You must have been Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Bram Stroker, or even Mary Shelley. I would have said Stephen King, but he still is alive. :P What are you doing on here? You should be writing and racking in millions. (Or maybe you are, hm).
Well, thank you for entertaining us. :) You be good and keep writing horror :P

    I'll never tell, Rasmine.
    Maybe I'm Mr. King himself, just tryin' to see what the general public thinks about my stuff before I publish.
    Or Dean Koontz, perhaps, or maybe even Robin Cook. LOL...
    I have several stories and poems published, and a couple of books.
    I just don't believe in tooting my own horn.
    Plus, I have friends here--like you. :)

    Cool! Just don't waste your talent. :)

    You make sure to do the same.

Well, well. This is very good. I love how you incorporate the sound effects and of course, the graphics. It makes it even more Ghoulish. Job well done.

    Thanks for having a go at this, Heidi. I know the promotion is no longer there, and the poem is rather lengthy. That being said, I doubly appreciate you taking time away from your own work to read it.
    Much obliged!

    Thank you inspired me. I just entered the Tombstone contest. My entry is Here Lies Spot. What the heck.

reply by the author on 11-Dec-2015
    Hahaha...what the heck is right, Heidi.
    Hey, you know what they say..."Nothing ventured, nothing gained."

    Good luck!

Very creepy. I loved the video that accompanied it. Good style. I enjoyed the Poe vibe. Great job as usual. I really missed your work.

Sensational and so well done on the poem of the month award! You clever frightster! I've written a couple of darker pieces and ravenblack told me how to add chapters to Shifting Shadows if I'm able to write something decent. This is getting bookcased! Best wishes, Pete :)

    Thanks very much for your complimentary comments and thoughtful review, Pete. This particular piece has not been selected for POM honors (and most likely won't be), but my poem Devoid was.
    I appreciate you stopping by, leaving a six star rating behind, and your interests in posting a poem in Shifting Shadows. I'm sure anything you come up with will be extraordinary.
    Thanks again, Pete. I deeply appreciate it.
    With gratitude

Outstanding poetry. Your poetic imagery and animated graphics embellish a horror tale that plays hell with Halloween. The 8-6 iambic meter was a perfect foil for the furtive flow. You are always good for raising the heart rate.

I enjoyed your story poem. Great animations to further the story. Good use of ending rhymes. I enjoyed the internal rhymes, too. Your word choice is so precise that the reader is focused so as not to lose any meaning. Your pictures that are interspersed are done so at just the right point in the poem. Good job and thanks for sharing.

    First off, I apologize for the lengthy delay in responding to your wonderful review, Jan.
    Second, and most importantly of all, I appreciate you taking the time to read and review this and offer your feedback.
    Last, but certainly not least, thanks for the generous six star rating and complimentary review. It is reviews like yours which inspire me to keep at it, and try to do even better the next time around.

    With gratitude and respect

Your poem generates all the feelings it should. However, in the title Helloween should really be Halloween or did you intend it to be that way?


 Comment Written 04-Nov-2015



reply by the author on 04-Nov-2015
    Yes, "Helloween" was intentional, Alan, merely a simple play on words, if you will. I say it again in my brief author's notes.
    Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.
    Always with respect
    ~Dean

G'day Dean. I've been of the internet planet for about 3 months but I'm glad to be back now and be frightened shitless by your work mate. That is an incredible piece of poetry and a fantastic presentation as well. I was thinking Poe as I shook the shivers from my body. Brilliant work Sir. Cheers Fez

Happy Halloween, Dean. You are the master writer on these horror tails and I'm sure you derive much pleasure and delight from this genre. This one is splendidly presented and delightfully illustrated with flickering flames, and eerie crackling fire... most enjoyable, Giddy
