Poem - London


London dreams
Of Dickinson days
When its secrets
Were swathed in fog.

Resource - How To Write A Horror Cinquain

I stumbled upon the following article on suite101.com How To Write A Horror Cinquain by Terrie Leigh Relf. It's a good introduction to the form with some great examples.

As for Suite101, I will be checking out more of their articles, I'd recommend my readers to search for poetry and horror.

Website updates

I have had a busy Saturday morning updating the main website, I decided to give my bio-frags project its own page on the website. They can be read here.

I have also added more links to the Horror Poets page.

The next big thing I need to do for the site is find an artist to design a header graphic for me.

Free Read - Poem - I Am Dead

Dry your tears
I am dead
but I am not gone.

It is I who watches
you while you sleep, it
is I who sits on the edge
of your bed in the dark of night.

Shh, don’t be afraid
it is I who reaches
under the covers
and grasps your ankle
in my cold hand.
