    Writers Trinity the 3rd

    Discussion in 'Monthly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Jun 22, 2008.

    Writers Trinity
    :eek: The Third :eek:

    Welcome to the second Writers Trinity poetry contest.

    This contest will be run every 4 weeks in place of the already running poetry contest.

    Contest Closes : 29 of June, 2008​

    The rules are as follows:

    Only one entry per member, anyone submitting more than one poem will be disqualified from the poetry contest.

    The poem must contain each of the three words supplied by myself and if not, the poem will be removed from the contest. If said word is the moon, it must be used.

    Each poem must be a minimum of 10 lines and no longer than 30 lines.

    There will be no editing a poem once it is submitted unless you pm myself with full detail of what you wish to change with your submission.. If I see that an entry has been edited it will be removed from the contest and you will be notified by the PM system.

    All poems must be titled, if I find a poem that is untitled it will be removed from the contest and you will be notified via the PM system.

    All poems are to be placed in this thread or they will not be counted as a entry into this contest.

    The piece MUST be an original.

    Using any or all of the words in the poem's title does not meet the qualifications - all words must appear in the poem's body.

    Now with the nasties out the way onto business.

    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>

    If there are any further questions in regards to this contest please send me a PM and I will respond as soon as I get the PM.

    Thank you kindly

    :) Torana :)

    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

    Choke on Concrete

    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.

    in a little cage in the bowls of Cephalid

    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.
