I've only written a couple of haiku before, so I thought I'd give it another shot. I know, I know, Slenderman is such a cliche subject to write about, but it's an easy subject to start a new style with so don't judge me Anyway, tell me what you think!
The ending really surprised me, actually. Slenderman has been ALL over the place and so I too was a little disappointed -- however it doesnt' change that it's written well. It's funny how such few words can create an emotional reaction! Very spooky. I thought it was about a stalker or somesuch. Good job.
Ahaha!! I was thinking Slenderman all the way through the poem with a growing smile on my face, and when I saw "Slenderman" I laughed out loud. As great as this is, I can't take anything concerning Slenderman seriously anymore because of all the funny things I've mentally done with Slenderman. My friends and I decided he needs a girlfriend. XD
Slender Man is a cliche subject to those that want desperately to do with something that few others do. The people who don't pay attention to the merits something has, but instead try to make their work more interesting by being a novelty. Vampires aren't cliche, but Vampires as brooding high-society socialites, that's a cliche.
I don't think I get around to haiku as much as I could, its an art form that I simply haven't had a lot of contact with. The interesting rules associated with them, however, are definitely noteworthy. I like the spirit of this piece, to be sure.
Thank you for commenting And yes, that's why I decided to try writing a haiku. I don't write very restrictive poetry much, so I decided that, as a would-be professional writer, I should try to get experience in every type possible
I, myself, am not so much of a poetry person. Some of it is just a little vague for me. I'm a man of science, so when I get to writing, I like to enjoy it, writing it, the story, etc.. Like improvising Jazz piano.
Every once in a while, I come across poetry, which sometimes I'll read, and sometimes it's vague, like I said. The times it's not, however, I really enjoy it. As such, I liked this poem/haiku(s).
