A Multiple Word Prompt Poem – A Letter from Beryl.

“Dearest Darling,

I thought I’d sit down and write you this letter,

I’m bored you see, and there’s nothing better,

I can think of to do to spend my time,

This yoga retreat is far from sublime!

I’m sick of the beach and the waves and the sea,

The nightlife is dull and there’s no variety.

I’ve lost track of the seashells I’ve managed to exhume.

from out of the confines of my swimming costume.

It’s so boring here I’m tempted to jump

into the canal. I’ve really got the hump.

There’s no television to watch, no booze to drink,

All I can do is sit here and think.

And even though I can’t overindulge,

there’s no sign whatever of losing my bulge!

So, Darling, I beg you, In my humble way,

Send me a big bar of Chocolate today.”

 

And that was the last letter he’d had from his Beryl,

Before she went quite mad and turned rather feral.

So before you spend a fortune on a yoga retreat,

Remember poor Beryl and just watch what you eat.

A Spooky Valentines – A macabre poem for A Guy Called Bloke’s Challenge.

art-1293869_960_720

Well it may be far too late now, but A Guy Called Bloke set a challenge to write a horror story (or Poem) including the following items:

Spooky Card

Rotten Heart

Carnivorous Chocolate Box

Haunted Balloons

Romantic Massacre

Voodoo Dolly

Undead Partner

Devilish Desire

See the posts here:

Valentine’s for Luvvies Challenge 2019 . 9

Valentine’s for Luvvies Challenge 2019 D9

 

So here is my attempt.

 

A spooky card came through the door,

I opened it up and nearly swore,

It was from a man I’d thought was dead.

He should have been, I’d chopped off his head.

 

My undead partner will turn me insane,

It seemed he’d risen up once again,

I thought I’d driven him away.

But now he’s back on Valentine’s Day!

 

This time I’ll extract his rotten heart,

A romantic massacre to tear him apart,

Or else I’ll use my voodoo doll,

Or haunted balloons, I’m on a roll.

 

Or how about a carnivorous chocolate box?

Of failing that a dose of chicken pox?

No, I’ll overindulge my devilish desire,

And burn him satanically on the fire.
