Halloween is approaching and I'm in the mood for some spooky words. You?  I hope so because we're having a contest!  :skull:

We are working in conjunction with :iconhaikuwrimo: and :iconpoets-and-warriors: on this one. This contest spans all three groups!

We challenge you to write a HorrorKu (a haiku that is haunting, spine-chilling, SCARY  :chainsaw: ).
It can be any variation of haiku, no limits.

The deadline is October 30th.

I watch it slither upward
His chest a cage of flowers

Feeding an intricate vase,
Soon our Lord will rise.

Horror HaikuSounding the alarm           
as the mental ward empties
I'm free to murder
Your life slowly leaves   
your body while decaying   
but then you return     
You've been lost inside 
the body of the puppet
in a children's show     
Hear in the city           
your invisible screaming
  echoes off the walls    
     
I wrote a story
a haiku about horror
IT ALL BECAME REAL

Ghost Storythe board said, "hello."
i said, "what is it you want?"
"tell us how you died."
    BloatedWhite, soft, and spongy
Bloated and drifting away,
No longer in pain.

Vehicular
Don’t blame me he cried
The car stank like a brewery
Never saw the kid

    GatheringTrees gather in woods
At night with a sacrifice
Who brought his own noose

Dreadful Diagnosis
Disbelief set in
One word changes everything
The test found cancer

    Worse Than DeathWhat is worse than death?
When the parasite escapes
And lives on after.

Infected
Disbelief sets in
Horror is all perspective
You’ve been infected

    Bite SizedMost creatures don’t care
If their meal is still alive
In bite sized pieces.

Real Horrors
There are a few things
Far scarier than zombies
Real life tragedies

    Haunting HaikuIt comes late at night
I'm exhausted, can not fight
Consuming my light
Like a clouded haze
I lose track of all the days
In me, something lays
Who have I let in
Enveloped by possession
Angel or demon
Who assumes my stead
Are they living, are they dead
The voice in my head
How much of it's me
I lose myself, it's scary
Sometimes, it's creepy
You come and you go
Why it is, I'll never know
Just that, it is so
So do as you please
My spirit is yours to seize
Take my soul and squeeze
Take hold, have your way
Say the things you have to say
Don't seal me away
Like a clouded mist
I slowly cease to exist
For I can't resist
And when I am gone
Will you still continue on
Or be left alone
Leave me a small shred
Hear the words I know I've said
Through the thoughts you've fed
I'm use to haunting
But, sometimes it is daunting
What is it wanting

A chilly October night
I've come to take you.

Words Left Unsaid
No apology
Never got to say goodbye
Tortured by regret

The Hanged Man
Frightened by his text
She dashed to his apartment
He was hanging there

Revenge
He sleeps peacefully
The sharp steel gleams in her hand
Now the hurting stops
