Infectious death...A zombie poem

Updated on April 16, 2011

 

The dead stumble into the night

Empty graves left open

Under the moons eerie light

Shambling bodies, decaying and rotten

 

Screams of horror piercing the air

As the undead fill the town

Remorselessly hunting without care

Dragging their terrified victims down

 

 

Blood runs down the street

As they kill all that they see

The innocent nothing more than meat

For the horde of ravenous zombies

 

Friends becoming mortal foes

With just one infectious bite

As the horror and terror grows

In the hell that has become their plight

 

Fear and agony in every shout

As the living fight for their last breath

Fire and gunshots ringing out

As they fall to the infectious death

 

With a vengeful smile and soulless eyes

She watches the chaos spread

Savouring the ghastly innocent cries

A mistress of the walking dead

      being a meal for a zombie horde is not one of my preferred ways of dying, but I can't help but being drawn to this genre again and again, so as long as I can outrun the person next to me, I may have a chance of surviving if zombies where to walk our streets :)

      Glad you liked it, thanks for the vote up!

      Very descriptive and chilling, I felt them chasing me and running me down for their next meal of brains so they can make me one of them. Could you imagine if they were for real and wandered the streets of America. It would be a real Thriller....nicely done, voted UP

      I love all things zombie,although they scare the hell out of me. Everyone made fun of me because I read zombie survival guide. They'll all run to me for help in the end.

      the dark faery tales are excellent and I can so see why you would want to be published!

      I have to admit that I am a huge fan of your dark fairy tale poems, they are wickedly good and I am hoping to see more of them, but I still think you would rock at a zombie piece of some sort :)

      and this one was very different, it was like from the zombies perspective. and it went in and out from black and white to color whenever perspectives changed, it was pretty neat

      7 years ago from Australia

      With a title like that I will have to check it out :)

      I will watch anything from the great black and white classics to the outright absurd, as long as its got zombies (or other types of supernatural beings) I'm in

      Creepy; has me wondering about that mistress of the walking dead. Is she a unique zombie? Special talents? Or just a silent observer? Don't tell me, I like wondering. This was dark and delightful, vintage nighthag. Keep up your shadowy sketches.

      Maybe there's something not right with my head after all that cerebral flatulence I had writing my last hub But I find your poem sensuous and sensual.However I will try to avoid being savoured by your seductive mistress of the walking dead :)

      ah epigramman you certainly know how to make a girl feel special,

      I am thrilled that this poem of mine has again inspired you, as much as I enjoy your lighter side, I have to admit its your darker pieces that I adore.

      So while still blushing from being called your muse I will race over and read -Dead end diary

      thanks so much for your fantastic comments you have honestly surprised me with your praise

      ...well you know what's gonna happen don't you - lol lol - when the epi-man comes here he gets a lot of ideas in his head - and because he has spending far too much time writing the lovey dovey stuff again and children's smiles and odes to God - he really has to let loose and join forces with the dark side - so it will have to be a zombie piece in the next day or two thanks to you - and your most excellent zombie poem - you are my muse!
