Wicked Zombies

YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!

Hello my dark friends!

My name is Thom Olausson, and I am a horror poet & writer from Sweden. I don't know if any of you have read my work, so I'll post two horror poems for you to read here. First of all: Do you like reading horror poetry? Not poems about love and puppies, but sinister poems that takes your mind into the dark corners of imagination? My personal favorite horror poem is Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor. Iron Maiden did an excellent song with the same name based on that poem, and it is that song that got me hooked on the genre. Which is YOUR favorite?
Here are two horror poems written by me, they are both taken from my new book POETRY FROM HELL'S ASYLUM (published through Panic Press Books and full of morbid illustrations in the same style as the covers of Cannibal Corpse's albums, Morbid Mike is the name of the artist):

APOCALYPSE OF DECAY
Thom Olausson © all rights reserved

The rugged surface on a withered gravestone
A moss-covered mausoleum lay silent
Darkness as black as the Devil’s backbone

An ancient dead oak standing eerie and tall
Its skeletal remains beneath the starlit sky
Looks like a corpse’s hand curled into a ball

A rusty iron fence blackened by time and age
In silence it guards the dead in this place
The Grim Reaper nods and turns another page

In this cemetery silent tombs echoes with Time
Dust covered corpses sleeping within
About to become victims of a most heinous crime

A hooded figure from Necronomicon aloud reads
The air is vibrant with demonic beings
The dark Sumerian Gods the hooded man pleads

His ancient words seeps into the sacred ground
They enter the moist and dark crypts
The dead stirs as they hear the demonic sound

Called back they rise from their graves as one
A sinister exodus of decayed corpses
Only the moon is a witness to what has been done

The Apocalypse of the living dead has now started
People sleep in their beds oblivious to it
Come daylight most will be among the souls departed…

***and this horror poem:

WORLD OF ROT
Thom Olausson © all rights reserved

A city of rot glimmers in the moonlight
Zombies roam the dead streets
Car wrecks and skeletons litter them
Cracked sidewalks are jammed with decay

Smashed windows baring their jagged teeth
Crooked road signs draped with rust
A vile and sinister feeling lingers in the air
A city of Death this place has become

Dilapidated are the glass and steel towers
Yet vibrant souls resonates in the dark
The undead moan and groan in the night
Their cold brains alive with eternal hunger

Flesh is what they crave and desperately need
Only warm blood shall sooth their pain
From Hell they have risen as One
Their dead mouths will tear the tender flesh

And across the ocean floor they stumble
Towards land wherever that may be
Out from sunken ships they crawl
All bloated, wrinkly, and covered with seaweed

Everywhere in this world of Rot the dead walks
We cannot even begin to fathom the horror
Yet this world of the dead is ours to come
These words are only a tiny glimpse of our future…

As for zombie movies, I simply LOVE that genre! I love playing the zombie-games as well, like Resident Evil and Dead Rising for instance. I even wrote a story in honor of the genre, it is called "...THE END" and was recently voted 2nd prize winner by the readers in the FIELDS OF ROT COMPETITION. To get that kind of acknowledge from the Readers is the greatest honor a writer can get in my opinion!

Yours Darkly

I am honored! I have a new zombie-poem I have written called BLACK CURSE, should I add it here tomorrow?
YOU are the best! Hugs from Sweden!
cool stuff...question if we may, can we post poems in this thread?
That'd be awesome! I would LOVE to read other people's horror poetry... And I am glad you liked my work Redrum =)

So, here is my latest horror poem. I wrote it in the middle of the night when my sciatica was torturing me:

 

Black Curse

By Thom Olausson © all rights reserved 2011

 

I curse this corpse that lay here in its grave

A puppet of rotten flesh and infested with worms it’ll be

It shall do my bidding, my servant, my obedient slave

 

I will speak to it through an ancient incantation

Eternal Hunger and Hate I will fuse into its cold brain

To it I will sing Dark Hymns of insanity and damnation

 

I will awake it from its deep and restless sleep

It shall obey my every sinister command; a Slave of the Flesh

This hellish creature will make even the angels weep

 

My enemies will be slaughtered by this wicked thing

It shall devour their hearts and annihilate their puny lives

Then their souls back to Hell it will bring

 

So I place my black curse upon this Child of Rot

So that it may stalk my foes and make them wish for death

He will become the kind of creature even God forgot…

Stopping IN

It's been awhile since I have been home here on Wicked Zombies...I've been doing so much searching within this outer world of life...

   I've since gotten re-married and have been working back in security for the last couple of years. Have started back writing again and have purchased an actual house. It's hard being away from my family even though I need to work and support them, but it's a shame a person has to work so much that they miss their kids growing up...

   Well…
