Original Dark Poetry the paperback edition is available now to purchase on Amazon here!
The Original Dark Poetry pieces featured in this collection are the culmination of several years work through many disturbed states of mind.
As such, they reflect many of the darkest attributes associated with the human condition including sex, hate, fear, religion, death, violence, emotional suffering, alienation and depression amongst many others.
A man can never truly escape his inner demons, yet still, we stumble through our short existence attempting that very thing, denying our darkest fears and desires.
Take a look inside the hidden corners of a macabre mind where one man’s meat, is another man’s poison! Some of the Original Dark Poetry pieces featured in this collection portray bloody and graphic acts of violence and mutilation that may shock some readers. While violence is not unknown to him, the author in no way endorses any behaviour of the sort that may cause harm to oneself or others.

Greetings to all!
Craig Detheridge, the creative force behind Original Dark Poetry, is a tortured writer, poet and bassist resident in central England with an interest in anything macabre, supernatural or horror related. This includes artwork, books, poetry and movies. There’s nothing like a good horror movie but unfortunately, good horror movies are few and far between these days.
He has been writing original poetry and rhyme since around the year 2000. It began as a way to release inner angst and frustrations but was not generally macabre or dark in nature. These pieces soon morphed into the Original Dark Poetry creations he still writes until this day. He often takes inspiration from the likes of Edgar Allan Poe’s famous dark poetry and stories, H.P. Lovecraft’s cosmic horror creations, Clive Barker’s horror fiction and Nick Cave, rock music’s Prince Of Darkness, to name but a few.
Writing Original Dark Poetry comes fairly easily and many of his written pieces are inspired by or feature dark themes or subject matter such as death, murder, mutilation, madness, the supernatural and various other macabre subjects. He is also interested in science fiction and fantasy although has written very little that falls into either of these two genres.
Most of Craig’s creations are in the form of poetry or rhyme but he does occasionally write lyrics or very short stories. He has many more ideas than he can actually finish in the short term and completing a short horror story is something to aspire to.
