    Contest Winner! Winner of Poetry Contest #244 - Thomas Kitchen

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest' started by thirdwind, Jun 8, 2014.

    Congratulations to @Thomas Kitchen for winning Poetry Contest #244! You can read his winning entry below.

    I also want to mention that there was a two-way tie for second place between @Darkkin ("Broken Silence") and @cutecat22 ("Silence" (2)). Congrats to you both as well!

    Thomas Kitchen - PM me your idea for the next theme, which will be used for Poetry Contest #246.



    "The City of Silence"
    by Thomas Kitchen

    I walk the lonely well-trodden track,

    Not looking down, not looking back.

    The clouds have gathered, heavy and grey;

    Time has passed since it’s been day.



    I read the ancient wooden sign,

    Planted there as if a shrine.

    I stand before it, needing guidance,

    And there I read, “No path to Silence.”



    I walk again (the thunder roars),

    Passing the ruins of remembered wars.

    The city of Silence seems so compelling,

    And I must find it, and be dwelling.



    But soon I see the others lost,

    Striving for Silence, no matter the cost.

    Yet where does it lie? Not a single one knows;

    I look ahead and hear the crows.



    It seems Silence city will never be found,

    Forever we’ll wander, forever unsound.

    Anything for the silence of Silence –

    Instead of listening to life’s harsh sirens.
