An attempt at being more horrific
« on: February 23, 2018, 11:42:21 AM »
POSITIVE FEEDBACK ONLY PLEASE I already know it's terrible ;D


In the corner of the shower
a grasshopper hides
fleeing the water
can't grip to the sides

roaming stainless steel
for particles and gunk
sudden darkness overwhelms
plate crashes with a 'thunk'

run for the corner
a good place to be, right?
until the corner ensnares you
with its sticky strings of white

-------------------------------------

Well, the demise of insects seems to be the closest I can get to a horror poem/story. How is your homework going, those who were at Toi Ora this week?

Insect horror is totally legit horror. I love how you have captured a small daily sort of horror.
