Horror & Vampire Haiku Set #007

THE ACID MAN (20/05/2021)
The Acid Man spreads
Hydrochloric acid,
Dissolving all insight.

THE ACID MAN COMES (20/05/2021)
The Acid Man comes
Out of a swamp of acid,
Spewing out his death

THE ACID MAN DESTROYS (20/05/2021)
Dissolving anyone
Who gets within his reach,
The Acid Man destroys.

THE ACID MAN'S FOOD (20/05/2021)
Dissolving people
Whose remains join his swap.
Is how he gets his food.

THE ACID MAN'S HOME (20/05/2021)
A swamp of acid
Is the Acid Man's home,
Provides his sustenance.

THE ACID MAN'S PLEASURE (20/05/2021)
Spreading chaos round
The Acid Man loves killing,
His only pleasure.

THE ACID MAN'S SWAMP (20/05/2021)
Like living molasses
The Acid Man leaves his swamp,
Hoping soon to kill.

THE BUGLER PLAYS (19/05/2021)
The Bugler playing
A tune of death and madness,
A tune of terror.

THE BUGLER SIGNALS (19/05/2021)
The Bugler signals
A time of constant death,
Time of constant fear.

THE DARKLING (19/05/2021)
Terror drawing near
Man-shaped but without features,
The Darkling lives on fear.

THE DARKLING FEEDING (19/05/2021)
The Darkling feeding
Upon fear and frustration,
Driving people mad.

THE DARKLING FEEDS (19/05/2021)
The Darkling resides
Within all children's nightmares,
Feeding on their fears.

THE DARKLING GROWS (19/05/2021)
Living off sorrow
Terror and our mistrust,
The Darkling grows stronger.

THE ICEMAN'S HERE (19/05/2021)
Turning people to ice
Turning deserts to oceans,
The Iceman's here.

THE ICEMAN SLAUGHTERS (19/05/2021)
Freezing people to death,
The Iceman slaughters,
Everything he detects.

INFERNO (19/05/2021)
Man of living fire
Inferno can burn deserts,
Or water in streams.

INFERNO AT WORK (19/05/2021)
Streets a fiery Hell
Buildings collapsing within,
Inferno at work.

INFERNO DESTROYS (19/05/2021)
Inferno destroys
Everything he encounters,
Nought resists his flames.

THE SLEEPER WAKES
Pale light of candles
Flickering round a casket,
As the sleeper wakes.

THE SWEETEST WINE
Flesh torn in frenzy
To get at the sweetest wine,
From a severed throat.

SWEETMEAT
Blood oozes from wounds
As an ancient creature devours,
The sweetest meat.

SWEET NECTAR
Jugulars severed,
To get at the sweet nectar,
Of a lovely throat.

TELL-TALE SIGNS
Signs of dealings with
The Undead: Tell-tale red marks,
On tender young throats.

THE THIRST QUENCHER
Hot liquid flowing
From severed jugulars,
Quenching evil thirsts.

TO FEED THE STARVING MASSES
Hungry mouths feasting
As arteries give up their,
Warm, sweet, red nectar.

THE UNDEAD AWAKEN
Coffins burst open
Upheaving their contents,
Releasing the Undead.

VAMPIRE BATS NIBBLE
Vampire bats nibble
Gently at your earlobe, then
Suckle at your throat.

A VAMPIRE CALLING
A vampire waiting
Outside your bedroom window,
Gently calls your name.

VAMPIRES
Vampires are clawing
At your eyes, at your throat,
Is it only a dream?

VAMPIRES SENSE LIFE
Vampires sense life;
Smell the blood of the living,
And move in for the kill.

VEILED FACES IN THE NIGHT (II)
Fearful of daylight
Beautiful veiled women,
Creep about by night.

THE WALKING DEAD
Crumbling gravestones mark
The resting place of people,
Still seen walking round.

WARNING SIGNS OF DANGER
Bats fly near your window
Warning you of danger:
Evil lurking near.

WAYS AND MEANS
Cleansing with fire
Or impaling with sharp stakes:
Ways to deal with vampires.

WAYS TO KILL VAMPIRES
Cleansing with holy fire;
Impaling with sharp stakes:
Ways to “kill” vampires.

WEDDING NUPTIALS
Fish-eyed stare on the face
Of a dead husband, returned
To his wife’s bed.

WINGED DEATH
Hordes of flying death
Winging above the city,
Seeking human prey.

WRAITH-LIKE CREATURES STALK
Wraith-like creatures stalk
Through dark, deserted alleys,
Hunting human prey.

YOURS TRULY FROM HELL
Nourished down the ages
By blood of killers, he
Becomes another Jack.

ZERO HOUR APPROACHES
Giant bat wings flap
Overhead while you sleep,
Zeroing in on you.
