    Weekly Poetry Contest (128) Voting - Halloween

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Nov 9, 2010.

    Poetry Contest

    Voting



    Democracy in action!

    This week's theme was: Halloween

    Voting will end on Friday 12th 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.

    Only For Tonight
    By Egil1Eye

    Like the Dutchman on an expanse of windless sea
    The moon glowed with a ghostly flow, watching.
    Leaves crunching under excited feet,
    Laughter, lyrically floating from costumes, far below.

    Demons and angels, cats and dogs,
    Friend and foe, running door to door.
    Fantasy and fiction come to life tonight
    Only for tonight.

    Time has stood still, for fear can not hold,
    Time flows by too quickly on this night's fleeting joy.
    Ghosts and gobblins cavort, where the living avoid,
    For this is the night past and present are as one.

    There are no strangers this night,
    Only those who count the candy,
    Only those who play the tricks,
    All Hallow's Eve,
    Only for tonight.

    The Conception
    By violetinsideme


    All Hallows Eve
    Looms in the dark.
    Disguising our face
    Darkening our heart.
    The night drawing near
    Anticipation on the rise.
    Reliving childish fears
    Halloween and the cries
    Of the fallen
    Out for the haunt.
    The night is calling
    Dead faces gaunt.
    Where are they feeding
    On this night, evil breeding?

    The spirits of night
    By Fancy


    We haunt you in dark dreary places
    Where nothing can hide from our sight
    We scare you with our horrid faces
    We are the spirits of night

    You think you can hide in the shadows
    We want you to think that you might
    But darkness is where we would hide
    We are the spirits of night

    Deadly chants we would sing
    Making you all cringe in fright
    Fear is what we would bring
    We are the spirits of night

    Tonights for Fright
    By tarnished


    Through the silicone smoke and neon light,
    the loves for the day, tonights for fright.

    Outlined in black, a sillhoute swirl
    dirty blonde, halloween dream girl.

    I reach to touch, but find only air
    wherever you are, I wish I was there.

    HORRORS OF HALLOWEEN
    By Rajikai


    As their shadows creep, my eyes widen.
    The door weeps, their hands reach.
    Hums of light pierce the door.
    I don’t think I can take anymore.

    My feet trembles, my heart paces
    Screeches whines, as I inch forward
    The floor creaks , and my ears seizes
    My fingers cry, and I grab the knob

    I open the door, and my mind screams
    Trick or treat, is what I see
    Happy Halloween is all I need.
