    Weekly Poetry Contest (107) Voting - Breaking New Ground

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Mar 16, 2010.

    Some very good entries this week :)

    This week's theme was (courtesy of Me): Breaking New Ground

    Voting will end on Friday 19th March 2010.

    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.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.

    Paths
    By Anastaysia


    Everyone was leaving to go their own ways.
    Regardless of their past, they moved on and continued.
    They would think of it time to time, and smile.
    Thinking of the foolishness, and that they were more now.
    Looking back on the past,
    I think that I was actually happy once.
    But now, everyone’s gone.
    I’m all alone and thinking of the way they left.
    No goodbyes or just…
    Why can’t I forget everything and move on like everyone else?
    I guess I don’t want to forget the pain, the sorrow, and the happiness that I felt.
    Only when we were together again, the five of us,
    Would I truly be able to leave everything else behind me.
    I think that the emotions that I felt with them,
    It confused me, and I could never figure out why I felt like that.
    I don’t think I ever will.
    So for now, I stay standing,
    Waiting for the moment when we meet again.

    Hate's Conquest
    DvnMrtn


    They came for me in the night,
    and filled me with their loathing,
    Their hate.

    A primal urge I had to fight,
    as they tortured me through the night,
    that pierced my fleshy clothing,
    the whipping, grinding, and mashing that was,
    Their hate.

    Only man, I slowly gave,
    a piece of me they whipped and slaved,
    through the fiery pain that was,
    Their hate.

    By dawn it had consumed me round,
    closed my eyes and broke new ground,
    as a part of me flew away forevermore,
    with the ravens of nevermore,
    they filled me with,
    My Hate.

    The Pioneer-Indebted Alphabet
    By Gannon


    In a sea of self-created caravan,
    from within creeping walls of will-be jungles
    it begins amid snakes and pyramid schemes.
    Accursed New World - see you on the other side.

    In otherwise empty hardwood cases,
    dandruff combs and emotional forget-me-nots
    fill further vessels with effervescent dreams.
    Desire, like dry desert, we’ll conquer thee!

    In genius quest to win fame and maiden,
    Verne never jaded Iceland, nor HG Wells his worlds
    and their wars - at this heart a Joseph Conrad.
    Oh, for an off-ramp before event horizon.

    In spite of eminent direction and pride,
    now deep within their element we recall
    our pioneers: the good, ugly and bad.
    Incapable, incontinent and interred.

    Love Revised
    By MissingInAction


    The flames of envy,
    lap incessantly.
    Like molten waves of pain -

    Through crimson eyes.
    The love that binds,
    is tested by the rain.

    Fear and anger watch.
    They jealously approach,
    as back to back we stand:
    The Phoenix of this flame.

    Ice-covered sea
    By igalic


    The nectar
    That was running through my veins
    Giving me life
    Turned to poison
    Finds no way out

    Decaying
    Dying on the inside
    I don’t give up
    Stomping the ground I stand on
    No other side to break through

    The ice-covered sea
    Now remains my only hope
