Slender Man Comes
You hear the whispers of his name
Like something secret and profane
The stories of him told to young
Of those unfortunate to have met him
When he comes

He comes out from amongst the trees
Bringing horror to those that see
A man, yet strange and grotesquely tall
A kind of man who shouldn't exist at all
Arms and legs long and limber
To leave your body, high in the timber
A face devoid of any features
Simple yet horrifying is this creature

No one knows from where came
Or where he will appear again
His stride is quick so you can run
But chances are your life is done
His coming is heralded by a fog
Children laughing, barking dogs
He comes to only those whom believe
So for your sake, you best not give heed

Some say he's existed, since time began
Others say, he's the ghost of a murderous man
Some say he came from the stars
Others from a dimension that is not ours
No one knows and no one cares
All they know is that he's there
His name is simple and so plain
But, his presence will drive you insane
Oh, how I wish he'd go away
But I think, he's here to stay
So when you see him, pray you can
Get away from the Slender Man
Back last year in either September or October, I discovered the video series "Marble Hornets" on Youtube. I was immediately enthralled by it and became intrigued by the creature in the series, the Slender Man. I later found out that Slender Man was spawned from the forums of Something Awful and researched him to death. He's one of the most perfect and awesome urban legends ever invented. Now a couple things in the poem I made up to keep a steady flow of words, but most of the stuff is in fact related to the SM in some way. Look him up if you're interested. But be warned, there be some freaky shit about him out there.

he's no longer a simple urban legend. he is now a full member of the creepypasta family and is even considered to be their leader. wich proves that he is one of the most famous horror stories in the ENTIRE WORLD! and you are one of the many people to have enhanced his legend. i say goddamn good work!

Yes, in fact he found out Slender Man just wanted a friend. They play poker every Thursday night with The Rake and Jeff the Killer.

Slender Man is what your worst nightmares are made of. He is the darkness under your bed, the slight movement you catch out of the corner of your eye when you think you're alone. He is the tapping on your window at night and the noise you weren't entirely sure you heard. He is insanity. He is darkness. He is the last thing you see before you die. Does that answer your question?

I absolutely love this poem. It's so....Edgar Alan Poe. (: The definately should be some kind of SM fan book and this should be the introduction or something lol. It also inspired me to write a SM poem of my own so thanks for the inspiration. (:
