    Tales of Anima and zebra - Joint Weekly Poetry Contest (219) Winners

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Jan 6, 2013.

    Same old song and dance
    By Tales of Anima


    The end of the world,
    A familiar song
    Water, earth, ice, and fire,
    The composer's instruments

    Innocent eyes look around,
    How?
    A cataclysm looks back
    Why?

    Tired feet and weary bones;
    This number is old to me
    Virgin ears and youthful souls!
    This routine is nothing new

    The end of the world,
    A familiar song
    Life, death, peace, and war,
    It's nothing new



    My Apocalypse
    By zebra


    The end of my world cannot be predicted
    by Mayans or Evangelics or Crazies.
    My world ends
    when your moon-face no longer lights up my sky
    with freckle-stars.
    The end of my world cannot be exacted
    by me, at least.
    My world will end
    when your tree-limbs no longer entangle my body,
    when your wind-whisper no longer tickles my ears,
    when your earthen-heart no longer quakes upon my breast.
