Poetry Contest

Share romantic poems.
"[Romance is] a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love. . . . love, especially when sentimental or idealized."- Google.

I might not consider poems without the theme #romantic. Poems will be commented on. If you want comments, then put your poem webpage's full url link (or just the 6 digits that are within that url) at the bottom of your posts.

submit any poem, even if it was written beforehand, commented on by me or in a previous contest. submit 3 poems maximum, but no duplicate entries. Don't add or edit posts, after the contest has closed. Your poem can't solely be an image, audio, or video; but must have some accessible text that wholly represents it.

Message me with any concern, including of integrity or of rule violations.

Here's some inspiration from last competition:

EdibleWords said:Colors


Like a flashing sunset
Or likewise a sunrise
This moment by your side
Everything is glowing
This setting comes alive

Like a light, scattered rain
A summer sprinkler’s bow
The colors show again
Linked with you at elbow
You make me feel alive

Like a jewel’s prism
Or sparkling crystal vase
Your own luminism
Colors my inner space
Eternally alive


wallyroo92 said:My Soul Whispers Her Name


My soul whispers her name,
Again and again,
In dreams where forever exists in one day,
In the memory of one embrace,
One caress,
Enough to last me a thousand lifetimes.

I get lost in the thoughts of the allure,
The sensation that lingers like days of youth,
A daze of truth,
Relishing in the delight which came
Out of that beautiful chaos
And brought us here.

When I open my eyes,
I think of her,
I hear her,
I feel the warmth of her touch,
So close and tactile like a dream escaped,
And the ecstasy
…is all mine.

I long to kiss her lips,
Remembering our first
Like it was a last,
With all the passion in the world,
Engraved in my heart.

When she looks at me that certain way,
The glance says so much,
Not even a thousand verses
Will capture the emotion…
But I love looking into her eyes,
It makes me smile.

Then suddenly
Her name escapes my lips.


danigirl32 said:Pushing my Own Boundries


as emerald eyes captivate me,
the Intensity of my Animal Spirit ,
brings me to this cage gate
and I linger here until you respond...  
 
with intense cat eyes,
passing rigid boundaries,
my breasts move, in
increased wet cadences  
 
visual manhandling, changing
the pitch of my emotional voice,
making it all the more possible
for me, to ignore my self-control
 
i am finding more strength
in my own grip, holding
my silences as my body presses tightly against,
while holding my pacing form
 
guarding anxiety or excitement
that is not apparent, to your
awaiting hearts enchroachment...

Beautiful Nightmare

   Chains tied to my body laced up to this rusty bed.  
   Stuck in the fantasies of a disturbed man.  
   His hands slightly caressing my locks.  
   Then feeling my soft skin.  
   Scared to even scream because of fear of him taking my breath away with his cold hands.  
  Afraid to even cringe in the likes of a monster.    
  Afraid that if I even try to escape from his Maze of a place that, that knife would Pierce me to my final resting place.    
   But I stared into his cold eyes and began to have solace for him.  
 The man with no soul.  
 The man with no conscience.    
The man with no emotions.    
The man with no love in his heart. Maybe my worst nightmare can be my long awaited affair.    
   He begins to kiss and bite me on my neck.
 I wanted to scream, but I felt pleasure before pain.    
  I couldn't contain my desire for him to hurt me and make me suffer.  
  Our love would be so undercover.    
   He whispered in my ear and asked me did I know who he was.  
    I shook my head no quickly. He asked me did I trust him enough to love me whole heartedly.    
   He begins to caress me and undress me.    
    I knew then that he wanted me, all of me.    
    I seen the hunger and eagerness in his eyes to explore me.    
   The sense of feeling wanted by a woman and wanting everything she can  give.    
I also can feel my temperature rising as I feel his chest against mines.  
 I didn't care if I was about to make love to a man or a monster.  
 I just wanted him to make me the essence of his world.    
    He begins to tickle my ribcage and I laughed in bliss.    
    He picked me up and pinned me to the wall throwing his mass seduction on me.  
 I let my guard down and let him have me.    
   I threw away all the pain, hurt and guilt.    
     I felt his soul and all I could feel was a sense of hopelessness and heartbreak.  
    Tears started coming from his eyes and from that point I knew he was hurt before.    
   I started to think how could a whore hurt a man that gives his love in sweet galore.    
   His hands moved to my waist and he kissed me again.    
He whispers into my ear and told me will I ever leave him.  
    I replied, no I'm falling for you.  
   He says to me, I can't kill you.    
My love for you is endless and if you die by my hands your blood will consume me.    
I thought by having the chance to have your lifeless body in my arms that I would have your soul.  
 I can't hurt the woman that I've loved for so long.    
   I paused I'm shock and wondered how he knew me.  
     I remembered how he kissed me and held me the same way he used to.    
    I knew then that it was my long lost lover. I passed out in his arms.    
    My dreams and nightmares was all him.  
   An angel in the night.    
   A thief in the disguise.    
   A predator lurking.    
    I didnt care I just was glad to have the love of my life come back to me.    
   Heaven has answered my prayers.    
   The love of my life has returned to me and now my nightmare has turned to my long awaited affair.    
  That has called my heart for so long.

A birds Symphony

The bird that broke its wing
Sang a sombre song
It sang all night long
sang for the sunrise
Sang for the moon
Sang for recovery
Hoping it will come soon

The bird that broke its wing
Whispered with the wind
As it was the wind
That lead the song into the air
But all this bird could think about was her

The bird that broke its wing sat there
Waiting for what it knew was already true

The bird sat there whilst knowing
She was already in the air
For she sang a sombre song
A song so strong

For it reminded her of days long gone

The bird that flew
Sang for the bird with a broken wing

For it was the wind that fuzed
The two sombre songs
And made a melody
So sweet
A symphony of sombreness
The destruction of loneliness

Because when his wing recovered
It was his heart that she mended

But now
Now they fly together
Floating in the whispering wind

Singing a duet of joy
Then Reciting A birds Symphony

Take Me To A Place

Take me to a place  
where they're snowflakes in the air  
where we can snuggle by the fire  
and make worries disappear  

The music will be the backdrop  
as my eyes just speak to you  
true visions ever beautiful  
feelings proclaimed anew  
 
A gentle touch upon your cheek  
a kiss or two comply  
the heat more than the fire  
with time just floating by  
 
Take me to a place  
where I can see you bare  
romance strips the pretense  
removing all our fear

Death fell for Tragedy

Death and Tragedy
Had a conversation
Trying to figure out
which of the two
had a bigger impact on you

Tragedy was your playmate
Whilst Death became your soul Mate
But Tragedy came into your life before Death
Yet Death Has chained your heart ever since

Tragedy introduced you to Death
But Death was my mutual friend too
Yet I never knew that before I met you

Tragedy's identity has been stolen by love
For love is Fought For
Whilst many Fear Tragedy
as much as they fear Death
And that is How Tragedy and Death became Friends

Tragedy has left you with eyes that cut into my Soul
Death has left you with a Heart that comforts many
Tragedy has given your smile more meaning
While Death still holds your heart

On the Day I met you
I never knew that Tragedy was at play
Because when I met Death
I never knew that I would have to wrestle with it in order to Earn Your Heart

But Tragedy
has given you so much Beauty
and that lead to the Death of Tragedy

Death has left me with your Heart
and that lead to the Tragedy of Death

[In the process]

I became Death;
and You became Tragedy
what this really means
is that I (Death)
have fallen for You (Tragedy)

LOVE STORY

I hope to fly you so high
that the sky won't catch you
The highest form of my affection
Let my sweet words caress you
So I will see how deep you are
I promise to support you reach a greater height
and when I glance into your nature
I promise to see beyond physical pleasure
and hold you close, my treasure.
I promise to give you whats better than best
the best of my effort
I will make the moment we shared
seems like heaven or forever
Just let your love
be a constant dripplet on me
So that my heart might have enough of you.
What more can i say
-than I love you.

Until That Day💌


Was it London, Paris or Rome?    
Strangers who’s stars had crossed and yet  
Better than that, on the Internet  
Where we met in each other’s home!  
 
The first real-time meeting one day!  
Will I be shy (I'm not!), will he?  
Shall I betray a quaking she  
Who lives a life with feet of clay?  
 
I giggle at those words I say  
That I just now have written.  
He knows how much I like to chat,  
I’m
worse though when I’m smitten!  
 
Oh how he loves my chirpy voice,  
Unless he calls when I’m asleep.  
I just adore to make him laugh;  
Because I am the silly half!  
 
The moment of our very first,  
A dizzy face-to-face romance,  
Will one day be at hand-to-hand,  
Which sounds just like a combat stance! 
 
I'll get to see his hands before  
He reaches out and touches more 
With fingers that speak love to me  
As we shake uncontrollably.  
 
And then his mouth begins to twitch  
To hear it start to say to me  
In boyish tones that make me itch,  
"Hi Jadey...", he says valiantly.  
 
Our feet will mash potatoes as  
We blush and carry on which has  
Our little dance as we connect  
The anticipated effect.  
 
From ‘puter screens of quiet light  
Into a mounting hope between.  
Our fervent thoughts, a jubilee  
Of celebrating hearts in flight!  
 
The walk from bus to motorcar  
To reach and hold each other tight  
From cyber places we have been  
Like where we’re almost always in.  
 
For everything of love we did  
And still turn into timid kids.  
You mean tongue-tied?  I couldn’t say.  
Cause we won’t know until that day.

I love you is best said..

I love you is best said ...

The first time
The time after that
To the one that matters most
With every ounce of emotion
Sober maybe drunk
Whispered softly in the ear
Yelled at the top of your lungs
Whenever its time to go
After some corny jokes
Broken between kissing lips
Before during and after sex
When tears are flowing
When smiles are showing
Sunrise and sundown
Written in the sky
Drawn into the ground
Sound asleep or by the beach
Holding hands or cuddled in bed
On a notebook scribbled in pen
When it makes you feel alive
Even at the same time
Any moment you feel its right
Because I love you is best said not held inside

So go tell that person again or even if you haven't
Just mean it...because that's when I love you
Is best said.

I wonder

Tell me, what song are you listening to?

Is it the one I use to sing with you?

A love song reflecting me and you

Maybe “I miss you” or “Dark Blue”



Are you looking at the sky tonight?

Doesn’t it remind you of that night?

Laying in the park your hand in mine

Full moon and a billion tiny lights



Did something remind you of me today?

I swear it happens almost everyday

I got poked in the eye and yelled your name

Muttered sorry walking away in more than just pain



Do thoughts of us still run through your head?

Hypocritical but I hope your not cutting again

Remember when family problems were easily solved

We would pick up the phone, give each other a call



Is it cold at night in your bed to?

Do you wake waiting to see my face beside you?

Look at your phone for good morning I love you?

I know I do



Most of all do you still love me?

Or need me like you told me

Because I know I still need you

And will always love you more times two

Soul caressing

 
Now the time to gather our stones has come
The flowing nights that two souls will swim
We have pitched into the lovely dark waters
An ethereal write, our words can now begin...

Then by harvest trip into her consciousness
And the tunnel journey across her stargate
She lights the spiritual burning of my blood
But my symptom never wishing to shake...

The oblate sphere spins round her nature
With seraphic thought of her sweetest dew
By fate and furies we were brought together
As our ancient shrine now burns renewed...

My solar logos to her moonshine reflection
The move two in-phase as we jump in time
Her lunar rising to my setting sun dreaming
We float an embracing space and never mind...

The Eternal Dance.

Tangents fly from the fancy dress
As the two headless figures dance
Juxtaposing one another's existence

One tall, black suit, no arms, no heart
Leading one step, following the next
Shadowing, preceding and contradicting himself

The other, smaller, white dress, exposed legs and hands
Following every step in his complex dance
Not questioning, not fearing, but certainly not winning

He, is losing control, his steps become unsteady
Almost fallen, stood up.
It's headless form swings around it's counterpart.

She, misses the slip and continues to follow.
The mist around him hid it.
But she often trips herself and so sees it the norm.

These two headless figures lock in dance.
Hiding their faults, follow the others lead
Stuck in timeless eternity
