    Weekly Poetry Contest (130) Voting - Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Nov 22, 2010.

    Voting



    Democracy in action!

    This week's theme was: Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall

    Voting will end on Thursday 25th 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.

    Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
    By jo spumoni

    To the Mirror on the wall:
    I wrote to say
    I loved you
    But alas!
    When I showed you
    "uoy evol I"
    Was reflected in the glass!

    My speaking Illusion
    By Sonnet

    In my mixed emotions
    My eyesight trembled
    But the looking glass, so strong, so still
    Remained in its place.
    It laughed the movement in my face
    It wore marks made and then erased.
    By my savage hand and silly haste.
    Indeed I hold a lack of taste.
    When I stand before a false perfection
    A false perfection, that I cannot embrace.

    Standing in front of this cheap glass I couldn't feel a thing but shame
    The way it laughed at me and caused me so much pain
    Run away as quick as I might the glass would laugh even harder in spite
    My heart was aching as my spirit was breaking
    But the glass continued its mocking
    Once high spirits steadily dropping
    The glass, the glass, full of nothing but sass
    Turning my head to see something new
    I looked one last time and knew there was something to do
    Balled up my fists and swung
    Looking at the shattered glass I felt as though I finally won
