Bullets In The Soul

White soul dipped in crimson
Bleeding out
Its as if the soul heard the word escape
Quicker the heart pounds
Sending crimson drops to splash the floor
Wings start to stretch
Longing to fly...
Fly away from the cage
Warriors soul is battered...
  † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †Torn...
The fight still beats,---
Faintly
Picking at the bars
Lacing painful tears with courage,
So they dry faster
Praying to a God...
that leaves a faint hint of,--
doubt upon my tounge
All I wish for is a heaven...
A heaven accommodating enough for me.

Miss Sub :

What shall I say , other than between your written , and spoken words

you have again rent the veil between the human dilemma and passion

of the soul , and united them in scripted symbol , and visual voice ;

Very well done !

Thank you for that submission...no coffee yet in me , but that helped awaken my mind !

So we are rockin' !

Less than three weeks to go , some incredible entries...please keep them coming !

I have two of the three other judges lined up...I feel very confident in their abilities ;

I now need one old timer here , with a feminine bend on poetic reality , and expertise...;)

Namaste

These words bear the weight of a thousand emotions
Expression of thought
Embedded within my mind's mechanisms
The complexity of how I think,
Is something I can't comprehend
But I find myself dumbfounded
When the paper touches pen
The words I can't ever find to say
Just pop up in my head
As if I wrote this yesterday
The brain is an instrument
For consciousness to express
This pen is my outlet
For words to manifest
This paper is my temple,
Where I meditate
I am the Buddha,
In a tranquil state
This is the place where I find peace
Awake, enlightened and darkness deceased
I transfer my energies
Into this poem
As a gift of merit
Wherever you may roam

This work started out as Geoff posting his part as a separate publishing. †When I saw it, I responded in a comment with my "answers" which just came naturally. Geoff sent me the thread as a combined piece and we both realized - our first collaboration! (before any other collab we've done since, which is yet to be published/posted) † † † † † † † †

Golden quill

From goose It comes and brings with it
the gift of pros with feather touch
my bard scratch out some thoughts
pen knife †to sharpen nibs end results
 
the laureate touch the diamond phrase
the quoted quote upon the page
a quill of gold to dip in ink
from flesh to Fletch to make me think
 
my muse to write a scroll on my soul
she the quill to dip, she the ink
golden poems from my mind will flow
an empty page so here we go !

You need another judge?  I fit at least two of your three criteria--I may not be a full fledged expert, but I'm old and I'm female......
