There are several inspirational and talented writers in this world.
Some have the patience and skills to write a novel. For others, they
like a shortcut. To write a poem with beautiful verse and few words is
great for those with little patience and know how to turn images into
beautiful verse. Below are instructions for finding your inner Gothic poet ... ^^
Do you live in a world of darkness? Always finding yourself standing in
the middle of a crowded room screaming, but no one hears you? Does your
pain seem endless? Gothic poetry will work for you...
- Start with a topic. This expansive genre encompasses a
huge range of topics. A Gothic poem can be about anything. It's just a
dark twist. Stereotypically, gothic poetry is usually about only pain,
death and tragic love. This isn't always true. So don't let yourself be
fooled by stereotypes.
- Think of a title. The title is one of the most
important parts of gothic poetry. It helps the reader gather the
emotion of the poem before they read it, and to understand the poem
while reading it. A good title will catch the person's eye. Just make
sure you can keep their attention afterwards. It's a good idea to keep
the title short, either words or syllables.
- With the hard part out of the way, outline the poem.
Anything goes in this step, as you'll soon revise it. A short example:
"my twisted soul can no longer fly/darkness rips at my blinding eyes"
- Capitalization isn't a big part of gothic poetry. Some poems
actually come across stronger when words aren't capitalized except for
the names of people, gods and goddesses.
- Punctuation is important. Another stereotype is that
punctuation is absent from gothic poetry. But that's not true. Any
poem, no matter the genre, would do well with punctuation.
- Because gothic poetry is dark and mysterious, it means there
can't be a hint of hope and happiness and the like. Be afraid to make
references to such. Work with this fear. This is another stereotype
that many tend to believe. Because you write gothic poetry means you
don't have some kind of happy moments, or else you barely feel them. In
the most of cases gothic poets see happiness as a forever lost thing
from their past or as a lifetime unachieved ideal.
- Most people like rhyme. If you wish to rhyme then great! Don't TRY
to make your poem rhyme though. The rhyming should always come by
itself. Trying to rhyme is forcing it to rhyme, and the poem won't flow
and it'll be... well not a good poem. If you want it to rhyme but have
to force rhymes, then do so, but revise revise revise!
- Modern gothic poetry tends to be free verse. Do what you
wish with the design of the poem. But make sure it's comfortable to you
and you can work with it.
- Don't take yourself seriously, no matter how serious you want
to be. If you write poetry that includes anything similar to
"incarnadine," "blood," "torture," or any "gothic" words, you will be
laughed at. Gothic is a style of architecture and a Germanic race of
people who conquered most of the Roman Empire.
- Gothic poetry is not always dark, no matter what they say!
- Reference Persephone (who was kidnapped by Hades and forced to
live the winter of every year in the underworld), Orpheus (a poet who
tried to rescue his wife from Hades), eEurydice (the wife of Orpheus),
Tantalus (doomed to forever sit in pool of water with grapes hanging
overhead but not be able to touch them), the Cimmerii (people who lived
in eternal darkness), or other ancient Greek/Roman tragic stories are
good for Epic Poetry.
- The Dictionary and Thesaurus are your best friends.
- Blood and Black aren't strong words because of their overuse
in today's society; if you want something stronger, then refer to the
thesaurus. Adding darkly, disturbed, literate, and twisted synonyms
such as these for black: ebon, ebony, onyx, sable, dark, or pitch-dark.
For blood you could use words such as vitae and gore; for red crismon, russet, carmine, bloodshot, cherry,blush, brick, cardinal, and scarlet.
- Other synonyms, if you are writing something about death, you may use:
- Massacre-- blood bath, bloodshed, blood letting, butchery, carnage, pogrom (always a jerker), or slaughter.
- Similar to this is bloody-minded: murderous, bloodthirsty,
bloody, cutthroat, homicidal, sanguinary, sanguineous, and
- If you choose to add something from a foreign language,
especially Latin, make sure you know what it means and that you'll
- Never throw out any of your poems. They're your keepsake. Your soul. Your future.
- Numbers are stronger if written out.
- Use intricate and dark words like: morbid, meloncholy,
phantasmagoric, macabre, torment, eternal, decrepit, futile,
deliberate, and delapidated. Try flipping through a dictionary and
looking at random words, you'll most likely find some you like.If you
don't know some of the words above,look them up. They are used alot as
descriptions of society in gothic literature ...^^
