Shadow Poetry Must Be Dark

Creeping out of the night shadows,
dead bodies start to decompose.
Wherever.

A living corpse cannot be dead,
a bride for him, she must be wed.
Whenever.

Unpleasant feelings bring the strange,
ideas in his head sure to derange.
Whatever.

Darkness is what he most feared,
until that ghostly dude appeared.
Whoever.

There would be no happy ending.
No need to keep on pretending,
forever.

    1. I probably should have explained that this poem has to be composed of 5 stanzas and each stanza needs to have 3 lines and line one must rhyme with line two and line 3 must contain a compound word, piece of cake right.
