    Poetry Contest Voting 35

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Feb 20, 2008.

    The
    Thirty Fifth
    Poetry Contest
    Voting



    The contest is closed, and voting shall now commence!

    This week's theme was (courtesy of me): The Colour Of Your Heart

    Quite a few entries this week, you lot did me proud

    Voting will end on 23th February 2008. Voting for yourself is entirely at your own disgression. I'm frankly sick of discussion on the matter, so any in here will be deleted. If you want to vote for yourself, go for it, but I personally wouldn't do that unless I genuinely believed mine was the best.

    The winning poem will be stickied for a week in the poetry contest.


    Oh, and if I catch anyone cheating, it'll be castration (or whatever I deem the female equivilent to be). You have been warned *evil laughs, whilst sharpening a carving knife...*

    Seriously folks, don't do it. There is no prize to be won here but bragging rights, making cheating an exercise in pointlessness.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting :p

    youngwriter_11311311 ~ Painted Heart

    Colors painted upon the heart
    Which one will it be?

    Envious green
    or Passionate purple?
    Bleeding red,
    Flowing like the sea?

    Sad with despaired blue?
    Happy with a yellowed hue?
    Pure white as the clouds of a summer day?
    Or will your heart be painted with shades from
    black to grey?

    Maybe as orange as the sun?
    Would that be the one?
    Or would you go crazy with stripes or dots?
    Zig zags?
    Maybe so or maybe not?

    If you painted your heart
    what colors would you see?

    vangoghsear ~ Painter of Heart

    character
    defined by
    fine lines inside,
    delicately washed with
    kolinsky sable brush

    imperfection
    coats with
    slashing strokes
    violently carved with
    broad bristle brush

    love ignores,

    looks deeper.

    ______________can’t
    why___can’t____we
    _______________see____beyond____color?
    _______________to_____color______of
    hearts__ignore___color___skin._____the
    _______color____of_____the______heart.
    _______________heart?

    hate obscures,

    draws lines
    hidden in
    insidious means
    paints out truth
    in flat single hues.
    of angry red,
    jealous greens.

    sees only what it wants.

    K~la - Once Again

    Dark clouds form
    and rain falls down.
    Once again, I let it hit me.

    The clock stops ticking
    but time still moves ahead.
    Once again, I let it pass me.

    Casting out into that lake,
    mystified by its beauty.
    Once again, I let it get away.

    The alluring serpent, full of grace
    heads warning of his sting.
    Once again, I let it bite me.

    Walking down a hidden trail,
    our hands barely touching.
    Once again, your true colours show.

    oddiz4u ~ Untitled Poem

    The beating of your heart was so synesthetic,
    While mine was a mechanical gray: prosthetic.
    And as my senses became eidetic,
    It was you who became apathetic.
    Your feelings numbed me like an anesthetic,
    I fought demons to cleanse this epidemic.
    Still you faded from me, your soul now paretic,
    But I refuse to change my mechanical heart's color: poetic.

    anthraxx ~ Colour of my country

    Left, right, left
    Let's march our way to daybreak
    If there's a robbery or theft
    It's my country's economy at stake
    So let's not lose the vibe
    The sudden rise and fall of spirit
    The twisting vibrancy of thought
    We'll put it all together
    To make our country better

    A crescent of hope
    Green of harmony
    Spilled upon my heart
    Is the colour of my country

    The eloquent tremble of bangles
    Echoes in midst of the terror
    Stop the beast before she's strangled!
    The murderer would not bother
    But my heart could not let her die
    May my death come to me today
    Or tomorrow
    Her smile is the ultimate treasure
    My soul's countless pleasure

    The downtrodden masses struggle through the dark
    It's not a crime to give them a hand
    Only, it'll make them happy as a lark
    Let's all together fight this sand
    We're just a flame
    Which blinks like a star
    We're just a passion
    Backed up with compassion

    A crescent of hope
    Green of harmony
    Spilled upon my heart
    Is the colour of my country

    Even if I'm chopped into pieces
    Or even if my flesh is sold in marts
    Even if it mashes my veins
    My country has painted my heart

    Gannon ~ monochrome: mystically me.

    "It matters not what skin you are
    in when thine (he)art is bold black and
    thy thoughts are all clouded in red.

    Thou art anything but right and
    white thou sinister and slimy
    beast of creeping evil", she said.

    I am in reply, but product
    of decisions I make and thus
    believe myself only opaque.

    Amloki ~ The Color in my Heart

    I rub myself with color.

    I soak it in,
    clothes and soul,
    till my hair grows in
    shades of blue
    and I have
    tinted fingertips.

    I drink it up
    in sips and gulps
    till my eyes
    are purple
    and my lips red.

    But the color does not
    reach my heart,
    and steeped in inky black
    it sleeps, in its cavern deep.
