    Writers Trinity the 3rd Voting

    Discussion in 'Monthly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Jun 30, 2008.

    Writers Trinity
    :eek: The Third :eek:

    Welcome to the third WritingForums.org Writers Trinity poetry contest voting.

    Voting will end in 3 days from now, the 3rd of July.

    Voting for yourself is entirely at your own discretion. 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.

    Just a quick reminder about this week's challenge::

    Craft a poem using the following three words listed below:

    (remember each of the following words/objects MUST be included in the poem. As always, the plural forms of the words count. ie: run - Runs, running. Ran is not acceptable)

    1 ~ Building
    2 ~ Pellucid <-1- transparent: allowing all or most light to pass through (literary) -2- clear in meaning: easy to understand or clear in meaning (formal) >
    3 ~ Credulous < -1- gullible: too easily convinced that something is true -2- due to readiness to believe: resulting from a tendency to believe things too readily>

    Oh, and if I catch anyone cheating, you will be sent to the dungeons, tortured and then hung. You have been warned *evil laughs, whilst preparing the tortur chambers...*

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

    Also, I urge members not to post in this thread at all. It clogs up the thread and all posts will be removed. Thanks you.

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting​

    dirty light leeches through a barely pellucid window
    illuminating only a portion of the abandoned building
    in which you so humbly reside, comfortable solitude
    cement and soil floor emits decay and sorrow
    into the surrounding air you reluctantly breath

    long greasy black hair, swept to the side covers one eye
    one vision of clarity, one eye of peace
    no material or lust consumes your barren soul
    no credulous faith or pretentious love

    your only punishment rests in the hands of gripping life
    your only escape in the slice of your knife
    the blue slowly washes from your eyes
    fleeing a vacant soul

    Stare if you will, child
    I call you in to stare through.
    What could or would be the one window
    left for you to stare through…

    Harken how pellucid the view is- note the
    death surrounding your view.

    Please do tell me dear little child, if the devil
    gave you solace would the view be any different?
    Tell the people what you see baby… tell them the
    choking, lonely, people are dying as the world caves in.
    Leaving them behind.

    It is not the buildings caving in,
    nor the earth shaking.
    It is the devil looking for the credulous little girl…

    Little girl called the devil to kill the world.
    “Choke the world on concrete so mummy can’t leave…”
    Little demon does nothing but kill, how
    evil your mind is Baby-Girl.

    LOOK! Child Look!
    Stare at your work through the now smoky window.
    Innocence is not your thing, when you are the spawn of Satan.
    Is that what you were called?

    Poor selfish child.
    Let the world die, it will know nothing of this…

    Simple truth is hard to hear.
    So listen child listen.
    Love now while you have the chance.
    Life is a bitch.

    Don’t choke on the concrete.

    Cuts and lacerations,
    how the eyes dissect.
    For every wrong done
    how can a man forget?

    His reality pellucid
    in deep water now.
    With a diary of nails under arm,
    he takes the roof, a single bound

    All those people
    under roof,
    brandishing suit and tie.
    To each a monster
    his swallowed him some how.

    There’s a reflection in the pavement
    a ruffling of invisible wings.
    He’s a middle aged nothing
    no wife and a wedding ring.

    He so credulous
    deceived by life somehow.
    How fate has battered him,
    he fought at figured gnarled.

    The worst is over now;
    life felt like a thousand deaths.
    Those magic doors won’t open for him,
    he can’t face what’s left.
