Horrorworld by demonrobber Horrorworld :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 18 0
A horror show with Mickey Mouse
Donald Duck in a haunted house
A pantomime with Cinderella
At the end she kills that Charming fella
Clap hands, take your stance
All join in The Thriller dance
A Winter spectacular with Bloody Snow White
Horrorworld is always a spine-chilling night

Winter Ghosts by demonrobber Winter Ghosts :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 35 10
Winter Ghosts
Winter Ghosts
Winter ghosts glide across the snow
With no particular place to go
Listen to their melancholic chants
Join them in a macabre dance
They sleepwalk across the decades
Despair grows as hope fades
Treat them well and they will set you free
Otherwise you will remain for eternity

The Puppet's Christmas Dream by demonrobber The Puppet's Christmas Dream :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 35 7
The Puppet's Christmas Dream
The Puppet's Christmas Dream
On Christmas Day dreams come true
Some puppets have dreams too
The puppet wants to be set free
She wishes to gain her liberty
She imagines sitting on a crescent moon
And dancing to a happy tune
On Christmas Day her wish is granted
The whole world now seems so enchanted
No more pulling of strings
What happiness her freedom brings
She loves to choose her own way
She loves to sing and play
We are all tied up in chains
"Set them free" the puppet exclaims
The puppet master considers this remark
There is a sudden flash and spark
All the chains fall to the ground
What a wonderful sound
The puppet master has set us free
Christmas is our day of liberty
Freedom is a glorious thing
Listen to the puppets sing
I hope this Christmas your dreams come true
The puppets are singing especially for you

Cheating Death by demonrobber Cheating Death :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 79 2
Cheating Death
Cheating Death
The witch was getting frail and old
She could feel the chill of the cold
She did not want to die
She started to cry
She resolved to cast a spell
That would make her young and well
She would now live forever
She thought she was oh so clever
She felt wonderful and free
She believed this was her destiny
She met princes and princesses
She indulged in many excesses
But as time past by
Her old friends started to die
She felt miserable inside
The sadness would not subside
Now she appreciates the value of friends
Her love and adoration for them never ends
The future is hard to foretell
She resolved to reverse the spell
Sometimes the things we want most
Are as elusive as a cheerful ghost
Youth is not always a cherished gift
The witch felt her gloom start to lift
She accepted death was close at hand
She would soon depart her beloved land
Shortly she would pass into another domain
Only her lifeless body would remain
Now she is with all her old friends
And that is where this story e

The Witch And The Grim Reaper by demonrobber The Witch And The Grim Reaper :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 52 9
The Witch And The Grim Reaper
The Witch And The Grim Reaper
(A story of redemption)
The witch was angry so she cast a spell
She sent her lover to eternal Hell
She discovered he had been cheating
Whilst she had been trick and treating
She was in a state of blind fury
She was found guilty of murder by a jury
Now the Grim Reaper is on her case
The witch finally succumbs to the chase
She submits and reconciles herself to Hell
Will she cope? Who can tell?
So be careful when you fall in love
Be as true as a pure white dove
The Grim Reaper drags her by the hair
She screams and screams but he does not care
He will take her to a place full of corruption and decay
In a final act of desperation she starts to pray
God hears her call and resolves to save the day
He strikes the Grim Reaper who is blown away
The witch is granted a new lease of life
And in time she becomes a happy and contented wife

Edgar Allan Poe by demonrobber Edgar Allan Poe :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 57 7
Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe had a gift for prose
Where his ideas came from nobody knows
He created stories of horror and crime
They were quite disturbing most of the time
They could inspire a troubled dream
That would wake you up with a terrifying scream
The House of Usher was about a family doomed by a curse
Frightened they may be buried alive in a hearse
Death and plague were close at hand
He loved to unsettle his readers you understand
The Pit and The Pendulum and The Black Cat
He created nightmares in the study where he sat
Death and drinking were part of his life
He was devastated by the death of his young wife
His life was tragic and oh so sad
The greatest writer we ever had

Frankenstein by demonrobber Frankenstein :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 45 1
Frankenstein and his monster will make you scream
They are part of a disturbing dream
Victor had a passion for science
He had a streak of defiance
He wanted to cheat death
Bring back life after the final breath
But the dream turned into a nightmare
The monster needed love and care
But Victor rejected his creation
Which resulted in his devastation
The creature killed a loved one
Soon after he was gone
He travelled to the north pole
The perfect place for a lost soul
Victor followed the cause of his downfall
One final embrace would end it all
They joined together in the freezing snow
They headed for a place where nobody would go
Two doomed souls destined to die abroad
This is the punishment when you defy Our Lord

Haunted House - Halloween by demonrobber Haunted House - Halloween :icondemonrobber:demonrobber 11 3
Haunted House - Halloween
Haunted House
The Haunted House is so scary
You need to be alert and wary
The spirits protect their domain
They will drive you insane
Perhaps you will always be trapped here
Can you sense your growing fear?
There are dead bodies under the floor
You are frozen to the core
The ghosts are starting to whine
Your health is on the decline
You should not be here
The warning was clear
Now you will live here forever
You thought you were brave and clever
Now the tears start to fall
Can you hear the ghosts call?
This is your spirit greeting
This is your initial meeting
There is an axe in your dead
You are one of the dead
Join the deceased and pass it on
Another innocent soul has gone
All of those here met an untimely end
This Haunted House is not pretend

Here are links to Gothic music I have listened to recently on Bandcamp.

Firstly, Queen Of Thorns by Adrian Von Ziegler:…

Secondly, Tales Of The Lost Kingdom by Brunuhville…

I think both albums contain beautiful music. I hope you like them too.

Hey thanks for all the favs
demonrobber Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2017
No problem. I like your poetry. :)
VicMartinezJr Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
I appreciate that, my friend.

And if I may speak honestly, as a poet and author, myself, your poetry could use a little work.

Please note, I mean no ill-intent with my words. I just wanna share my opinion with you. I hope you don't think less of me 'cause of that. Think of it as constructive criticism, you know?
demonrobber Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2017
I appreciate constructive criticism. I believe we can always improve. Thank you.
VicMartinezJr Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
My pleasure.

The only thing I can say, honestly, is that your poetry should sound like it's not about you.

You know? Like writing about you, but NOT about you. If that makes any sense. Again, I mean no ill-intent. And I hope this doesn't upset you.
