    Weekly Poetry Contest (207) Voting - Sound of Silence

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Sep 10, 2012.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    Two Hundred and Seven
    Voting



    Get your vote on!

    And this week's theme was: (courtesy of nomadpenguin) The Sound of Silence

    Voting will end on Thursday 13th September 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.

    ABSURDITYOF SILENCE
    By Agatha Christie


    “…............................

    …............................?

    .............................

    ….............................”
    Silence is a hindrance
    A nuisance in an instance

    “….............................

    ….............................

    …............................?

    …............................”
    Silence is a lark
    Just leaves us in the dark

    “…...........................

    …...........................

    …...........................

    …...........................”

    Silence is frustrating
    Brings anger in relating
    “…...............................

    …...............................

    …...............................!

    …...............................”

    Silence be forbidden
    Speech is best not hidden

    .…. ….....
    (the) (end)

    MY SILENCE
    By Mckk


    Silence crashes the party
    like a cold bucket of water.
    It rings and chimes until you notice,
    turns your head.
    Silence demands to be heard;
    closes over your ears:
    invisible, intangible,
    and though you shake your head
    Silence clings,
    Like glue,
    Like sickly honey
    Dripping over your senses.
    You can't hear your own voice.
    Silence takes you –
    an absence, a nothing
    that stands where you stood
    claiming to be you,
    And all who walks pass
    glances through empty space,
    Looking for something
    that was.

    The Four Senses of Silence
    By kyelena2


    Visual beauties are found through the eyes,
    Like the clouds dancing in the skies.
    Textural wonders are found through touch,
    Like getting a massage that I love so much.
    Exotic aromas are found through smells,
    Like an apple pie that the bakery sells.
    Sweet pleasures are found through taste,
    Like cupcakes that expand the waist.
    Whimsical melodies are found through hearing,
    Like…
    What if you live in the world of silence?
    You can’t hear the music’s brilliance.
    How can you describe what you don’t hear,
    I can tell you now, without fear.
    Whimsical melodies are found through touch,
    Like waves crashing down into my clutch.
    Just because you cannot hear,
    Doesn’t mean you let the world disappear.
    The sound of silence is controlled,
    By the other four senses, such a sight to behold.

    Gone
    By Lydia


    The last thing to leave was the rattling car-
    metal junk clunking as wheels hit the road.
    I watched till there was naught to watch anymore

    then followed my old feet back inside.

    I expected to hear a voice in the room
    but even the clock on the wall had given up
    and the roses outside, always fully in bloom

    now brown and withered, had died.

    The wind moved the trees, but it did so unheard
    and the old kitchen floor refused to creak.
    when a cough left my mouth, it was almost absurd

    I silenty let out a sigh.


    And I awake at night, with noise all around.
    I panic, and with wide open eyes I stare.
    But it is dark, and empty, and all I can hear
    is the pounding drums
    from silence’s sound.

    Treacherous Silence
    By Autumn Fae


    The sound of silence is everywhere and near.
    in heaven and space,
    ...the blackness that separates the stars and also... men misunderstood.


    Silence is the witness to secrets untold and kept hidden
    buried in the hearts of transgressors.

    Silence hears and sees all when it goes unnoticed by those who think
    there has been no witness, no soothsayer... only themselves and the grim treachery
    that consumes their heart and soul.
