Poetry Contest

In exactly 50 words tell me a secret or talk about one being kept.
Fifty words. No more no less. On anything you like. Except, this is a challenge, so give me a secret.

You can make it your own secret, or a story about secrets, or the distilled essence of secret. You can tell me the secret nature of secrets, or about the secret scent of your love, or the secret hurt at the center of you that he unlocks and heals every time he screams.

But do it in fifty words.

No more. No less.      

One entry....



Here is an example.  

"I'm afraid"


I'm afraid...

If I close my eyes..... I might forget your face.

If I fall asleep I might want to stay there.

Blissfully unaware of your mortality, and that
Secret you like to keep.

about how you're already gone. ...

Before having the chance to walk in this dream of mine.

I Knew


The moment I read your message
I knew you wanted to say goodbye

You changed your mind when I told you
I was performing that night

Instead, you loved me
Held me tenderly in your arms

In those moments I loved you deeply
Knowing you wanted this to be goodbye

title: City Love

in bed alone
i remember him

once i hired a man
he came to me adorned
muscles and pretty

i was a queen came to
by a man city-crowned

he let me be...
let my lovely iowa tears fall upon his hair

in the morning
i dressed and flew home

Title: Secret Hearts

Broken heart sick with lies.
Dark deception fills my eyes.

You lay me down and love me so,
Run your fingers through my hair,
Touch my tender swollen breasts.

Your kiss,
Your gaze,
Your touch so bold...

I long for you but go back to him.

Secret hearts torn apart.

I know you're my cousin but how I lust to be intimate with you. Seldom a day goes by when I don't pleasure myself over the thought of you on your knees performing oral pleasures. And that body that I long to feel against mine. An ass ide love to taste.

I killed a man in cold blood then tied
His body to a flagpole
He was a mean motherfucker so I have no conscience if truth be told

It's not like I'm a psychotic killer
I felt like I was doing society a favor
No need for thanks, your welcome!

Moment

Its funny
It never occurred to me till yesterday

I screamed in pleasure
I screamed too in pain

I wanted you inside me
I still screamed no

You didnt take the time
to ready me for that particular thing

You raped me
but I never knew

In the first year of our love
I loved my ex and called her
Name during sex thank God your name
Was the same
In the ninth year
of our love you grew me in
Our garden of flings and pawned diamond rings
your devotion to children
the little things
