I was not always like this
This body isn't mine.
I changed when I was sent there-
My payment of his fine.

My arms, there's far too many.
My face has disappeared.
I've come to the conclusion
I'm something to be feared.

My woods are dark and lonely.
People come here sometimes.
They walk along the dark roads
Just taking their sweet time.

Often they find strange pictures
Of terrifying things
I attempt to help them but
I cannot stand their screams.

The static noise just follows,
They hear it, look, and run.
I guess my debt's been paid,
Because now I have no one.
This was one of the questions for the Halloween thing... What would Slender Man's poem be? I think this is an alright idea of one.

I know next to nothing of Slender Man, so what do you mean by 'My payment of his fine?' Its the only part of the poem I don't understand :)

Other than that, the poem is creepy, and sad.

I know I can't judge whether or not someone has been to Hell, but since Slender Man is seen as this "monster" or "demon" I made it to where he did go to Hell. The payment of his fine would be like his punishment. The punishment he received for whatever it was that he did on Earth (if he was on Earth) that was so bad. Like, his punishment was what the devil did to him, had him become.

great poem. i've never really known much about the Slender Man, just that sometimes people compare him to Alucard from Hellsing. 

interesting.
