    Weekly Poetry Contest (189) Voting - Loneliness

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Apr 23, 2012.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Eighty Nine
    Voting




    Read the poems, take your choice!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of Soulfighter-123) Loneliness

    Voting will end on Thursday 26th April 2012.

    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.

    Loneliness
    By superpsycho


    Lost upon a canvass of obscurity
    Omitted
    Nebulous in a crowd of mediocrity
    Erased
    Left adrift in a sea of ambiguity
    Ignored
    Numb to hateful taunts in perpetuity
    Eclipsed
    Stripped bare of any sense of security
    Silenced

    The Dark Room
    By ithestargazer


    This creature is blind,
    No mirrors,
    No reflection,
    No fame,
    Let the light drown itself,
    No sadness,
    No sympathy,
    No shame.
    The doors remain locked,
    No intruders,
    No connections,
    No name.

    I also get a chance one day to see you like me
    By panchal


    I also get a chance one day to see you like me
    You’ll be thirsty and will not hide your thirst
    You’ll roam alone in dark and deep dream
    You’ll get old day by day.. No companion
    I suffered the similar punishment with loneliness
    You will suffer the same
    Where you never get a desert or a thirst
    At the end you’ll revise the memories and say
    Your courtship was better than loneliness this way

    Trapped in a scientist's refrigerator
    By Floatbox


    Trapped in a scientist's refrigerator
    with all his frozen cats to disect later,
    an old radio looping the top pop,
    among loose deli meat
    and a mirror,
    I sit cramped
    over charts of an x-rayed heart,
    graphing the toy robots tearing apart
    calculations and accusations drawn,
    as tight as a string
    of broken art
    I am,
    kept suffering in this experiment of grated air
    by an indifferent and the audience he shares,
    crowded with beauty and basil and bread
    bought with lottery tickets printed
    on locks of hair,
    I wait
    through songs sung too familiar
    to future fantasies too similar
    to the lonely laws of quasi-science
    questioning love,

    I surrender
    by the plastic locked.

    Still
    By Cristian


    I sit and frown upon,
    this picture before me.
    My parents, my siblings
    Years ago,
    In a millieu now completely forgotten -
    My home.
    I miss them so much,
    My foster brothers and sisters,
    are dear to me, however...
    they are but libels compared to
    those sharing my flowing blood.

    Still...

    The anguish and grief severs me
    from head to toe,
    deep in my mind...
    I keep telling myself,
    that my stale heart has mended.
    Yet it is not so..
    Oh,

    How I wish it were so...

    Woe is me.
    By Soulfighter-123


    Oh, woe is me.
    I shall forever envy every walking soul I encounter in this judgmental society.
    I do not feel the freedom - reminiscent of a lonesome apple, waiting patiently on a single branch...just waiting in solitary desperation for somebody to come and release me - to free me from this abandonment. To bestow upon me a friend.
    I feel hidden away from humanity - shoved aside and concealed like a gravestone inscription on the verge of silently fading away. A gravestone smothered in conspicuous green moss.
    Woe is me, for I stand alone.
