Breath Of Life


Horror climbs 
avenging bullets
& patchwork skirts

human shield
of loves cost
brought to breath





Cradle Of Love


Angels comb 
cradled
metal jackets
driven with hail
serpentine 
She Is Love
in a gun-sight.

Cross 
the divide 
Her eyes
penetrate 
every reason 
for life 
inside

Bravery Rage Eruption

Blood moon tears,
Kissed raged of tempest,
Consuming fire,
Bravery parity,
Gasp, ..her last breath …. insanely,
Heaven’s Angel, ...evolved salvage warrior,
Redeemed by a tumble

Maria In the Dark

In the dark
- deceiving light absent -
her true colours...

In the dark
her warm, reassuring tongue...

In the dark
finger under pillow
patiently caressing trigger...

Freeedom

It's a bad day
today
but the feeling
agrees
with belief
that today
is the day
we take back
what they
try to take
away

Human Rights

Shitting her self
in fear
refusing
to back away
anger
holds her upright
even when
fate decrees
you be dead

Today

Hullo and thank you all for your patience. I wanted to thank you individually first:



John Brady

outside the box which is kinda in the spirit of the comp on some level.  I believe if she could have fired milk bullets the headlines would be still screaming in between the movie and sequels. hope that helps. cheers man  

AEMelia

an intriguing entry.  way I interpreted it, narrator showed strength and, in fairness a slightly more sinister edge to her aswell.  could be way off though. either way, I liked your take on the prompts. thanks much and well done


Asperger's poet

liked your thinking on this. when thought about in context of bigger picture, it's profound and deep.  very good stuff, man. much appreciated

Black wolf

another decent left of box entry. I liked the lyrical-esque feel to it. cheers, man. much appreciated

Boy brains

loved how you let the image and quote guide your imaginings, subsequently the entries and non entries you posted. favourite was 'she was a gun' thanks most much  man

Butters

found this to be a fabulous entry. good stuff, lady. to be perfectly honest if you'd used the word 'woman' rather than queen I'd have probably awarded it the trophy

(nit-picky I know but when left with a handful of a short list to pick from nits must be picked)

Carpe Noctem

loved your entry too, man. and much thanks for it. n the spirit of said nit-picking above I felt it fell a little short of the pic and quote prompts.  that said, it didn't fall short in content

Cloven tongue

of the two (which were both well written) I preferred The end of conflict. I think a lot more strength is needed to end conflict rather than continue it. so well done there, man


Drone

nice and simple, liked it a lot, good stuff, well done much appreciated


Indie

I liked yours a lot too, there's a lot in it. liked the title too in fairness. good stuff there, and thanks for your submission. mucho apppreciatio



Inechoingsilence

very well written, lady. "leather armour, polka dot gown" has a great ring to it. great to see you here lady, thanks muchley for your entry

Jade Pandora

another fantastic poem, with unique form added. many thanks for your entry, lady


Kinkpoet

Liked your take on it. kinda tragic  which fits rather nicely, so well done there. thanks for your entry, good person

LoboSanPedro

absolutely loved your one the first way you had it. that's not to say the edit isn't worthy of acalade. appreciate what you put into it, thanks much for entering


Madame Lavander

your one kinda stood out because it came from personal experience. I'll come back to that in a bit. thanks most much for your entry

Missy

I mean the title alone is quite something. I like the way you ran with it, good stuff, and thanks a lot for your entry

Poetic strength

another very good take on the subject, good stuff, lady. much enjoyed. and thanks much for your entry  

Snugglebuck

talking of takes. really good thinking there, good fellow. loved your entry [on a side note, not sure NATO would have survived if US didn't pull out, p'raps that was a factor] anyhow, thanks for taking the ride with us, and for driving a superb car

Slip along

I thought yours was brilliance. nuff said, 'cept thanks much for your entry  

Souldareatease

my friend, I found both your entries to be on par with excellence. you wizard, haha :)~  mucho thank yo's for them

Takis1917

an interesting take, warrants some thought, then some more. enjoyed much, thank you for your entry

the5thRiddler

again, an entry which warrants some thought. I'm very pleased with the diversity of thoughts on this thread. I enjoyed yours, Ricky. and thanks for your entry

Underweller

nicely written. I think it could easily be the words inscribed on some plaque where a battle occured. thanks much for your entry



Viddax (lord)  

you are very much to the point with yours. and you're right of course. enjoyed. thanks much for your entry



I gave 1st to Suminaltra beause i found her words to ooze the most strength.

a very close second was Madame lavander

Slipalong  3rd though again it was very close with Takis


Thank you all for your entries, I hope I didn't miss anyone when thanking.

you're all beautiful people. I love you
