Horror Haiku Collection: The Voice of the Night

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 vampire and horror verses.

ABOMINATIONS CLOSING
Frantic feet kicking
Out at abominations,
Closing for the kill.

THE ACCOUNTING
A life of evil
Finally being paid for,
In the afterlife.

THE AGONY OF DREAMS
The agony of dreams
Permeates your restless night;
Nightmares seem so real.

ALL HALLOWS EVE (II)
On All Hallows Eve
While goodness is sleeping,
Great evil surely wakes.

ALL MANNER OF EVIL
All manner of evil
Flitting through the dark night,
Hunting human food.

THE BLOOD FEAST
A blood feast practised:
An unholy ritual:
Raising of the dead!

A BLOOD OATH
A blood oath written
In the dead of night, on
A parchment, in red.

A BLOOD OATH SWORN
A blood oath sworn by
Tall, dark-hooded figures,
In the small of night.

A BLOOD-STAINED KNIFE
A blood-stained knife
Wielded in burning anger,
Striking again and again.

DANGER
Day turns to night-time
Safety turns into danger;
Something evil nears.

GLOOM
Gloom pervades the air
An aura of hopelessness,
Darking your thoughts.

THE GREAT FLOOD
A flood of fear breaks
Over you like an ocean,
Drowning all your hopes.

THE HEART OF THE MATTER
Evil surrounding you
The grip of sudden death,
Squeezing at your heart.

HUMAN DISGUISE
Attractive women
Revealing themselves as fiends,
In human disguise.

ICE DEMONS
Demons of the ice
Living within snow and sleet,
Chill you to the bone.

IMAGES
Shadowy images
Flitting just beyond sight,
Hoping soon to pounce.

THE INTENDED
Tall, dark strangers lurch
Toward intended victims,
Evil all around you.

AN OMEN OF THE FUTURE
An endless blackness
An omen of the future;
Evil approaching.

PROMISES! PROMISES!
Evil promises
Made in the black of night,
By satans messengers.

RAGE
Salty tears of rage
Crippling your better judgment,
Driving you to kill.

RELEASE

Cries of great fear
Souls lost forever to torment,
Pleading for release.

THE WASTELANDS
Death stalks the wastelands
An icy, frozen nowhere,
Nothing lives here now.

THE WAY OUT
Heavy hearts heaving
As evil surrounds us all,
Is there no way out?

WISPY SHADOWS
Wispy shadows move
Swaying side to side in glee,
Evil all about.

YELLOW EYES
Shining jet black eyes,
With piercing, yellow pupils,
And no whites at all.

AN UNSEEN TERROR (II)
An unseen terror
Chews lightly on your shoulder,
Hoping you will wake.

UNSPEAKABLE HORRORS
Dungeon-like cellars
In dusty old buildings,
Housing unspeakable horrors.

THE UNSUSPECTING
Unsuspecting walk
Along the dark night streets,
Unaware of danger.

UNWELCOME MOURNERS
Unseen figures stalk
Among unwary mourners,
Sporting black attire.

A VALKYRIE FLIES
A Valkyrie flies
To the aid of warriors,
Fallen in battle.

THE VOICE OF THE NIGHT (II)
The voice of the night:
The sweet song of the siren,
Calls you to your doom.

WAILING IN THE NIGHT (II)
Dreadful sounds of wailing
Ringing out in the night;
Lost souls in torment.

WARNING SIGNS OF DEATH
Shadowy figures
Flitting just out of your reach,
Warning signs of death.

WARNING SIGNS OF PERIL
Warning signs of peril
Danger lurking nearby,
Readying to pounce.

WARNINGS OF DANGER
Warnings of danger
Omens of death approaching,
Evil on the wind.

THE WEREWOLF CURSE
When the werewolf curse
Takes you, you howl at the moon;
Loping on all fours.

WEREWOLVES HUNTING
Werewolves run unseen;
Thunder through the dark town, hunting
Through streets and alleys.

A WILD THING POISED (I)
A wild thing poised
Ready to leap at you,
Springing for your throat.

A WINGED FURY
A winged fury
Soaring through the dark night sky,
Searching for live prey.

THE WOLFMAN
The wolfman sleeps near
In the room next door to yours,
Rising at full moon.
