Poetry Contest

one title and one sentence
Write about an extremely dramatic moment
But sum it down to one sentence
And one sentence only
Give it a title
And make sure the title is bold
Only one entry per person
You can break your sentence into more then one stanza
But it still has to be only one sentence.
I'd prefer new entries but you can use old poems if you'd like.


Examples:

Title
With words written like this.

Title
Or with words
Written like this.

Title
Each
Line
Can
Be
One
Word
Too.

"title"

A sentence
isn't near enough
to inject substance
manipulate sound,
sight,
function and form
into a write
thats more than
assembled letters,

unless of course
it is

- Honeyed Pleasures -

Oh, for the maddest mead of honeyed pleasures,
      that only the bliss of love’s kiss can bestow…
and which is greatest of all Aphrodite’s treasures,
      warming both the heart and the regions below;
passing from pleasure unto ecstasy, and so thence,
      love can become the portal to transcendence!

Wonderland

Your lips feel so great,
they waste me away.

Monster .  
 
   
   
You    
you shiver    
my mind;    
quiver      
my intellect,    
and    
tremor my      
imagination    
   
you do it -    
you, do it      
so well    
   
With-just-one-word

Defenseless

We
Are
Defenceless
Without
The armour
That
Love
Gives us.
We are defenceless
As ourselves
We
Are alone
Without
Our masks
We are...
Our culture
Our experiences
Of let downs
Heart Break
And bravery
Without this
There is no
Us
We
Are
Defenseless

insanity:

Falling into insanity
that is so far down
but as the bottom comes nearer
I hit without a sound.

The Lake

and the lake is so good this time of year,couple of beers and a few
spliffs for later on when the 'what if' conversations bring more light to the advancement of a new world order and we'll all shoulder some of the fight,after all what's right is right and if any fight was the good one..well if nothing else it's a bit of fun painting pictures where everyone gets culled except the few,the ones who think they own us.

Shortness
creates
duress,
I guess great
length is no
less comforting.

                     < beer bottles >

As we came in to work last week we found the floor of our office
(all 17 cubicles of it) so covered in empty beer bottles that
we could barely see our ugly carpeting and none of us could
figure out how, who, or when someone could have done this
since it's supposed to be a secure web-server area and now,
even a week later, the office still smells like beer (some
of the bottles weren't really that empty) so, of course, all
this week I've been thinking of you and I looked you up on the
web and I was surprised cause there you were (and if this is
not you, well, sorry) so I just had to write and ask you how
things were going, as for me I turned out exactly as you said:
"a nerd doing boring computer stuff and liking it" but I just
LOVED the way you smiled when you said that and hope you don't
think too badly of me cause all it seems I ever did was buy you
beer and get you drunk and try to fuck you but at least I took
out ten times as many beer bottles as I brought in and now this
last week I've gotten all mushy thinking about you and how great
a time I had so I just had to write and see how you were doing
and that wasn't you who put all those beer bottles in our office
was it?

Sinking Like Atlantis

Fear not, for the nectar that embraces me
shall never hinder your being my grand portal,
my faithful Sancho Panza,
my Camelot’s Guinevere ,
my forbidden 8th Shangri-La……but wait,
where are you going with your pants pulled up and tightly buttoned….flee from me not celestial nymph of Nysa!

GONE FISHING

Pa took me to the river to fish
all the time when I was five
but on my sixth birthday
he was at the liquor mart buying bait
when he was shot in the head and killed;
I haven't celebrated my birthday in twelve years;
instead I go down to the river and fish;
I think about pa;
I think about him;
and wish I was five again.
