The below poem is based on the movie Evil Dead (2013). Although the storyline is a bit changed in the end, its almost the same. Also, since its my first time that I have written a poem based on a horror theme, please comment on it. :)

Evil Dead

Five people gathered in a dilapidated hall,
Their motto was to cure the one,
The one who had consumed drugs all,
Thinking nothing can go wrong under the sun
But misfortune befell them all

Down went one into the basement,
Found a book of witchcraft,
Thinking it as some form of entertainment,
Ignoring the warning, he read the entire craft,
Putting the ailed into further ailment

The spirit entered the drug befallen,
Went on to consume the soul,
Her face, her arms were swollen,
Her mouth smiled a dirty scrawl,
And out the spirit spread like a pollen

Into another girl she went,
The one who was a doctor,
Her soul under her capture,
Her mouth, a blood tincture

Exorcism, was what they sought,
But evil they had begot,
Each one’s body was under rot and the soul was caught,
Leaving everyone for nought
But Fate is mysterious,
Allowed the drug addict life,
Her rage was ferocious,
And she strove to bring strife,
To kill the one who tortured her brother and his wife

Out came the demon, hunting for the last one,
The former addict all caution shun,
She picked up the chainsaw and switched it on,
And rammed it inside the demon spawn
Sinking it down into the blood-soaked lawn,
And she emerged victorious at the break of dawn.

Here ya go.

The Wait

Those biting hours, that ticking clock,
Seeing the armed lovers, with their little Chuck,
Makes me wonder how will be my little buck

Waiting in the hall outside,
Waiting for the news from inside,
My Love going through labouring pains,
For a child, for a Life’s gain

I think back when we met,
Kids we were and our eyes had met,
The bond was forged, the relation set

Teens we became and our love grew,
We found ourselves and re-forged anew,
We explored one another,
Through mind, body and spirit
Our relationship approved by our fathers and mothers

Marriage was the utmost bliss,
A pure and fulfilled wish,
That lovely and warm kiss,
Still makes my lip hiss

And out came I from my thoughts,
Hearing the baby’s cry that Nature wrought,
And my mind finally caught,
That the Wait was over, the Life begot

It's been a long time. :)

The Phoenix

I am the Phoenix,
With my wings of fire,
I dive like Icarus,
And I shall never tire

Reborn from my ashes,
I shall proceed,
Never give up, shall be my creed,
Broke the chains of death, I am freed

I am the Light, the One,
A person who changes everyone,
I am the sacrifice for others,
Considering everyone as my kin and brothers

The Phoenix is who I am,
I shall be Immortal and rage on,
To the red sunset and a glorious dawn

Umbrella of Thoughts

I walk around with a brain inside my head,
Comprehending all that I have read,
Reflecting on all that I have said,
I form an umbrella of thoughts overhead

An idle mind is a devil’s workshop,
Without thought your body is rot,
Keep thinking, move your head into a nod,
Of flying unicorns and centaurs that trot

As I write this, I still am thinking,
The wings of pigeons - fluttering,
The wind is blowing and the sun shining,
And that I am writing,
About the umbrella of thoughts that I am wearing

Sleep and Exams

Sleep, oh glorious sleep!
Why art thee make me weep?
Thy art a mindless heap,
Here is why I call you a creep

Thy rest me, energize me,
Thy hold me, enfold me,
Thy meld me, reshape me,
Thy refresh me and I thank thee

But thou hast learn timing,
Thou embrace me when I should study,
But no! Thou hast evil,
Thou make my head noddy

I wake up in the morning,
I find the work shoddy,
I drooled over my body,
And thou aren’t even sorry

But exams approach,
I hast write a paper tomorrow,
But thou hast evil in you,
Thou has removed me from you

Thou put me to sleep when I least need,
Thou wake me when I need the most,
Thou need to take some notes,
About how within me thou should host

The Kitten

I sit here and think of this topic,
That the pebble has finally gone psychotic,
The kitten who got abandoned it is,
I sit back and think of something witty

I am imagining myself as a kitten,
Lost, abandoned and all hope undone,
Her spirit is weak, her legs knobbly,
Listen to this poor kitten’s story

Mrrow, mrrow! I go on,
My legs are tired and all hope is gone,
I mewl and bawl all day long,
‘Where is my mistress?’, is my current song

Two-legs pass by the entire day,
Some pet me and bring me cheer,
I smell the fish somewhere,
I take it and eat is elsewhere

I go again to the green grass,
Sleepy and heady with my stomach’s mass,
But I cannot give up this morning’s pass,
To find my mistress whose kindness is vast

She took me in when I was cold,
She bathed me and took me into her fold,
She was mine and mine forever,
I am her pet, my conviction never wavers

‘I smell her scent!’, I mewl,
Excitement within me quavers,
I run to it bawling,
And find her equally mewling,

I run into her arms, her folding embrace,
Here is where I belong, my spirit ablaze,

I think this and arouse to type,
Hoping this you guys will like,
Do tell me if I got this right,
Please shoot pebble at sight

First and last stanza were incredible. Very moving :p All in all, a creative humorous piece :)

Room to Grow

I walk the earth and my destiny,
I have fame, fortune and glory,
People worship and revere me,
But only I know the follies within me

I have room to grow, room to be
Something more than the current me,
And therefore I want to be set free,
Things to understand, places to see

I set off to my desire’s call,
I do not care whether I rise or fall,
It’s the journey that matters most of all,
I shall achieve and all walls shall fall

This should help me stay active on this hobby. Please do not delete this thread pebs.

It has been too long but here you go :)

Your Voice

I sit here all day long,
With a face down by a furlong,
Awaiting to hear your melody,
Curing my heart of this malady

Your voice, so mellow
Like the autumn that turns yellow,
A voice, so sweet
Makes my heartstring weep and repeat

A voice that is fresh like the evergreen blades,
From which even Death may fade,
Speak, I plead you,
Everyone will heed you

Let your voice be carried across the meadows,
Let your voice be carried through the shadows,
Let it cross the mountains and the ravines,
Let it fill the fountains and every crevice

Let it be heard to both man and beast,
From the highest of the high eagle’s nest,
To the dead men’s rest,
Let your voice hold them behest

No more waiting. Here's the next piece:)

Being yourself

Lofty dreams, sights set high
Expectations pile, you really want to try,
But somewhere in between,
The real you dies

You become someone whom you don’t recognize,
It’s too late, you realize,
Dreams keep you awake but you still strive,
Your life seems to have taken its worst dive

Though all you need is a leap of faith,
Belief that you will rightly retake,
Your identity and your life at stake,
A majestic dolphin, leaving viewers at wake

Sure, misfortune befalls,
Sure, it seems like a wall,
However take the gall,
To hear your own call,
And thus you will have it all,

Expressionless

I sit here staring into nothing,
A blank white page which is daunting,
An empty mind which is haunting,
‘You’re expressionless’, it is taunting

I try to write something down and erase,
I try to pen some things but only to a waste,
I want to flow like a river with haste,
Rid myself of this emptiness, a never ending maze

And light breaks through, thoughts filter,
Memories flood in, darkness withers,
Words flow out, my uncertainty wavers,
I start writing down discarding all fears

Expressing oneself is poetry,
And that is how I began the journey,
Back from the throes of inactivity,
With this poem as a veracity

Holy hell! So much has changed the last I was here ^_^

New Horizons

I sit here all day long,
Staring into the sun and humming that favourite song,
The one that sings of the sun and the breeze,
The one that liberates men and frees

There is none but one thought in mind,
What a glorious world is this of mine,
The visions of the past borne fruition,
Paying tribute to the toils, the frustrations

The fluid present, glowing and clear
Obliterating the traces of fear,
Filling one with hope arrears,
Of this bright, new horizon and frontiers

The sun's a rising, a rising
The clouds are fleeting, fleeting
Signalling a new dawn and a new beginning,
The winds of change blowing, blowing
Never stopping, never stopping.

(Yeah, I'm back!)
