Horror Poetry ~ Ever tried it?


about a worse nightmare scenario?
by Madeleine Sara


This poem is based on a programme I saw last year (Season 10 Episode 5) where Traffic Cops investigate an apparent hit and run of a cyclist on an empty, unlit motorway slip road.


 Scifihaiku have one of my haiku up on their webpage as we speak...

  3. It seems to be accidental and not her fault.

    Effective.

  4. HI, Madeleine,

    Graphic piece. I like your poetry. You always manage to convey emotion in so few words.

  5. Maybe because of Poe, I associate horror and poetry quite readily. I really enjoyed yours.

  6. That was pretty dark - works well though.

    Nearest I've come to horror poetry is one I wrote (sort of on a dare) about zombies. I sold it to an anthology (of zombie poetry) so the whole thing had a happy ending.

    I like happy endings.

  7. I like poetry, but not tried writing any. I like what you've done, particularly, 'Something large collides into her screams.' Vivid.

  8. This one is definitely different from what I have so far read. But I like your mix of adjectives. Great imagery, full of emotion. Nice :)

  10. Hi Madeleine,

    Sorry for my absence. Have been recuperating from a rather surreal time at the hospital.

    I'm digging this horror poetry. Any poetry I attempt is a horror!

    Be well, my friend.

    Gary :)
