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
when lives simmered in lights

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?
