Details

Create a poem with Gothic tone. Not Goth, and not necessarily horror for the sake of horror. Think Ann Radcliffe, Matthew Lewis, Mary Shelly, Charlotte and Emily Bronte, Edger Allen Poe, Joseph Sheridan Le Fenu, Bram Stoker, writers that produced romantic works that contained the prenatural elements of fear, terror, and horror. These works of the "sublime" are the foundations of the modern horror genres.
I am NOT looking for slasher or suicidal. Think a little more subtle
(my thanks to some of the wording here to a previous post)
