Darkly Gothic Poems for Halloween

Welcome to my new WordPress blog!

My Blogger blog is now an archive, but you will find all my old posts dating back to 2010 here as well as there. As a reader, I find WordPress blog posts so much easier to read and comment upon — I hope you enjoy this new interface. Now, on to a little “warm up” for Halloween. . .

Way back in 2006 I found the Goth-O-Matic Poetry Generator and created a Feeling Very Sorry for Yourself Darkly Gothic poem entitled “Alone in Darkness.” With Halloween just around the corner, this seemed the perfect activity to resurrect from the past, especially because the link still works. I’d love to see your Goth-o-Matic poem!

Here’s my new poem of Supernatural Horror & Violence:

Dark Betrayal

Around, all around, the shadows gather.
My dread grows as the Dark One’s touch falls against my neck.
It smites me, and darkly my
essence drips
to the broken ground.
In horror I call your name
while Death’s shadow looms.
Now alone, my cry of mercy falls upon darkened eyes.

This is my doom

So fun! Do try it yourself and post in the comments if you like. Teachers, I think this activity would be great fun to use in the classroom.

STAY TUNED — my 2017 edition of Spooky Film Recommendations is coming soon.

      I’m not quite sure what is meant by “my cry of mercy falls upon darkened eyes,” but it sounds good, right? 😀

    Hooray, you are on WordPress! Now I can comment on your excellent book-related posts! (For some reason, Blogger dislikes me intensely and refuses to publish my comments, yet my cries of mercy have fallen helplessly upon Blogger’s darkened eyes).
