SMM EVENT: Write a Halloween Themed Haiku

Halloween’s ghoulish fingers are wiggling through the ground—soon the dark spirit will once again rise from the dead. You still haven’t stabbed an innocent pumpkin? Ye gads! SMM’s goblins are here to solve your squishy dilemma. Aw, look at that! All this candy is affecting your ability to frown, isn’t it? Tsk-tsk. No worries, take this serrated thing. Trust me.

Now, where did I put my knife? Ahhhh, here it is…yes, do you like sharp cheese? You’ll love the taste of my knife…now, let’s start carving.

Hey—where’d you go?

A Word From Erica Borey

icm_fullxfull.130264559_ir7n6iw9migw0c0cgw0oI’m just a lady that likes to paint people, pets, and random things I am inspired by, like Over the Garden Wall, awesome movies, and my baby girl. My strengths are watercolor, oil, and pencil, and my weaknesses are self-promotion and charging a respectable amount for a customized piece of art. I think my work is pretty darn good if I do say so myself, and you will probably like it if you get some.

Step into my pot
is it boiling, is it not?
All Hollows Eve stew.

2. oglach

A knock on the door—
could it be trick-or-treaters?
Shit! It’s her husband!

3. Enigma

Your trick is my treat
Your blood, my favorite flavor
Your screams mesmerize

I live for your doom
I pray for your sweet demise
I feast upon you

I find the darkness
Soothing… warm and beautiful
My thoughts fade to black

I hide inside dreams
Yet the sunlight reveals me
And so i recoil

Broken and alone
I become my addiction
A hunter by night

Only blood redeems
Only flesh can unburden
And so I seek you

Candies in the bowl,
Knocking – different this time

    On Halloween night,
    I will howl at the full moon.
    My fur will grow soon.

    I make a poor troll.
