A tale in Haiku

Here is something horrible that I came up with. The whole story is in haiku. I will do my best to post something new for each of the 12 Days of Creepfest. I won’t promise it but I will try.


Long dark curly hair

Skin like hot creamy coffee

Does she taste sweet to


Dark doom creeping close

A shadowed fiend creeping up

To hunt you tonight


I listen to you

Talking and talking some more

Shutting my mind down


Without my mind’s eye

The door is left unguarded

The others come in


We watch her crying

A rain of both blood and tears

Making us want more


You try to talk now

But no words are coming out

We tore out your tongue


Giggle and giggle

And giggle some more, because

Blood is so much fun


Just one little cut

Is never enough for us

That’s too bad for you


He he he ha ha

Wearing your heart on your sleeve

That was a good one


No no no no no

They got loose again last night

Now what have I done


Was that one human

I wonder what his name was

Oh god, that poor girl


One of them’s alive

None have survived before now

Oh god, what to do


I hear them whisper

“Finish the last one off please”

Can I live with that?


I will die for this

I am in for quite a shock

If they can catch me


That wasn’t so bad

I think I get what they do

No more me, just we

    Fellow author hopping for Creepfest here. Nice to meet you.

    Last day to win a signed copy of Deadlines: An Anthology of Horror and Dark Fiction, featuring my short story. From Comet Press. I will be hosting another contest starting tomorrow. 🙂
