    Weekly Poetry Contest (160) Voting - The Idealistic Existence

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Aug 15, 2011.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Sixty
    Voting




    Fewer entries this week, so I'm expecting to see more votes!

    And this week's theme was (courtesy of Jonathan22): The Idealistic Existence

    Voting will end on Thursday 18th August 2011.

    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.

    The Others
    By Kaidince


    Alive in a world where others only exist
    when I need them to; floating along alone,
    in felicity and completely content.

    Eyes closed, in absolute control,
    and emotionless; Just the way I like it.
    Silent; but the music in my mind
    knows exactly what I want to hear.

    This is the grin of someone
    who answers to no one but himself.
    This is the stride of a man
    who lives without consequence.

    I am a head-bobbing happiness machine.
    A smiling, dancing, singing
    example of life perfected.
    Using only those who stand to benefit me;
    All others may as well be unseen or dead.

    I care not for anything
    but personal paradise.
    My mind---a mirage;
    but existing inside is a brilliant
    oasis of self-satisfaction.

    Happiness
    By ZombieHappyMeal


    Holy Horse of the Devil
    Trying to get to neon Heaven
    Laughing out loud wistful gallop
    Berating the artificial ceiling

    Can't stop the upwards decent
    You know that the fall is coming
    Like a helicopter seed
    Twisting into vacancy

    Will you ever find the answer?
    Does the light really exist?

    Hush little dragonfly
    Stop your buzzing
    Fall silently
    Softly
    To the floor

    Living is fun when you lay in the sun
    And make love to your dog all year round
    But when you are done (and given the shun)
    Society screams you're the hound
