    Weekly Poetry Contest (221) - Nothingness

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Jan 7, 2013.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    Two Hundred and Twenty One




    If you want to make a good start to your writing year, the poetry contest is always a good place to start.

    The Rules
    • All entries must be on the set theme.
    • Only one entry per member.
    • No editing of entries once posted without my express permission (i.e. PM me and ask).
    • Poems must be titled
    • Entries must not have previously posted on the forums, and are not permitted to be posted for critique until AFTER the contest is completed.
    • Any violation of these rules will result in disqualification of entries, and possibly infraction.


    The entry stage will be open for six days, closing on Monday 14th January 2013.

    The voting stage will begin immediately -- provided, of course, we're still here -- and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 17th January 2013.

    And this week's theme is: (courtesy of Timewalker) Nothingness


    The next (221st) contest's theme will be (courtesy of me): New Leaves and it will be opened on Monday 14th January 2013.


    Be imaginative, have fun, and get writing.


    Banzai


    PS: If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. I don't bite (much).

    Beats into Nothingness

    The city’s soul
    Beats to the top; nonstop
    Wanting to hear the bodies drop
    Always in control.

    In the twilight
    Footprints scatter; antimatter
    Settling to sleep amongst the chatter
    Giving up the fight.

    But in the dark
    Individual digress, acquiesce
    Defeated, fading into nothingness
    Beating like a heart.

    "Frustration"

    From the hallowed halls of
    The Elite
    The Great
    and Powerful

    My path to the future
    Was Clear,
    Was Open;
    How Infinite!

    The world that awaited
    Had Chaos
    Had Fright
    and Confusion

    My pot of gold was void
    No Milk,
    No Honey;
    How Meaningless!

    Stuck in a dead-end job
    I Wonder
    I Wilt
    and Agonize

    Following the footprints in the sand...
    Conundrum

    A conundrum of nothingness...
    A word, which in and of itself,
    Is a word, a something...
    Not a nothing...

    A nothing is, well...

    The aforementioned void above.
    A total absence...

    No word, thought...
    Deed or dream.
    It is an abeyance...
    Of all and sundry.

    Here we go peeps, shade your eyeballs x...

    Nothingness

    I slipped.
    Slid to a puddle
    sat in the middle
    splashed
    like the ugliest bird:
    no breadcrumb raised my spirits.
    I flapped
    sodden wings
    and my voice, oh I tried to sing,
    but a croak,
    and as the heavens opened
    the water rose, covered my nose
    I choked...
    Hear my cry
    was at the pond I died.

    Always Something

    An echo, a pinwheel galaxy;
    Where negative and positive collide
    And the number zero is a wreath of infinity.
    There is no nothing.
