    Weekly Poetry Contest (129) Voting - Acrostics

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

    Poetry Contest

    Voting



    Democracy in action!

    This week's theme was: Acrostics

    Voting will end on Friday 19th 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.

    Never Forget
    By tarnished


    New soldiers, alligned in their rows
    everything pristine, all ready for war.
    Very few know what lies ahead,
    even though their future may be filled with dread.

    Running through the explosions, he fell so quickly
    forgetting his past, his present, his head hit so hard-
    on the ground now, he silently lay- cold and broken,
    red seeping into the earth as he headed for the sky
    God takes and god gives, and remember him in battle.
    Everythings for something, so never forget
    that men gave their lives for you, and they never regret.

    ARCHAEOLOGY
    By jo spumoni


    Answers are complex. They
    Rest underground.
    Carefully, we sift
    Hoping for pyramids
    And finding rocks,
    Earth, and adobe fragments
    Of our foundations,
    Lost beneath the layers
    Of a history
    Gleaming obsidian and tiny bones
    Yearn to tell

    Oh What A Familiar Feeling
    By Smoct


    Oh a sweet new wind blows,
    but not one person sees.
    Directions change from east to west
    stirring a new wave and calming the sea.

    What was once bitter
    is now turning into something sweet.
    Insolence modulates overnight
    upon the feeling of being complete.

    A new smell arises
    from the midst of dead leaves.
    A smell so intense, so delicious,
    so kind, and entirely too naive.

    Familiar faces cast unseen glances,
    glaring at the dawn of the evening.
    Our eyes are meeting right on schedule.
    Lungs cope to keep breathing.

    Feeling tips of fingers
    bending the perfect angles within.
    Freckles align, with bones intertwined,
    eyes collide, and life begins.

    We are Merely Players
    By Rajikai


    Oh how the rueful sounds scorch in the air as treachery seeps into play
    The Assassins who roam the earth searching for their every prey
    Tears that are torn between lovers as they play against one another
    The poison of deceit and greed one obtains from every other

    Oh the sorrow is ever so practical
    This seed of destruction which begins every cycle

    I gawk my eyes through this glass wall
    While I begin to watch this world fall
    Unable to play
    Manipulated by a witch
    This fray
    And an apple which does not enrich
    Will cause us fall into an eternal slumber
    Where these games will forever plunder

    I observe as they play games
    I monitor all the destruction that is caused
    But I never saw any end with a round of applause

    Shadows
    By lavendershy


    Slipping in smoothness
    Hobbling hoards,
    Antsy antagonist
    Dripping through doors;
    Openings onto a
    World you might wish;
    Shadowing, trembling,
    tumble and swish.
