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!

Our Cosmic Union

As the day settles down to rest,
we also return to our little nest
Our cozy little love universe
where we always come in reverse
finding peace in each other's embrace
as we halt our every day's race
 our lips meet in commune
the racy desires in tune,
within the warm walls of our arms
we churn up our private storms
into the volcanoes of desires
boredom quietly retires
as we get into our cosmic union
everything else turns into an illusion
all that's really true
I am in love with you.

Let me

Let me be your scribe
 How I vow to caress every page in your novel and drown in your story
Let me carry your words onto Papyrus, flattering and gentle on the eyes
Speak the words my queen, yes! Speak them aloud, the ones that demand my innermost attention
Let me devour your thoughts
and let these eyes observe your nightly rituals, in the hopes that I may one day hold the ink that falls from your pen

A Good Book

No matter how hard I try
there’s always nights of
which can never be said
is slept without having
raised from a most
comfortable bed
searching for something
to help me sleep
when mother said
“it’s all in your head!”
so I tried just that
even went to
the library
and read
and read
cus a good book will do that
help me relax
so there every day
I’d find a corner and sat
going through
stories of castles and queens
of lost children and giants
even scary dreams
now I know what to do
when I can’t find my sleep
I’ll get a good book
and have a nice seat


Moral: reading inspires

Reaction

Vessels constricting
Atomic adulation
Constructing the one thing
Oxytocin abomination
Helping too often
Transforming the transparent
Clarity clarity
Creating the thoughts of errant
Nature is calling
Shortcomings are longing
Lingering
Coherently
5 seconds till the respawning
Passive and passion
And poison and panic
And purity and posterity
Picturing the perfect planet

The relevant fear

The piercing stench of sulfur and death tears through my nostrils
Angels of retribution spread disaster as told by many apostles
My flesh melts but leaves not the bone like skin encasing the sun
legions of demons surround me leaving nowhere to run

I pray to be lifeless not realising I hold no breath
The weight of my sins within so strong they deform my chest
An unending thirst for mercy develops that can never be quenched
my transgressions pile onto my spirit an I am now entrenched

I have become eternally comfortless as my book of life sealed
I could have changed my lifestyle but to late I have been killed

This scenario alone I fear phobically and so I attempt to humbly
ask for forgiveness daily to protect my soul spiritually
