    Weekly Poetry Contest (96) Voting - One Perfect Moment

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Sep 18, 2009.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    Ninety Six
    Voting



    The contest is closed, and voting shall now commence!

    This week's theme is (courtesy of Cogito: One Perfect Moment

    Voting will end on Monday 21st September 2009.

    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.

    There is no prize to be won here, you can not claim you are an award winning poet, so as you can see, cheating really is pointless here!

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.


    Banzai


    IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm afraid, due to leftover restrictions in place from the 50th Short Story Contest, some of our more recent members may find themselves unable to vote. I am aware of this problem, but unfortunately only Daniel can resolve it. So until he does, I apologise for any inconvenience.

    Perfect moment of Love
    By AspiringJotter


    If i have to wait until im old and grey,
    And only get to kiss you once,
    But hear you say i love you too.
    Ill die happy and complete.
    All i want is to hold you close,
    And feel your heart beat in time with mine.
    Our souls will join and become one as they should have done long ago.
    I live to make you laugh and see your smile,
    You are my soulmate and forever will i be here,
    If you ever feel the same call upon me and together our lives will be spent together.
    In love and happiness we will grow old together.
    this perfect moment will last forever, with love and happiness i will fly to the heavens in Perfect bliss.

    In that Perfect Moment
    ANT (Bar YOSEF)


    In that perfect moment nothing mattered,
    No-one else in the world mattered, just me and you,
    Locked in our warm embrace,
    Just us, face to face.

    In that perfect moment, no-one else cared,
    No prying eyes, disapproving looks,
    The two of us could only win,
    Then a new moment will begin.

    A Perfect Moment
    By RIPPA MATE


    It is hard to see,
    What lies ahead,
    Tears and rain,
    Or incredible bliss?

    We seek our Edens,
    Through our lives,
    Flowers bloom,
    But time withers by.

    One needs some hope,
    From deaths dark sting,
    Where is it found?
    What will it bring?

    There'll be a time,
    Of perfect peace,
    People in wonder,
    Awe and reverence.

    But I further seek,
    For a greater gift,
    An endless moment,
    Of life to live.

    Trenches
    By Cadavar


    In silence we rest.
    Inner most utterings,
    torments demons in dark expressed.
    And the moon casts shadow
    Solemn, silk and sallow.
    One perfect moment seems far away from here.
    All thoughts of our enemy quiver and clear.
    Diggers become only mates,
    initiating conversation
    puffing on smokes,
    pauses due to verbal constipation
    Then it’s on again!
    When it doesn’t rain it pours
    and the men are killed in war ravaged scores.

    Tragedy and Travesty
    TheHedgehog


    Too long he’d been waiting,
    lying, laying in the shadows
    of the mountains: undefined
    monuments of his evils.

    Trees rustled with the whispers
    of summer wind, and he cast
    them aside, the words of
    concerned friends.

    Finally a perfect moment
    in a life of torment.
    His yoke and chains disintegrated
    with newly-discovered laughter and love.

    What a tragedy
    to befall a travesty:
    how he spoke one true word
    in a lifetime of lies,
    how he was blind for years
    before he could finally see.

    And who was this man?
    This man was me.

    the perfect moment
    By vangoghsear


    time doesn’t wait
    for the perfect moment.
    it rolls steadily on,
    like a ball, on the side,
    of a road, in a gutter,
    on a hill, toward a
    rain drain grate...

    each revolution
    of that ball in the gutter
    marks an image of
    a minute misspent.
    another instant,
    the perfect moment
    eludes us once again.

    you glimpse the
    moment the movement masks
    as the ball rolls relentlessly on
    gathering visions,
    glorious dreams
    like wet leaves stuck,
    like a fool to a scheme,
    it’s there and then it’s gone.

    we reach and we crawl!
    we grasp and we claw!
    at the ball spiraling ever down.
    receding away,
    proceeding always,
    towards the
    rain drain grate...

    where it drowns.
