Horror Haiku Collection: Midnight In Hell

Poem by: Philip Roberts

Summary

Despite what the know-it-alls think, there are minimal rules to writing haiku. It is best to stick to 17 syllables or less; but even that is not a golden rule.

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

THE ARMS OF EVIL
Evil surrounds us
Spreads its arms like a lover,
Calls us to our doom.

ATMOSPHERE HEAVY WITH GLOOM
Mood dark as thunder
Atmosphere heavy with gloom,
Evil soon appears.

BELOW
Demons at anvils
Working upon the lost souls,
Of those sent below.

THE DESOLATE
Life’s highs and lows bring
Hot, salty tears of despair,
From the desolate.

DUNGEON OF DEATH
A dungeon of death
Houses sallow-faced corpses,
Which rise again at dusk.

EERIE EYRIES
Desolate mountains
Containing eerie eyries,
Where red-eyed fiend lurk.

ELDER GODS WAR (Ct)
On doom-laden Yuggoth
Faraway in space and time,
Elder gods war.

EVIL HAPPENINGS
Evil happening
The icy cold grip of death,
Strikes the unwary.

EVIL YET UNDONE
Dark shadows lurching
At unsuspecting couples,
Evil yet undone.

FROM OUT OF TIME AND SPACE
Insectile monsters
From out of time and space,
Feast on humanity.

HALLOWE’EN CALLING
Hallowe’en calling:
Witches and goblins ride out,
On their special night.

THE HALO OF DOOM
A halo of doom:
Disasters dogging your life,
Evil walks with you.

HORRORON THE WAY
Wispy shapes moving
Give an omen of what nears;
Horror on the way!

THE IMMORTAL DARKNESS
Night’s spreading shadows
Hiding leering, slinking things,
Creeping up behind.

IN THE GRIP OF TERROR (II)
In terror’s tight grip
You flee through the horrid night,
Red-eyed fiends pursue.

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

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 slitherings 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!

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.

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

THE STREETS OF FEAR
Corpse-like creatures hunt
Through deserted streets where,
The living hide in fear.

WAYON DOWN
Dark arms reaching out
From the very depths of hell,
Drag the living down.

YOUR ONLY FRIEND [DEATH DREAMS (II)]
Death fills all your dreams
Terror your waking moments;
Fear your only friend.
