The Macabre Masterpiece: Poems of Horror and Gore by Justin Bienvenue
An anthology of fifty poems of the creepy, the eerie and the even down right horrific. Five chapters about all things gruesome, strange and unknown. Hell, a look into and take on the underworld as we have come to know it. Blood, the tales of the notorious red liquid from different levels. Creatures, some of histories most beloved and feared monsters each with their own little twist. Creepy, poems of things that leave us shaken and hidden deep under our covers scared out of our minds. Suspense, tales that leave us scared but turning the page and gripping the edge of our seats wanting more. The Macabre Masterpiece, a sure scare, treat and must read for all horror and poetry lovers out there.
The Spirit of the dead is near, they’ve asked me to bring you all here, I can see it in your eyes, you all look despaired..
The need for bloodshed is done in the back of the shed in the back of the head until the back is red..
Crouching in position posing in perfect posture, on the rooftop of a gothic cathedral sits a monster..
GUEST POST:I picked out two poems, "The Rage of Hades" and "Zombies" for Justin. Specific lines in these spoke to me, and I was curious to find out more about their inspiration...
An interesting thing about the poem “The Rage of Hades” is that it was not originally a horror poem. I wasn’t inspired to write it in fact I wrote this after getting upset one day and I let my mind and thoughts get carried away so I started writing and out came this poem. If you read it however you can take a horror aspect from it. The poem is about the God of the dead Hades and he’s making an angry proclamation to not be messed with of defied or you will pay the consequences. I came across this when I was going through my poems and thought it has such anger and demonic like tendencies that I could consider this a horror poem and put it in the book and that’s exactly what I did. I didn’t make any changes to it so what you read is how it always has been however when you read it and know I explained it maybe you interpret it in two different ways.
The poem “Zombies” was probably written when I was watching a zombie movie. I know how boring right? Well the first thing to note of this poem is it has more of a humourous take on Zombies then being scary. It kind pokes fun at them and kind of even questions their all around scare factor when I break it down. The rhyming is a bit dull but again it’s all in good fun so going over the top wouldn’t fit. While it may not be the creepiest zombie poem ever written look at it this way, if we have a Zombie apocalypse and your feeling scared and unsure of what to do just read this poem to put you at ease, maybe it’ll make you feel better about them knowing their slow and clumsy.
My name is Justin Bienvenue. I am 24 years old and live in Attleboro, MA. I like to consider myself a creative thinker and brainstormer. I enjoy writing because it gives me a way to put my creative ideas into perspective and down on paper. I get inspiration from just about anything, whether it be real or fiction, I always try to do something innovative and different. Poetry is something I have enjoyed reading and writing for some time now. I find it to be a great way of self-expression, putting your feelings down and a sweet sounding piece of work with all of its rhythm and other literary devices. I decided to write a book because I wanted more people to read and appreciate my work and I believe it to be really good and worth being made into a book. Whether you like poetry, horror or just like to read all together I believe you will enjoy reading my book. It's got a little bit of everything and has a good mix of different types of the horror genre. My writing always has either meaning or takes the readers imagination into a whole new perspective. This is what I as a writer, creator and author try to do, this is why I write, to bring out expression and to make my work enjoyable not just for me, but for all who will enjoy and appreciate it as well.
