#OctoberFrights Dark Poetry Corner


Welcome to final day of the October Frights Blog Hop!


Today I bring you my annual dark Poetry Corner, and a spotlight on my newly released book, Horror Haiku Pas de Deux. Oh, and a freebie. Enjoy. 


First a poetic teaser...



Second a spotlight...



Horror Haiku Pas de Deux by A. F. Stewart







In the shadows—voices.
Calling, screaming, moaning.
Countless tongues telling tales...
of Hell
of Monsters
and Unnatural Things

Come chase the dark words, fall into the spell of terror and sit with the poetic weaver as you watch the world burn. Horror Haiku Pas de Deux is a volume of poetry mixing horror with haiku and verse to chill your bones.
Poetic beauty lives forever with the undead.


Horror Haiku Pas de Deux is available all October for 99 Cents at


Smashwords  Amazon  Amazon Canada  Kobo  Barnes and Noble  iTunes

And now some poems...







He watches, he waits
Do you see him? He sees you.
Soon you will vanish

Ever More


Tap, tap, come the raven,
no, it is not him
He flies far above the path
as the light grows ever dim

Flee, flee, into the woods
ignore the raven’s caw
Hear the silent monster march
to the cavern in the maw

Shush, shush, quiet now
the raven circles here
The Faerie Queen calls for you
and all that you hold dear

The Sound of Their Breathing

I watch the world inhale, exhale
each fragile breath so slight;
simple to asphyxiate, faces turning pale
I watch the world inhale, exhale
dreaming how to make them quail,
to quiver in fear, to scurry in flight
I watch the world inhale, exhale
each fragile breath so slight

Play a Tune Nevermore

Eagles fly
from the labyrinth
of darkened halls
chased by ravens
and a mournful dirge.

Yeah, they're fun. You should check out the #HorrorHaikuesday Twitter hashtag on Tuesday. Some great poets post their horrifying haiku.
