    Only a couple of hours late. I'm getting better!

    This week's theme was: Sonnets

    Voting will end on Thursday 4th November 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.

    Cindy, oh Cindy
    By jo spumoni


    Cindy, oh Cindy, thine face smelleth sweet
    For the roses of summer do bloom on thine cheek
    And fragrant and warm art thine tiny feet
    And when meeteth our eyes, my heart feeleth weak.

    Within thine smile doth resteth the sun
    And within thine eyes, the stars,
    And when meeteth our lips, we two become one
    Though still we are one from afar

    Dear Cindy! I fear I doth fail
    To sayeth all that I pine
    The poor words lament, and old Language ails
    To describe thine own hand on mine

    I didst try to be eloquent in olden words, but I wonder if it's true:
    Would you love me better had I just said, "I love you"?

    Clarity Within
    By fighter25


    The rain is falling down onto the ground
    How can the clouds beneath the sun go grey?
    They float above the earth with out a sound
    Like space cadets with nothing left to say.

    Our tears will fade into this falling rain
    And summer signs a lease with me again
    Your words immerse like water in disdain
    Will drown the sinking ship that we are in

    The storm that echoes through the dreamer’s mind
    Will shatter just like sea glass on the shore
    A compass with directions not to find
    Alone with weathered brains I am once more

    But then again I might just stay awake
    And count the time between the thunder’s break.

    She
    By Cogito


    She walks among the shadows, cloaked in flame
    As hard as steel, invisible as air
    All demons flee in terror at her name
    Or wither into smoke before her glare

    Among the stars she strides across the sky
    Accepts no limits as she rules the night
    Millennia like mayflies pass her by
    And Time himself surrenders to her light

    She holds the universe within her hand
    Or slips between two subatomic waves
    One word of love from her upon the land
    Will raise the dead and lost up from their graves

    But if my love’s existence you refuse
    I shrug. For only I can see my Muse.
