    Writers Trinity Voting

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Mar 28, 2008.

    Writers Trinity
    :eek: The First :eek:


    Welcome to the first ever WritingForums.org Writers Trinity poetry contest voting.


    Voting will end in 3 days from now, the 1st of April.

    Voting for yourself is entirely at your own disgression. 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, it'll be castration (or whatever I deem the female equivilent to be). You have been warned *evil laughs, whilst sharpening a carving knife...*

    Seriously folks, don't do it. There is no prize to be won here but bragging rights, making cheating an exercise in pointlessness.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting

    Gannon ~ Man's Best Friend

    I dream in deep mahogany
    as I sleep beside the sea.
    A dark fire flickers,
    watching over me.

    The noble neck smoulders
    like some tortured effigy
    and the tight strings squeal,
    crying to be set free.

    The body sounds its anger
    and the sea responds raw:
    the cracking of the veneer,
    the slapping of the shore.

    The neck bows in simple defeat,
    no deathroes overwrought:
    a chordant whisper as she burns
    in harmonic afterthought.

    I dream in deep mahogany
    as I sleep beside the sea.
    A dark fire flickers,
    watching over me.

    ray_a_koooll ~ Love's life has no age

    Sublime is the sea of piousness,
    Lost in a mist of uncertainity,
    Strayed from the walk of life,
    With no footprints beside him.

    Then one day she entered his life,
    Her skin tannd to a deep mahogany,
    Her lips a shade of ruby paradise,
    And he fell in love.

    Years slipped by as sand from the fingers ,
    And in solitary afterthought,
    Often he would feel like he’s supposed to catch a train,
    But he’s late like always, and it’s leaving him behind.

    He would sometimes wake up after a dream,
    And he would fear she’d leave him too,
    Because he was well aware of the fact,
    She was young, and he was old.

    But now he’s passed on to his last phase in life,
    She’s happily married and he cared for,
    But often on many a sleepy afternoon, he thinks back,
    To the first time she called him, Dad.

    AWR ~ Mahogany Rose

    Carved deep
    Mahogany rose blooms
    Petals of wood
    Never to fade

    Old dust
    Hidden in creases
    Tell of time passing
    Ageless still

    Silent
    Artisan’s afterthought
    In sight of no-one
    Mark of pride

    Flowering
    Ever dreaming of Winter
    Beauty existing
    Mahogany rose

    moonlightmusic ~ Floating Memories

    Dreams
    They flit by
    Oh so silently
    Forgotten shadows

    The silhouettes
    Of memories lost
    Flash concurrently
    on the mahogany tiles

    Without an afterthought
    She smiles and waves
    Waving goodbye
    Goodbye to everything

    Taking a last look
    At the world around her
    She closes her eyes
    Her time has come.

    Silence
    It comes so slowly
    The seconds chip away
    She is still.

    Dawn breaks
    The sun peeks out from the horizon
    She is but a memory
    Lost and forgotten.

    Phaiyle ~ World of Dreams

    Nothing means more to me
    than the dream I used to dream
    The morn of stars and fiery orb
    steals my heart from sleep

    This mortal world of lies
    traps me in a nightmare scene
    with not an afterthought
    of the wistful dreams I dream

    And weeping deep mahogany
    I push my soul to silence
    In the sun, work to be done
    I force my sorrow aside

    I push myself another day
    and hope to make it through
    for when I'm home and all alone
    The world of dreams comes a new

    TheOnly13 ~ Me&You

    You're just the afterthoughts
    Of dreaming in paper green
    Of being in magazines
    And in starring in the major scenes.

    You're just the afterthoughts
    Of rich mahogany scents, and
    No paper and no pen
    Can create a picture making you fitting.

    You're just the afterthoughts
    Of a glass one too many, and
    Extra bites after you'd had plenty
    And taking in more than your fill.

    You're just the afterthoughts,
    And you're just a disgrace.
    You're the start to all my problems,
    The end to all my days...

    But from the old afterthoughts
    And the torn memories
    I find the sickening reality
    Of the person that is 'me'.

    Cogito ~ Night Song

    The warmth of your body melts into me
    musk and patchouli, your fragrance divine
    a cinnamon afterthought wafts from your lips
    I lie wrapped around you, at consummate peace
    jealous moon watches from October skies
    as the world of my thoughts is solely comprised
    of mahogany skin, and caramel eyes

    The tide of your breathing, a somnolent sea
    A moan escapes you as dreaming you lie
    You wake for a moment, and grant me a smile
    then settle in closer and we both drift asleep
    lonely moon watches from October skies
    but the world of my thoughts is solely comprised
    of your satin mahogany skin,
    and your sparkling caramel eyes.

    Roxie ~ Perpetual Afterthought

    Like a stone skipping on the waves
    I skip from reality to dreaming phase
    One skip here, another skip there
    Leaving me in a mahogany haze
    Everything is a blur
    I am always unsure
    What is real and what is dream
    I feel like I am in a state
    Of perpetual afterthought
    All the scenes jumbled
    From skip to skip
    Fleeting sensations
    In the pit of my stomach
    Never able to make sense of it
