    Winning Poems From Weekly Contest (04)

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Raven, May 14, 2007.

    We have a tie.​

    Nadala


    Her Lullaby


    There is sweet peace in the waters tonight,
    No chill in the air without day’s light.
    Sinking down into the depths of vast sand,
    Outstretched in the water a lingering hand.
    I stare at it a while watch as I drift by.
    Her echoing screams some how soothing,
    My lullaby.

    I was suffering such a long time.
    Deaths fingers lay a rash, cold on my spine.
    The frost of the fathoms
    Phantom fingers grasping my feet,
    But I look back and think of you
    Suddenly pains obsolete.

    There would never be a meaning to you
    Without my demise.
    I never realized the elements in you
    Till I started to die.
    But you are most incredible
    And I won’t cry dying
    Hearing this angel lullaby.

    As the earths grasps me
    Exsaulted earthbound child,
    I will close my eyes
    And for you I shall smile.

    My last Breath


    This is my last regress
    If I could make on last wish
    I would live another life
    Without worry
    I look to the sky
    The snow falls so gently down
    This place is quiet
    I always new id go alone.

    I hear the wolves from the trees howl
    But I don’t see the angels that are meant to be
    A sudden rush of fear overcomes me
    Will there be only darkness
    I can see my past
    I remember the things done and said

    I remember the day I became a man
    And now those memories will fade away
    Like running water from a fall.

    The cold upon my face gives me small comfort
    The sky is dim and grey
    Just how I liked it
    The snow flakes float gently down
    I lay here thinking if this is the end
    Then at least it’s beautiful

    Of all the ways to leave
    This is the most peaceful
    I see no angels to great me
    I understand it’s not to be
    I have not sinned
    As I look a smile graces my chilled face
    I’m happy to leave
    Here alone in the snow filled fields
    Silent but for the sound of howling wolves
    And with my last breath
    I lay here thinking if this is the end
    Then at least its beautiful

    Congratulations upon your success winning people. One day I too will perhaps experience the very same flood of emotion that must be running through your veins at this moment.
