Poetry Contest

New Member of the Month Feature

Welcome to "New Member of the Month"!

You have 3 weeks to nominate  Your favorite poems from a NEW DUP poet - someone who has been a member for no more than six months.

To locate New Members simply click on 'Poems' > *Latest Poems > Sort Poems > New Members!  

Please note the following guidelines when making nominations:

1. Self nominations are not accepted. The great majority of the competitions here are about spotlighting one's own work on a particular topic or theme.  This is a chance to nominate that poem that you wish you had written but some other great talent here beat you to it.

2. Until this comp is established, there is no limit to nominations; however, you can't nominate more than one poem per individual new member.  *****

3. No DUPLICATES. If someone nominates the same poem the entry will be deleted. If you like it that much wait and vote for it!

4. Any genre except erotica or pornography. This is a Facebook feature and we must adhere to their guidelines.  

5. Any member who is banned or disables their account PRIOR to the win will be automatically disqualified.

6. One win per member per calendar year ( 12 months ).

7. All nominators should notify their nominees of nominations.

8.  PLEASE DON’T NOMINATE RECENT WINNERS ( see list below )

Any nominated member who wishes to opt out of the competition may do so by messaging me. I will contact the person who nominated you and request an alternate nomination.

Nomination Duration is 3 weeks followed by a week of site voting!

Faceless

Lying here on
the sand again.
Dark all around  
but I can hear the water    
crashing down.  
I'm no longer an ocean wave.  
No more push or pull.  
   
Trying hard to remember  
everything I forgot.  
But just like the moon    
you're faceless now.  
   
Never thought you'd fade.  
So glad you stayed    
away from me.  
No longer a memory.  
Your power dissolved so fast.    
Like a shooting star    
about to blast.  
   
Trying hard to remember  
everything I forgot  
but just like the moon  
you're faceless now.  
   
Time to get off this  
sand and take my  
ass back home.  
You see, I  met someone new.  
He's the opposite of you.  
You're the moon,    
he's the sun.  
   
Love when my baby  shines on me.  
I know I won't get burned.  
Love when my baby shines on me  
Cause this time I finally learned.  
   
Trying hard to remember  
everything I forgot.  
But just like the moon  
your faceless now.  
   
Love when my baby  shines on me.  
I know I won't get burned.  
Love when my baby shines on me  
Cause this time I finally learned.

I would say

I would say: Don't be afraid.
But if you are, there's no need to be ashamed.

I would say: Hide if you don't want to be found.
But don't hide too long cause in the blink of an eye that dark corner that gave you comfort will swallow you whole.

I would say: Jump of that cliff but only cause you feel alive, not because you're too low.

I would say: get drunk or get high.
But stop the day you start to ask yourself why.

I would say: fight instead of flight.
But trust your instinct when it tells you to go.

I would say: love as much as you can.
But not at the cost that someone has you in their control.

I would say: Don't be so shy.
It's ok to talk about the days you'd rather die.

But my friend, what I truly want to say: Don't run away from me when I'm trying to make you see, that I will never sugarcoat and bad shit can happen in one, two, three.

Please don't fear, cause I don't want to see the life in you disappear

I stopped to notice

Pleasure came to me today:
A morning walk to school,
A meaningful talk,
That silly thought and giggle
From a five year old boy,
A neighbor’s shy pup
Snuggling against me
Through a friendly conversation,
An anxiety lightened,
A long strong hug,
After-school chatter—it was a good day,
Childish outdoor play—
Such creative creations!
Pleasure poured in measured moments
popping in
between the hum-drum marching minutes of life.
Pleasure waits
Today I recognized its friendly
Peek-a-boo game
And played along

Fall


That part.

That part to be taken away
On this most wondrous journey,
Drawn in terrifying shades
That capture the vividness,

As this cathedral cracks open
In window forms of broken
Light, breaking free in neon
Opulence, as a glow -

gone

radiance.

Madness mostly expands
In statuesque,

Standing still, to appear
to be healed.

That part.

Awakens something
that stirred
in
signaled

Vacancies,

Signaling

Vacantly,

In structures
Of moons breaking bad
In
Wavelength forms

Into

The senses,
Condensed
In formulations
of

Recompense.

That part.

Speaking sweetly
Serenely -

Deeply,

Like depths
of
Tears

That step
through
fears

In

Edges of ledges

To

Let fall

That

which

will

Fall
