For many years, I had this guilty pleasure of seeing my written words come alive with images and music. Instead of waiting to have someone else produce it in to a short film, I created my own videos using Kizoa 🙂
This particular poem I wrote for a contest (October). It’s meant to be a horror poem, but it is especially horrifying for me as it is taken from my distant past of a person I once was. Long story. Perhaps one day I will be brave enough to write about it in more detail.
If you’d like to participate in YouTube Tuesday, post something from YouTube that you enjoyed and tell us a bit about it. Don’t forget to include the link to this post in yours so I can check it out. Also, if you’re on Twitter, tweet about it using the hashtag #YouTubeTuesday.
She'd been locked in the house for monthsas the undead raged outsideFamished and dehydratedshe stared out the bedroom windowand spied the pair againFor days, these cats roamed outon the limbs of the enormous hardwood treeas she wondered how they're surviving the apocalypseToday, she decided to find out and proceededto climb out the second floor slim windowpane As she dangled on the limb, she glanced belowThere her momma stood, gaping up to her daughtermouth opened and gnawing as if ravenous withflesh-thirsting hungerShe scrambled up on the branch and glanced towards the tree's coreA small hollowed hole revealed the bloody mass of flesh and boneand it was then she realized what a grave mistake she'd made
Over at my other site, Only the Lonely Press, I started a new video series called, Dead Poets Society, where I will take a poem of a given poet (long since passed on) and create a video for it. This one above is one of my favorite Robert Frost’s poems.
Below is a bit of a morbid poem written by Emily Dickinson which I absolutely love.
I plan to create more videos for this particular series in the near future.
Do you have any (short) poems by your favorite poets to suggest? If I like it (a lot), I may just create a video for it!
