The Art of Darkness

The Goth-o-Matic Poetry Generator

January 30th, 2008 by Cobwebs

This amusing little time-waster allows you to select various wording options to generate your own “original” gothic poetry. I love the author’s tongue-in-cheek treatment of the horrible, soul-crushing despair of it all.

Night Ritual

Around, all around, the shadows gather.
My dread grows as the dagger of your words falls against my naked soul.
It crushes me, and darkly my
blood drips
to the wicked earth that is my prison.
In a frenzy I call your name
while oblivion laughs cruelly.
Now alone, my cascade of tears falls upon darkened eyes.

This is my doom

Also check out the Brunching Shuttlecocks’ Goth Quote Generator. Somewhat to my horror, I’ve run across snippets from this widget on other sites, being presented as “real” quotes.

    That’s actually a pretty good poem too.

    I love it. It’s Mad Libs for the clinically depressed.
