Horror Haiku Collection: The Land Of The Damned

Poetry By: Philip Roberts
Horror



As long as you make a short, sharp statement with each haiku, the theme can be anything. In this collection I have given a mixture of science-fiction and horror verses.

THE LAND OF THE DAMNED
Minds of twisted killers
Bent on spreading terror,
Through this evil land.

THROUGH THE
NIGHT FOREST (II)
Air vibrating with fear
As large, dark creatures lope,
Through the night forest.

A TIME OF EVIL
Even saintly folk
Feel the call to evil from,
The devil within.

TIMES LONG PAST
Morbid memories
Of times long past: when the world
First knew great evil.

TITANIC BEINGS
Colossal beings:
Demons of titanic size,
And titanic strength.

TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT
Borrowed images
A reflexion of your life;
Too close for comfort.

TORMENTED THOUGHTS
Morbid fantasies
Invading your fevered mind,
Tormenting your thoughts.

TORRID DREAMS
Through your torrid dreams
A nameless abomination,
Stalks the foul night.

TOTEMS OF DEATH
Totems of death spread
Terror among victims of,
Native gods amok.

TWILIGHT APPROACHES (II)
Walking to your death
Your life is fast running out:
Twilight approaches.

TWILIGHT EYES
Twilight's eyes are eyes
That see terror: watching death
Creep ever nearer.

UNBEARABLE DREAMS
Unbearable dreams
Coming to life late at night,
Or so it seems.

UNBEARABLE TERRORS
Unbearable terrors
Invading your sick mind,
From all sides at once.

THE MENTOR
Evil deeds performed
By a wicked master,
Passing on evil acts.

MIDNIGHT IN HELL (I)
Lost souls tormented by
Fiends with razor-sharp fangs,
And lethal black talons.

MIND CLOSE TO TERROR
Mind close to terror
Of slithering/s in the dark,
Closing in on you.

A MOONLIT ALTAR (II)
Loathsome creatures crawl
Toward a moonlit altar,
Where fallen priests chant.

MORBID FANTASIES (Ct)
Morbid fantasies
Cthulhu is your lover,
Terror your only friend.

MUGGSLY
It was a nightmare
About a slug named Muggsly:
We all wish him dead!

MURDER AFTER
MIDNIGHT
A mind bent on murder
Hunting through the dark streets,
In the early morn.

A MURDEROUS HAND
A murderous hand
Raised to deliver pain through,
Thin, evil fingers.

THE MUSIC OF DEATH
Horrible wailing:
A satanic orchestra plays,
Music of death.

THE MUSIC OF DOOM (I)
Music resounding
Deep within your mind is,
Keeping you entranced.

SONG OF THE SIREN
The sound of the night:
A siren's sweet song of death,
Calls you to your doom.

STRONG HANDS
Strong hands are gripping
Tightly round your neck, squeezing
With all of their might.

THE SUPERSTITION (I)
Beast of great evil
Knowledge withheld from science,
Thought superstition.

THE SWEAT OF FEAR
Fear oozing off you
Like sweat in the summer heat,
Burning up from fright.

THE SWEAT OF TERROR
A humid night air
Brings on the sweat of terror,
As night creatures wake.

SWINE-VOICED CREATURES
Swine-voiced creatures scamper
Round outside your window,
Trying to break in.

A TARANTULA
A tarantula crawling
Across your moist groin,
You're too scared to breath.

TEMPLE GODS AWAKEN
Temple gods awake
When ancient curses call them,
To punish blasphemies.

TERROR CONTROLS YOUR LIFE
You search for a way
To escape from the terror,
That controls your life.

TERROR DRAWING NEAR
Your sense of fear rises
The air vibrates with horror,
Terror drawing near.

TERROR IN THE MOONLIGHT
In the still of night
Lethal creatures spreading,
Terror to all they meet.

NIGHT DEMONS HUNTING
Sensing fresh blood
Night demons shrill, as they go
Hunting after
midnight.

NIGHT EAGLES

Night eagles flying
Just above the rooftops,
Watching you intently.

NIGHT EVIL

Evil stalks the streets
Hunting down the innocent,
Late one moonless night.

NIGHT EVIL BECKONING

Evil beckoning
In the dark and soulful night,
Death is coming soon.

NIGHT EVIL STALKING
Evil walking by
Killers stalking the darkness,
Murder all in sight.

NIGHTFALL COMES
Darkness is growing
Spreading its evil influence,
As nightfall comes.

THE END
