Poetry Contest

An endless dreamscape of dark...
[Invalid Image - URL must end with jpeg, jpg, gif, png or bmp]


When the demons take over, which side emerges victorious? Write about the battles you have endured, writhing on the hook of the darkest demon. Does the struggle still rage inside? Can the light emerge victorious?..

Write from either the dark or the light side, your choice. However, the structure has to be three lines, six words per line.



Example:

This demon I embrace within its
realm. It swoops down and sinks
its venomed fangs into my flesh.

SIX words per line, 3 lines total.




This is an endless competition, so languish here, escape if you can... from the eternal darkness.

Black termites devour every angel cell
within my core. Relics of mud
catacombs hold this hollow man together.

Blazes crackle through her coiled tendons
as she twists around, slashing into
twisted tentacles. The slime releases her.




Thanks, Case for kicking this off.  :)

cephalopod mollusc; muscles ripped with brain
self healing, anabolic killer, armed anaconda
constricting breath, smothered within her embrace

cable tight tension bolted in her
core; she roars her warrior rage
as the ice cold grips her

quartered across the field by four
black steeds, limbs torn from joints
screaming tenons and bone, sheered silent

life thrown out from her body
her corpse mangled, in several pieces
her soul detonates beyond this plane

The dark tentacles dripping in slime
grasp the corners of her mind
tottering blasphemy of fragments into silt

vultures dance auras in moonlit skies
death seeking maggots fly blown hell
blood soaked earth beacons scavenger prey

Rising beyond the physical plane, and
pain, her soul soars, finding light
and life among those gone before

Munchausen syndrome by proxy supplants love
My seed weeping and quacking unmercifully 
Just like her with my coming

Blackened hollowed eyes birth crimson pearls
Second coming vespers subverted by vacillation 
And the fact I never left

agathokakological twins strangled pulsing umbilical chords 
now suckle at the same breast 
hoping to starve their diluted reflection

fallen angels of light and shade
plummet from orbit, scream for mercy
as feathered wings melt, rocket reentry

poet Anonymous

Why does everything have to fall?
Is the day to be feared?
Come dance in the light again
