I asked my blogger BFF Tiger from All-Consuming Books to write one of her popular sonnets for zombie week and she totally outdid herself with this one!
“Zombie Love is Necromantic” by Tiger Holland
A zombie boy has everything that you
could ever need. You know he won’t run out
to spend time with the guys because he’s too
wrapped up in chasing you after your shouts
caught his attention. Zombie boys are not
so focused on externals—yes, they care
about what’s deep inside, and if you’ve got
a need to spill your guts, they’re glad to share.
A zombie boy is not the type to rush
when he’s pursuing someone that he needs.
A zombie doesn’t worry if you gush
and fall to pieces near him. His love feeds
on such displays. A zombie’s love is long! Desire remains—
A zombie boy will steal your heart and still look for your brains.
Karen here! How awesome was that?? THANK YOU Tiger!
BONUS! Here's a video for "Eat you Up" by BOA
This K-Pop song inspired Tiger's sonnet after realizing that the singer sounds like a zombie, talking about eating a boy alive and how she might tear him to bits if he steps closer.
