Day 21 Napowrimo

‘twas was all dark inside

inside the mouth of the house

‘twas the mouth that ate us all

when we joyfully ran around

‘twas joyful sharing our lives

Napowrimo prompt:

Our (optional) prompt. Have you ever heard or read the nursery rhyme, “There was a man of double deed?” It’s quite creepy! A lot of its effectiveness can be traced back to how, after the first couplet, the lines all begin with the same two phrases (either “When the . . .” or “Twas like,”). The way that these phrases resolve gets more and more bizarre over the course of the poem, giving it a headlong, inevitable feeling.

Though I had intended to use some other repetition I finally ended up using the ones in the example and since I had just watched "The Haunting of the Hill House", I used that series as my inspiration for this poem. It does have the sense of a nursery rhyme and the desired spookiness, I guess. To complete the effect, I thought I should use a spooky font as well. So what do you think?

Do let me know your views on both my art+alliteration and my poem. You can click on the AtoZChallenge/ Napowrimo tags to look at my earlier posts.

This was eerie. Liked how you used a different font to enhance the effect.

My heart did begin to pound wondering what horror would unfold next. Liked your creepy Dracula font too

Quite spooky and eerie... Recently I had watched some horror movie... This poem made me remind of the scenes in it!
