    Weekly Poetry Contest (190) - Different Stories

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Apr 23, 2012.

    Poetry Contest
    One Hundred and Ninety

    Back on schedule again!

    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
    • 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.

    I'm going to be away and very busy over the Easter period, so this contest is going to be open for double the usual time. So the entry stage will be open for six days, closing on Monday 30th April 2012.

    The voting stage will begin immediately, and will be open for three days, ending on Thursday 3rd May 2012.

    And this week's theme is: (courtesy of Dullener) Different Stories

    The next (191st) contest's theme will be (courtesy of Konrast): Taking Time, and it will be opened on Monday 30th April 2012.

    Be imaginative, have fun, and get writing.


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

    The Couple

    The couple sits upon the rock, their hands interlocked.
    They waste their time on the beach, letting the sun tan their cheeks.
    Sorrow makes the evening bittersweet, this will be the last time they meet.
    As they begin to part their ways, they begin to reminisce of those days in May.
    Even though their stories will be different now, the couple will always remember how.
    Nothing could ever beat, those few weeks they spent on the beach.

    she sits alone in her apartment
    she cries herself to sleep
    she wonders if love will ever find her

    he parties till dawn
    he drinks himself to sleep
    he wonders if he'll ever find love

    they're eyes lock at a coffee shop
    they go out almost every night
    they get hitched in the moonlight

    She had different stories to say,
    One of her Master,
    One of her Knight,
    One of her beloved
    She hold so tight..
    The Master guided and Taught her lessons..
    To keep the head upon her shoulder with high spirit sessions..
    The Knight came when she opened the black slaves from her towel..
    She became mum by presence.. forgot taught consonants and vowels..
    Her beloved peeped when she already fell for the Master and Knight
    But he took her in embrace of love.. incense of pure and warm sight
    Her stories are preserved in the womb of past…
    Will never take birth, will kick the memories so fast…

    Some say it is best to be alone, to relax or be free. Others say you never truely are.
    But when there is no one you can turn to, not a soal you can talk to or see, it is a thing of sadness. And when the sun goes down and all it quiet...
    They admit to truely feeling alone...

    trust this is the right place for LONELINESS contest. submission below.


    People all around,
    each busy with their life.
    But even in this crowded place
    loneliness is rife.

    So many faces,
    someone perhaps you know?
    So many faces,
    but not the right fellow.

    A word from a stranger,
    a simple 'hello.'
    But a word from this person
    sounds more like 'hollow'

    It's not this smiling mortal,
    not this face you seek.
    It's just one special person
    whose smile is quite unique.

    However many folk there are,
    no matter who's about,
    that very special person,
    there is loneliness without.

    Friends call round often.
    They come to your door.
    They can't replace that special face
    you knew so well before.

    There may be many people
    all around you find.
    But it's just one special person
    that's always on your mind.
