    Read the poems, take your choice!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of Dullener) Different Stories

    Voting will end on Thursday 3rd May 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.

    The Couple
    By Sword


    The couple sits upon the rock, their hands interlocked.
    They waste their time on the beach, letting the sun tan their cheeks.
    Sorrow makes the evening bittersweet, this will be the last time they meet.
    As they begin to part their ways, they begin to reminisce of those days in May.
    Even though their stories will be different now, the couple will always remember how.
    Nothing could ever beat, those few weeks they spent on the beach.

    BONNIE AND CLYDE
    By simplyrachel


    she sits alone in her apartment
    she cries herself to sleep
    she wonders if love will ever find her

    he parties till dawn
    he drinks himself to sleep
    he wonders if he'll ever find love

    they're eyes lock at a coffee shop
    they go out almost every night
    they get hitched in the moonlight

    She had different stories to say
    By panchal


    She had different stories to say,
    One of her Master,
    One of her Knight,
    One of her beloved
    She hold so tight..
    The Master guided and Taught her lessons..
    To keep the head upon her shoulder with high spirit sessions..
    The Knight came when she opened the black slaves from her towel..
    She became mum by presence.. forgot taught consonants and vowels..
    Her beloved peeped when she already fell for the Master and Knight
    But he took her in embrace of love.. incense of pure and warm sight
    Her stories are preserved in the womb of past…
    Will never take birth, will kick the memories so fast…

    Some say it is best to be alone
    By Barklight


    Some say it is best to be alone, to relax or be free. Others say you never truely are.
    But when there is no one you can turn to, not a soal you can talk to or see, it is a thing of sadness. And when the sun goes down and all it quiet...
    They admit to truely feeling alone...

    SOMEONE SPECIAL
    By Agatha Christie


    People all around,
    each busy with their life.
    But even in this crowded place
    loneliness is rife.

    So many faces,
    someone perhaps you know?
    So many faces,
    but not the right fellow.

    A word from a stranger,
    a simple 'hello.'
    But a word from this person
    sounds more like 'hollow'

    It's not this smiling mortal,
    not this face you seek.
    It's just one special person
    whose smile is quite unique.

    However many folk there are,
    no matter who's about,
    that very special person,
    there is loneliness without.

    Friends call round often.
    They come to your door.
    They can't replace that special face
    you knew so well before.

    There may be many people
    all around you find.
    But it's just one special person
    that's always on your mind.
