He Thought He Was Alone But...

An Abecedarian Poem

Albert was all alone in his office feeling

Bitter. He was working late. Suddenly, he heard a

Creepy voice call out his name. It scared the

Daylights out of him so he ran towards the

Elevator only to realise it was out of order.

"Fudge!" he swore as he walked back to his office and

Gulped some water when a menacing laugh made the

Hair on the back of his neck stand up. He

Immediately ran out of his office and saw

Jack staring at him. That was impossible because he

Knew he was all alone but there was Jack

Looking as pale as a ghost. "Jack?" he called. Jack

Mumbled something and approached him slowly.

"No, you're not Jack! Stay away from me!" and

Off he ran towards the emergency stairs. Although he

Prayed to escape this nightmare, that didn't

Quite happen. Jack managed to catch him

Right before he reached the

Stairs. Jack inserted his fangs into his neck where it left

Two punctures after Jack drank his blood. Now he

Understood that Jack is actually a

Vampire. He was even more horrified

When Jack cracked his skull which seemed glued together by

Xanthan gum. Jack has been

Yearning for brains. Jack is a hybrid of a vampire and a

Zombie.

    I didn't see that coming! GREAT concept! Poor Albert, but at least it all worked out in the end for Jack! I love stories where I can enjoy rooting for the villain. 😉

  • Abigail Penhallegon10 months ago

    This was fun, I’ve never written an abecedarian poem but now I want to!

  • Donna Fox (HKB)11 months ago

    D, this was a great abecedarian poem! I love gory and unexpected story it told, about a vampire- zombie hybrid! Great stuff! 💖

  • Mackenzie Davisabout a year ago

    Haha, this was fun! Cool to see the story unfold as it did. The speaker has an almost ghost-story-round-a-campfire voice, which I very much enjoyed

  • Deanna Fratus2 years ago

    I loved this and the suspense was great!

  • At the end of the line starting Jack, should there be a 'he' at the end?

  • An interesting poem, if a little ghoulish.
