    Weekly Poetry Contest (168) Voting - Self vs. Society

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Nov 1, 2011.

    Only two entries again this week, so let's see lots of votes.

    And this week's theme was (courtesy of KingDerekx): Self vs. Society

    Voting will end on Friday 4th November 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.

    If my swallowed breath to whistled fall airs
    No longer does justice to tricks pigeons play
    Noted by passerby’s of such humble greys

    Then the tectonics of these oceans of mine
    Have drowned any clear path between me and you

    And If I could catch the words again and again
    By the opening of blinds between tongues
    I would feel as though the seas would much dryer now

    But even pigeons have mastered such silence
    And I’m not sure how much more to swallow
    To get to you to see what I need you to see
    Or how far for me to go to get you there

    Bad Teenage Poetry
    By Jetshroom


    I am not understanded,
    A forgotten tower endures alone.
    The wolves all leave me stranded.
    None pick up the phone.
    I cower in my cloister,
    Obscuring my heart,
    Like the stolen oyster,
    Forever forced apart.
    With teeth they rip my flesh to shreds,
    My innards hanging bare,
    The pack won’t even turn their heads,
    They cannot tell I’m there.
    Such society will never,
    Allow me to be free,
    My face I hide forever,
    They will never see.
    In my faith the reaper takes them,
    For what they’ve done to me,
    But if he does not claim them,
    At least he can take me.
