Horror poems should invade the ordinariness of the day and allow the reader to sense the chill of the uncanny. They should form dream images that haunt during sleep. This broad collection of horror poetry ranges in subject matter from death to ghosts, from dark corners of the human psyche and human behavior to Lovecraftian monsters. They will haunt and they will cling to the mind like an ancient beast's tentacles. Be careful looking over your shoulder if you feel fingers touch it--you may find that the fingers are fleshless but the claws sharp.
