Deny the obvious, uphold the inane.

3. All entries must be sent in by April 1st.
4. Anyone can enter this.
5. The voting begins on April 2nd.
6. Anyone who recives poems: Store them in our secret fourm in the Royal Knight's Castle.
7. People can vote for multiple contestants.
8. Voting is, obviously, for how much you like the poem, not just because you want the writer to get the prize.

Roads

The sunset is dark, but I kept walking
I wonder, what's the purpose.
I'll ask many questions
but get so few answers
And I'll keep walking.
I'll keep walking, goddamn it.

And I no longer care
If they get in my way
Whether or not they move
I'll go on.
I'll go on.
And it only matters
That I move my feet
And I keep walking


----

It's not good, true, but it's my entry. Let's get this rolling.

HAH! Mine is worse! By a long shot! Just some lyrics I thought up while listening to ZAO and mewithoutyou, and yeah, lyrics count as poetry.

I saw the darkness coming
Like fog in the harbor,
Yet I stood, stayed,
Let it take me in
Now I can't breathe
Choking
Gasping
Trying to find a way out of this nightmare
Trying to find a way out of this hell
I saw a light in the horizon
Running
Like a fool towards my only salvation
And now I breathe easier
One day at a time
One day

Yes, those are mine, damn it. You can tell because they suck.

Thinking of which to post...

Had decided, then found an old song or two.

*just posting this to reassure all that I WILL be participating.*

NOTES: SORRY FOR THE WEIRD FORMAT! But it reads totally utterly stupidly if laid out wrong. and the lines are too long for the forum, so this was my best idea. It took fucking AGES to do all these [align] codes. Just read left-middle-right-middle-left and so forth. If there's any confusion due to line sizes, each grouping is supposed to have three lines. Large gaps are like verse space things. Uhm. It READS like a poem...

Oh solipsistic fireflies,
you try for better flame;
one day you will learn it's all inane.
A blazing ring of firelight
that holds one thousand flames;
yet still pathetic fireflies remain.
Descending to ambiguity,
to rise again in fame;
such is a life harassed and filled with pain.
Dependent on integrity,
denying any shame;
deceit's the only thing that keeps you sane.
Take after Mister Butterfly,
he would have done the same;
yet he is not so pompous, not so vain.


We see that little butterfly,
perched on the window-pane,
with such a tiny body, tiny brain.
Yet I have heard talk that it could,
if it would so deign,
change reality; our mortal plane.
This is an exaggeration,
scientists maintain;
these tiny bugs can't cause such hurricanes.


Nevertheless the rumour flies,
spinning on a web of lies,
to reach the ears of those who place the blame.Thoughtless thoughts through smile-less eyes,
all that they see they despise,
they look around at wind-torn country lanes.
They blame the little butterfly,
such a beauty to the eye,
condemning it to never live again.


Just one saying, such a crime,
these things never again to fly,
some idle metaphor an insect's bane.
Meant for those who live in grime,
all those poor souls who, in due time,
would rail against their limits, not be tame.Yet the whole message was lost,
the set of ears that it had crossed
were not the ones to whom it would pertain.
Now there are no butterflies,
no flutt'ring wings for idle eyes,
thanks to our friend to whom t'was but a game.


One tattered wing of butterfly,
the only that remains...
A remnant of revolt that never came.
Yet caterpillar sightings rise;
the winds begin to change...
Hope rises in the air, between the flames.
What is there to live but life?/Suffering through endless strife...

THUG LIFE
~~~~~~~~~~~~
I work hard to live the way I live,
reminiscing on everything I did.

I had to fight to earn my respect,
viewing everything around me as an object,

To steal,
to deal,
to take,
to make,
dismissing everything I thought was fake,
yet even now I still carry the hate,
The way I used to live,
the way I live today,
the bodies I`ve destroyed sinking to the bottom of the bay,
hoping that taking anothers life will help guide my way.

The hardships I`ve suffered have only made me stronger,
making my already shortened life last much longer.

7 days a week a full time goon,
to the sadness of others I`ve become immune,
and now I have truly come to assume,
that my sad life was destined to be doomed.

Yet still I recognize this unfamiliar love,
giving those who deserve it my last hug,
taking this one last hit of this intoxicating drug,
and in the end I look to the sky above,
wanting all to remember me as nothing but a thug...

Ok, here's mine, lol.

~*~*~
Flowers

Have you stopped a while,
To glance at a flower in full bloom,
And felt its power to banish a moment,
All the gloom?

The delicate bud peeps out into the world,
Shy and unsure,
It is the harbringer of hope,
And knows soon it shall mature.

Its tender touch on your lips,
Brings back memories of your first kiss.
It beauty haunts you,
And its presence you can never miss.

A flower in its limited life,
Teaches all we need to learn,
Its selflessness inspires us,
Never to go wrong on any turn.

It spreads its fragrance all around,
Sharing it with one and all,
Everyone is equal --
No one rich or poor, big or small.

The bees fly to it for nectar,
Ants and butterflies too,
We humans reap its fruits,
And turn them to merchandise for livelihood.

Let's learn to be unselfish,
Spread our warmth and charm,
Age grace fully, shrivel and discolour,
Yet excude dignity till the end...
Live life like a flower, my friend.

Here's my very excellent, but very short poem.

"I hate poetry."

Seriously. -_- (My school made us write a lot of poems in elementary school, but mine were never very good, so i stopped liking poetry.)

Well I guess I could write a short poem. Wasn't planning to, but I suddenly got a burst of inspiration.

I've got time
and I can rhyme,
but poems are
as good as slime.

There. How's that?

Barren and bare
All empty, alone
Abandoned lives
Disowned, shut away
Lock the door
It chills the soul

You can hear the silent footsteps
As the past treads by
They all ran; they all ran

The crowd dispersed into nothing
Now so empty
Now so cold
So alone

Just look around
The world's gone missing
No one's left

Dying trees reach up high
Derelict prayer
They remember it all
Sentinels of the eternal currents
That slowly tore us apart

A faded grey land
Diminished
The sun is shrouded
And the storm batters the dust below

The crowd dispersed into nothing
Now so empty
Now so cold
So alone

A world gone missing
No one's left
Only me

I made a revised version of my last thing during photoshop class, (We have to make a CD cover, she also made us make up a band, name, number of members, etc. I decided to be a jackass and fill up a page and a half with song lyrics, lol)


Choking Darkness

I just stood and watched it happen
The darkness surround me
And I did nothing

Now I canít see where I am going
Where I am
Or where Iíve been
Iím choking
Suffocating

I was a fool and fell off path
I watched everyone pass me by
And I need something to run towards
Save me from myself

Now I canít see where I am going
Where I am
Or where Iíve been
Iím choking
Suffocating

I saw your face again
Through the black
A glimpse of light and hope for my pitiful soul
And I ran towards the light
Running like the fool I am

And now I breathe easier one day at a time
One day at a time.
