join your hands

On you go

Stake your claim

Claim your prize

Tread carefully … and

Never ever close your

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Clawed hand of a demon

Reached out from the bowels of hell

Malcolm felt Its sting

A pain he knows well

This demon’s hand wreaked havoc

On many down through the years

It’s evil personified

Expelling oceans of tears

Beware the Clawed Hand

It is reaching out for you

If you come to close

It will crush you too

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Blissful tiny moments

Brings peace to the mind

Walking in the fresh air

Where nature is so kind

Please take a moment

Before taking up the quest

Breathe in the special moments

And give your mind a rest

 

 

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

A story from long ago

Can be beautiful and sad

But when you realize it’s the curse

It can really make you mad

Little Hunter was a pawn

In Evil’s curse

His father escaped … but

Hunter heard its demonic verse

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Little Mary was spared that day

Her mother paid the price

Charles blamed himself

Oh let me be precise

Charles took his wife and child

Into the house of sin

Pamela’s mind was trapped

Inside the walls within

Little Mary escaped he thought

Years later, her son would pay

With his very life

On April 12th, Titanic’s day

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

A quiet country park

For the telling of this tale

Has a calming effect

Like an aged mug of ale

Breathe in its air of sweetness

Mixed with the salty air

Wile away the hours

Behold its beauty fair

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Oh for the taste of Monkey Bread

This old spirit would sell his soul

Or at least give the thought a moment

I remembered the curse of ole

Evil stands there waiting

Listening for each sinful thought

No monkey bread is worth

Evil and its plot

Complete failure on my part

I cloud this thought within

Calling on the Lord

To please forgive my sin

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

We all have a fear of loss

But for many that fear is known

We know the horrible truth

Because the evil has grown

Take back the fear

Replace it with your strength

Make your heart a pure vessel

Unceasing prayers at length

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Should they heed the warnings?

Or close the strongbox on them all

Allow their greed to dive headlong

Not allowing their minds to stall

Shouldn’t they see the bigger picture?

Lost souls in the fog behind the veil

Look past the greed of wealth

Free the spirits oh so frail

The choices that they make

Forever will seal their fate

I pray they take the narrow path

Before it is too late

 

 

 

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

All eyes on them that night

No one even tried to be polite

All wondered why they’d come

They didn’t order ail or rum

Lyndsey’s minds on the Mayweather Curse

Clawed hand and a haunting verse

Its memory whirled through her mind

This demon she too will find

Evil’s clawed hand stabbed deep

Left her screaming in death’s sleep

Leora Grace came to her aid

This evil could not invade

Who will be next in Evil’s grasp?

Lyndsey’s mind heard her gasp

Will it be me because of the dream?

Mind’s ear heard a silent scream

Whisper as they stare

Not knowing the lineage they share

Another night, and another time

We’ll hear this haunting rhyme

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

A walk down memory lane

Keep your feet on solid ground

Remember the good and bad

All comes full circle round

Each memory a teaching tool

Learn from your mistakes

Errors must not be repeated

This will spare us all heartaches

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Mixed feeling fill the salty air

On Southampton’s shores

Should we walk among the ghosts?

And open the entry doors

Two proceed cautiously

The third pushes back his fears

But are they diving headlong

Into an ocean of tears

Mixed feelings are the forefront

That keeps our feet on solid ground

We won’t allow this demon’s curse

To come full circle round

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Each house has a soul

A heart beats within

But what makes it a home

Is enjoying happiness without sin

Evil thrives on sinful ways

Making its walls a tomb

For all who cross its threshold

Even infants in the womb

Must bring back the happiness

Must bring back the joy

Turn this house into a home

Or it will destroy

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

A legend or a myth

Breeds the fear that lives within

We tell ourselves it isn’t true

To believe is but a sin

Look at each myth, piece by little piece

Put together the puzzle you see

Seek and find the truth

In the fog, hear a haunting plea

Ghosts and demons live

Of that there is no doubt

Plan your choices carefully

Stay the course, follow the route

 

 

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Evil knows your secret longings

It thrives on what’s within

Leads you where it wants you to be

Secret longings turn to sin

Oh yes, Evil knows

Everything you are inside

Must fill your heart with goodness

And don’t stand on foolish pride

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

 

Nathan stared into the flames

Evil’s breath, felt molten hot

Mesmerizing this young man

In sorrow he cast his lot

If he had known back then

What this fire would bring

He would have ran fast

Never feeling Evil’s sting

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Each day led them closer

To a haunting realm

Natalie voiced her fears

To the Captain at the helm

Don’t worry he said

In a voice so calm

Titanic is unsinkable

Was his healing balm

Evil was speaking through him

On the Titanic that day

Ending all her questions

Then Evil went its way

Nathan was the interloper

They both would pay the price

One to death, one insane

Yes Nathan rolled the dice

Could it all have been prevented?

Who’s to say, who’s to know

Would the Titanic have been lost?

Had Nathan heeded warnings of woe

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Into a haunted maze

Something grabbed his foot

Claws dug deep into his flesh

 Pulling him down below

He saw her spirit glow

Gentle spirit of pure light

Saved him on that day

He still feels the pain

  And the haunting cold

Even though he’s now old

Evil lost its grip

It waits to try again

Must not let down his guard

For Evil is waiting there

Beware Evil’s demonic stare

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Old crush of days gone by

Has found the light of day

Rekindled, old seems young again

Only a breath away

Remember when love was young

Lad and lass ran wild and free

Time has gone full circle

Old folks, can’t you see

Time is a waning

Old folks remember when

No time to ponder love

Allow loving feelings in

Time is now your enemy

Hear love knocking at the door

Waist not a single moment

This love you must explore

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Love blossoms in different seasons

Each season love burns bright

In springtime, love grows flowers

We smell its sweet perfume

In summer, love discovers heat

Molten hot, we feel the flames

In autumn we feel comfort

Like a winding country road

But when love comes in winter

Love blossoms into winter fire

Special bonds formed

Old seem young again

Like the flowing of the tide

We savor every moment

As love captures us anew

Basking in loves glory

As springtime is renewed

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Love finds a tragic end

And Evil has its day

Nathan is its prize

Natalie walks insanity’s way

It’s the child Evil wants

And it will bide its time

To wreak havoc once again

Within this demonic rhyme

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Rumors speak of Natalie’s fate

On dark and lonely nights

Her ghostly haunting cry they hear

While standing on the peer

Natalie took her place

Out on Devils’ Bluff

She roams the cliffs by night

Searching for love’s true light

Nathan roams the darkest sea

Rising from his watery grave

Searching for his love so sweet

Evil jeers in its deceit

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

A far reaching evil

Reaches out for you

Turning your pure heart

Into a wicked heart of sin

Put on the helmet of salvation

The breastplate of faith and love

Adhere to the guidance

From your Father up above

Your faith will protect you

Through His heart of love

Find your salvation

Through the King of kings

He whispers to you, child

In a still small voice

Call upon His name

Tis time to make a choice

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Timothy entered this world

Second of the twins

Fighting for his breath

Bluish was his skin

Older sister Sarah

Never drew a single breath

Her little heart was silent

Overwhelming was her death

Breath stolen by Evil

In this haunted house of hell

It tried to steal her brother’s breath

Making it a double kill … but well

Somewhere in the darkness

A spirit of light stepped through the veil

She held this evil force at bay

Allowing the child to breathe and wail

Timothy’s life spared that day

To further the family tree

Fathering Justin, Michael, and Lyndsey

To end Evil’s tyranny

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

 

Calvin saw Leora Grace’s light

While standing on the deck

He was mesmerized

He searched for her by night

Evil left its haunted realm

Heading out to sea

Guiding the torpedo

Laughing in sinister glee

To the bottom of the sea

It sent the Royalty Crown

Only one died that day

Curse comes full circle round

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Decisions, decisions, decisions

Give up their quest or stay

Sinister clouds loom high

Sister walks insanity’s way

Two brothers now debate

Pray they’re not too late

To stay, insanity looms

Snaring their sister dear

Haunting cries call out

Calling their sister near

Two brothers now debate

Pray they’re not too late

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Dreams in darkness

Dreams of fear

Weakens the heart

Draws insanity near

Shine a light on your fear

Hold it to the light of day

See the demon stand your ground

Never allow your mind to stray

Dark dreams convey a sinister being

Scientific study clears the mind

Is it her own face she sees?

Her mirror image is who she’ll find

Run don’t walk from Evil’s plot

Dreams given for a reason

Warns you away from danger

Saves you for a new season

Dreams guide body and soul

Away from Evil’s Claw

Heed the warnings child

Or feel the bite in Evil’s Jaw

 

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Home is where the heart is

A place where there’s no fear

Board the plane to safety

Mother’s arms are near

Demons can’t possess you

Within your hearth and home

Join hands siblings three

From loved ones never roam

Demons will find you

Wherever you may go

You can stand and face them

If you have your faith in tow

Greed has gone asunder

Wealth has lost its worth

Join spirits of light

Ordained from your birth

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

This epilogue will find you

Joining hands and hearts

With those spirits walking

Those who walk apart

Curse will soon be ending

Love will be the test

Carry on my children

Lead the spirits to their rest

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

Mayweather House lost in the past

Where love is lost as well

Cruelly beaten down

By demons straight from hell

These demons joined forces

Till the many became one

Locked inside one entity

Now Evil has its fun

Take away their laughter

Begin their lives of pain

They will curse God

In sunshine and in rain

Evil’s thunder clouds formed

But still the sun shone through

Their faith has told the story

God will make their love anew

Evil gnashes its teeth

For it knows it cannot win

God’s love so strong

Has defeated sin

Teika called out a prayer

She was tested long and hard

God saw her inner goodness

 Underneath her back so scarred

Take my hand dear child

On a walk of faith with me

You’ll know my forgiving nature

Through My Spirit, My Son, and ME

I am the Holy Trinity

The Blessed Three in One

Your sin was covered

By My Only SON

*

Echoes in the rain

Bring down this house of pain

*

I’m healed at last

My soul is free

No one will hear

The cry of the Banshee

Lovers unite

Together at last

Teika’s curse

Now in the past

No more scars

Healed in the rain

God’s Holy Fountain

With those who suffered

I stand in God’s Light

Demons disbanded

Away from my sight

Evil was sent

Into the mire

Gnashing its teeth

Burning with fire

For a season

Evil had its way

Wreaking havoc

On those who pray

God said enough

Your time is done

My dear children

Bask in the SON

I’VE turned it around

Peace reigns supreme

Ye spirits of light

Robes washed all agleam

No mourning is heard

No more tears to cry

All tears whipped away

And you’ll never die

I’VE called my children home

There’s sunshine in the rain

And forever
