    Weekly Poetry Contest (124) - Indulgence

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Sep 13, 2010.

    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Twenty Four

    Welcome back to the poetry contest. After a brief hiatus, and a consultation, we're back, new and improved. The full details of the changes can be found here.

    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
    • Poems must be at least seven lines in length.
    • 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 last seven days, meaning it will close on Monday 20th September 2010.

    The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 23rd September 2010.

    And this week's theme is (courtesy of Garfuin): Indulgence

    The next (125th) contest's theme will be Haikus. Haikus on any subject will be accepted, and the 125th contest will be opened on 20th September 2010

    Be imaginative, have fun, and get writing.


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

    Diary vs. Dairy

    I spoilt myself rotten today.
    With that must-have I look so good,
    and it’s me that I look good for.

    I’m slimmer now too
    thanks to a spoonful of formula.
    I take it every day.

    My friends told me about it -
    we all like the same thing!
    I can’t wait to tell them how much I spoilt myself today.

    Plastic dreams

    Nothing but plastic, but we dive right in
    A Dionysian paradise, to distract our burden

    Of unanswered questions, unfulfilled dreams
    Blinded by desire, stone cold greed

    Let go of it all, or be deaf and attached
    to plastic dreams, without love or life

    Head torn from Heart

    I rip my self apart from the cold sheets
    You left me swimming in.
    I wanted you again
    And again.
    Just one more hour,
    To hold your scent inside my soul.
    To abandon all reason, morals,
    To be completely reckless in your presence.
    Here is where I drank from the cup of weakness
    Here is where I let you win.
