    Poetry Contest Voting - A Loose Thread

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Jul 13, 2009.

    The
    88th
    Poetry Contest
    VOTING!



    The contest is closed, and voting shall now commence!

    This week's theme (courtesy of Myself) is: A Loose Thread

    Voting will end on 16th July, 2009. Voting for yourself is entirely at your own discretion. 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, their entry will be removed from the contest and you will be unable to enter a poem into the contest for a month. Sorry to be such an ogre about this, I don't want to be, but rules are rules and are in place for valid reasons. If you can not follow the rules, you face the consequences.

    There is no prize to be won here, you can not claim you are an award winning poet, so as you can see, cheating really is pointless here!

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.

    Strings of Regret - Palmer

    A waft of air hath gently kissed
    The flaring sunrise' fervent bliss
    A damsel refined, whence came she?
    Oh deity Colleen, thou bringest mine glee!

    The cyan waters all beckon her name
    A pristine maiden that for naught can we blame
    Betwixt us twain a thread our love weaves
    Ne'er shalt we part until our life grieves!

    Two strings of destiny art firmly entwined
    Predestined knots that were fated to bind
    In a world so vast, these strangers collided
    Now only through death, shalt they be divided

    Amidst beds of myrtle, we frolic together
    To envision a dream of a joyous forever
    All mine time with her I shalt spend
    Alas, all beginnings hath their ends

    At midnight's lament mine leman is gone
    I mourn of mine bride 'til darkness is dawn
    With blood on a palm, and Colleen on the other
    Mine dainty heart is crippled asunder

    At sullen anguish I drown in disdain
    In somber deluge I'm consumed in pain
    Am I abandoned, or shalt I be saved
    Why is this world so dim and depraved?

    I lie on ashen shores to wait
    And ponder of mine daunting hate
    Such lavish disputes hath fathomed astray
    Why doth be there love, why be there dismay?

    The clouds hover at sunset's blaze
    Horizon spans in sunken gaze
    Mine feet art engulfed in silt and sand
    I hath nothing left but a thread in hand

    Regret - LordKyleOfEarth

    A loose thread,
    so careless and free
    She lacks moral fiber,
    she isn't me.

    She spent today on my sweater,
    last night on my sheets.
    She has no real standards,
    stays with whomever she meets.

    I'm not that thread,
    I'm never so free.
    Her life is exciting,
    That thread isn't me.

    Gone - sunkistroses401

    The stars in the sky at night,
    remind me of my dreadful plight.
    You were here and now are not,
    resting in your eternal plot.
    The day you left me my world fell apart,
    always will you be inside my heart.

    Looking back at all I have left of you,
    a piece of thread from your old shoe,
    a poem you wrote me in the ninth grade,
    the knife you had with the rigid blade,
    and the memories we made; the good and the bad,
    I wonder if where you are is as dark and sad.

    Staring out my window, could have sworn I saw you,
    My mind is playing tricks on me, it just can't be true.
    Dreaming of what might have been; I feel so empty,
    I know you would tell me to move on and stop driving myself batty.
    Maybe you are right and I should just look ahead,
    but for now I'll just hang on to this old thread.

    A Way Out? - Styx

    I kept pulling.
    It didn’t fix it.
    It was destroyed before I realised.

    Sitting
    On the floor of my living room
    Surrounded by presents
    All for me
    To do what I wanted with

    Unwrapping
    Stripping off all of the
    Decorated paper
    Curious

    Revealing
    Showing everyone the
    Green sweater
    Disgusted

    Pretending
    Showing everyone the
    Smiling mask
    Civil

    Alone in my room
    I stare at it

    Alone in my room
    I wonder why

    Solitary thoughts get no answer.

    Unravelling my thoughts
    Picking them apart
    One by one
    Getting nowhere
    Until

    I see it.
    A loose thread,
    The one with know obvious answer
    The loose thread

    I grasp it in my childish hand
    And pull.

    I kept pulling
    It didn’t fix it.
    It was destroyed before I realised.

    The Cotton Candy Cloud - J_F

    looking up at the lollipop sun
    a lonely thread spools from a cotton candy cloud
    it tickles my nose and I'm swollen with laughter

    yet
    I want to punch and scream in the phantom air

    in spite of me i play with it like a little kitty cat
    pawing and tugging it
    and i can do it all day

    but the clouds bolster into gray like razors
    and the thread disappears

    now
    I punch and scream in the phantom air

    and I walk along
    hands now toiling with lint
    nothing ever happened
