Poetry Contest

Write a Poem with a hidden message with in the poem.
Just as you read above.

Eg.

[center]Don't stay
Go away,
and pick her,
What do you want her for?

Don't come back,
You should've said that
you didn't care,
I was with you,
willingly,
not because of some stupid
dare.

She was,
just for a night.
Yet because she's
bodaciously,
delicious,
You leave by the sight.

As I am,
The love I have,
She won't be.
But go,
I give you my best wishes,
just don't return,
forlorn,
looking for me.



It doesn't have to be a word. It could be phrases of 3 words or single letters.

The piece that is written has to be the total opposite of what the hidden message implies, as you see above.

Rules:

No Colabs
Just 6 stanaz
Please title your work. (make it presentable and add pic if needed)
2 entries per poet
Any genre

Editted:

High light them or italize the hidden msg so i can see it.


Have Fun

When he leaves,
He'll say goodbye.
He never comes back.
I'll never hurt,
And he'll never cry.
He says he loves me again,
And come barging back in.
My life and love and happiness,
Just walked back through the door.

Wishes and Switches

I wish I could Erase
all the pain of
the many Yesterdays
and unfulfilled Promises
I vowed to do
And I wish I could Return
but here I am alone
picking Purple flowers
cold without my Robes
stringing flowers
that Are dying
on words that were once
Yours.

Can't stand the bitch

Her voice does nothing but jeer
a crass belittler, she'll sit there
and take my skin from it's flesh with a sentence

she'll offer some quick relief
then raze my dignity with an ease
far too honed for her years

kindness, she says, is a weakness that's lame
but even that's [i]q[/i]uite tame in comparison
to what she says about love

men, women alike breathe her in
then try hard to exhale the choking toxins
left as a reminder after she breaks them
but they never get to fully purge the poison
and it drives them crazyin the end      

yep, I tell you she's bad one
best to steer clear for your own sanity
I know I am  




ok fingers, the key is at the top  a=g b=h c=i d=j etc, the message isn't very original but if you want it, you'll have to work for it

Alright Steve, I'm not sure how hard you want me to make it, so I'll jumble the sequence up and tell you the word count and some letter counts first. then I'll put the proper sequence in smaller letters and colour them bright yellow so you don't have to see them unless you want to  

o'kjoaqk zr huazliqtm nkh xoxo tuyg  

word count is eight, first word has two letters, so has the third and the eight has three

..or [size=1]o'j roqk zu hk laiqotm nkx hxgoty uaz
 

may the force be with you, I used to try do crossword puzzles like that, where you'd get one word in the puzzle filled in. maybe five or six letters with their corresponding numbers and that was all you got.[/size]

Dammit Lep it don't take a decoder ring to figure that one, but I'd like to try. Can you do it in bold or red instead of italics? It's hard to make out which is which if you only do single letters.
