Poetry Contest

Share romantic poems.
Romance: a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.

Poems will get thorough reviews of multiple sentences that will explain good features as well as subjective areas of improvement.

If you want to receive your review, then put your poem webpage's full url link or (just the 6 digits that are within that url) at the bottom of your posts.

You are allowed to submit a poem that you've written before; regardless of whether or not I've commented on it, or whether or not it's been in my previous romance contest.

You can submit a maximum of 3 poems. Don't edit your posts, after the contest has closed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send me a private message.

Here's some inspiration:

tmoj said:The Mermaid

Across a sea of people
I get a view of a girl
Being caressed by the sun
The brightest sparkle in the sea
Dancing with the waves

Singing like birds in the morning
Next to a wind chime, on a porch
Like a calm voice after a storm
And a body like a river that quenches my thirst

She is very talented
Full of pulchritude and wisdom
Angels guard her heart
Her appearance is a gust of wind

The opening of her eyes are the break of dawn
From the time she wakes up 'til she goes to bed
She is endlessly beautiful
Like sunrise to sunset


Jade-Pandora said:Feral

He told of how he'd found her when
a comet streaked by overhead,
While later, people asked where she had gone.  

Listing distantly, replied
with heaven drifting from his eyes -

She's with me now, a patch of blue,
trusting where she takes me to
from a world not meant for us.

I'm by her side, and on the run.
We stop and rest when evening comes,

to love her 'neath the stars
when day is done, my feral one.

And when the comet comes,
she'll leave that day, and here I'll lay

where I'll love her 'neath the stars
when day is done, my feral one.




GothicQueen666 said:Tomorrow Comes, Tomorrow Goes
Tomorrow comes, tomorrow goes.
I'm still waiting
On my toes.
Holding every breath,
Not thinking twice.
Time goes so slow
It never flies.
I'm still waiting
To hold you again.
I pray it will happen
But I don't know when.
You're so far away from me.
I hear your voice
Inside my head
But your face
I cannot see.
I'm holding on
with all I've got.
My body' growing weak,
But my heart is not.
I cry myself to sleep
Wondering where you are.
I wonder if
you're wondering about me
Looking at the same bright star.
Heaven knows
We are meant to be.
No one else
Will ever complete me.
You are my heart
My soul
And everything in between.
I know I can't
See the future
But I wish
This could be seen.
I would look to see
How our children would grow
And how we look
When we're old
Moving so slow.
I would laugh
At how in love
We still are.
The boat you drive
Yet call a car.
But I can't
See the future.
Deep down I wonder
If you'll ever come back.
I hate myself
For thinking it
But sometimes,
My heart is black.
The only thing
I ever wanted
Is you.
Its funny that
You're the only thing
I can't hold onto.
I watch you slide
From outside my grip.
I cry inside,
My whole world
Starts to slip.
I know I'll make it
I'll be okay.
One more day
Without you
Whats another day?
I will still wait
I know you'll come back.
I won't let myself
Doubt it
I won't let myself
Crack.
Tomorrow comes, tomorrow goes.
I'm still waiting
Here on my toes.
Holding every breath,
Not thinking twice.
Time goes so slow,
It never flies.

The Romantic Life

I'm all in for the romantic life,
I don't know of any other way.
Such a simple statement to be made,
so please allow me to explain.
My soul is buoyed by the romantic life,
to see beauty in life's wide breadth.
I'll find hope in the little things,
bulwark against life's sharp barbs.

Some say romantic ideas are fanciful,
impractical in this age of hard love.
Unrealistic is another harsh phrase
the cynics choose to banter around.
I'll differ with these unkind words,
and instead look to life affirmed.
Romance offers the path to love,
redemption of the human kind.

The two may not be the same,
love and romance can be separate,
but on the most fortunate days
they will mirror each other.
Love is raised in appreciation,
extended in passion to life's embrace.
Widespread affection is my path
to romance's arms where I'll dwell.

To court with life will be my end.
Loving beauty in romantic ways,
seeking solace in the darkest days,
I'll hope to find you in that place.
We'll dance to romance's tune,
held close in shared rejoicing.
Connection found in harmony,
romance defined by you and me.

Obsessed Over You

Like the venom,
which never kills its snake,
Your love is like the oldest wine,
which is impossible to make,
Your voice is like the Hamlin's pied piper,
which makes me desperate,
Like Krishna's flute,
which even God cannot fake.

So far away

So far away
the beaches which you walk
Yet so close      
always in my heart
So far away
I cannot touch your hand
I cannot feel your hand
I cannot hold you close
Yet so close
I can feel you in my heart
I can see you in my mind
I can hear you in my ears
You can go so far away
You can travel to the ends of the earth
But as long as I have your love
As long as I have you
You will always be close
For
As sure as the sun rises
And the tides will change
I will always love you
And you will always be close to my heart

You're forever here
I never leave your mind
I'm forever yours
And your always mine
You make me happy
And I make you glad
There is no way
I will ever
Leave your side
For I love you
And you love me
We are the two
Love birds that
Every one can see

Time's Defier

Time mopes and sulks, disconsolate, in his lair -
Try as he might, things just aren’t going his way.
“It shouldn’t be like this, it isn’t fair,”
He grumbles, hour by hour, day after day.
“I run the world, I bend it to my will,
If I say ‘Fall!’ things fall, if ‘Cease!’ they cease.
I freeze the seas, I lengthen winter’s chill,
I set the lengths of wars, the dates of peace.
So why does she defy my mighty power
By staying beautiful, year after year?
Her loveliness continues yet to flower;
I chide her, but she doesn’t seem to hear.”

And who is this who makes Time so irate?
Why, who else could it be? My lovely Kate.

First Aid

With my love
I tried to bind the finger of your indifference
And stem the flow of your loneliness.

You can make my heart skip some beats
And that’s hard when I’m a drummer
Keeping time in mind I repeat
Losing focus is a bummer

When you glance I lose the rhythm
Not that I had much from the start
But it does something odd to me
Me thinks it syncs in with your heart

I know you may not believe me
But the things you say pull me in
Even with your slight peek or glint
I lose the pulse and so I grin

I think of it as a cadence
That measures the feeling I feel
It goes off track in your presence
Because of your lovely appeal

I can sense the fluctuations
Especially when you are near
A pattern of expectations
The pulsing dance kicks to high gear

And I mutter and I stutter
Then my heart flutters and quivers
The commotion when you‘re close by
A high like nothing else delivers

Then there’s that stare just between us
The connection raises the heat
I melt away into the groove
The way you move into that beat

I think I know what you’re thinking
A slight inkling of what you’ll do
But then the tempo picks back up
I’m just simply smitten by you

That action movie that ends to fast
That lottery ticket as you scratch it
That surprise party u thought you knew about
The smell of that new perfume you used for the 1st time
The peak of a warm day right after winter
The feeling when your waiting on a package in the mail
dad at the end of the table waiting on his baby being delivered
When your lover calls you beautiful after a bad day
when your kid calls you mommy for the 1st time
5am in the fall when the sun is rising and u feel a breeze
flowers on your desk for all your friends to see
When they remember something unexpectedly
Put all these feelings together and that's romance you see
