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

Please send me a private message with any questions.

Here's some inspiration from last competition:

KublaiSwan said:Lemonie 1


Shall we gaze upon your star
Whose twinkle luminates so far?
Shall we walk beside our ocean?
Long and far from Man's commotion
Suffer we to remain us here
Eternal company brings good cheer!
I gaze into your eye and feel
Warm & bold & full of zeal
What powers you possess, my love
Focused trial's perfect dove
If none of us be from above
Alas! I perish with words of Love.



Oceanicwords said:Young love


Eyes meet
Hearts pound
Mouths plead
No sounds
Hands touch
My trust
Your lust
Our love


Astyanax said: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.

kairos ~


the pendulum stills
[&]
i've slowed too
to watch two
chronological moments
synchronise
in temporal relation ~
this karmic alignment
... so often askew
when our circadian rhythms
forget the ticking tempo
which marked realisation...
meets like a timeless eclipse
*
i hold a ceaseless breath
in this paused hourglass trickle
of thoughts & never pretend
to understand ~
... the flow
of time & space
& the passing of days
which beg
another leap second
spent with you ...

this is not a love poem ~

it's as though you stole the moon
from my sky, to keep it
eternally burning in yours
leaving me in shadows
thick and tangible as
an oil slick coating the heavens

and it seems the stars followed
the path of your hands, unable
to withstand your magnetism
and fell to your feet, basking
in the light that once drew me,
a light that could make the sun
shrink from its brilliance

though i tremble with fear
on nights without a glow,
my fingers want to tug
the horizon, keep it in place
so first blush cannot cut
through the velvety darkness
that reminds me of you

One was the path that laid to have fun,
two people met like they were meant to
3 minutes later their love seeds built a tree
Five seconds ago feelings would want to thrive
Four with seedlings of two for a tour.
6 wasn't just the number in the girl's disc
Seven years younger was perfection from heaven
9 times he dreamt with her to be fine
Eight times his heart drummed love, it wasn't late.

Baby come home

Baby come home where you belong.

I need you close, because your heart beats my favorite song.

I love the scent of your smell.

Its like flowers or roses when they bloom.

Baby every since I laid eyes on you, you been the one for me.

I know over the months that we had together has been crazy.

Lets come together and make this right baby.

You being in my presence is like an Angel in front of me

bad or good you act towards me, but at the end of the day you is the only female i see.

I want us to build a foundation and I promise that I will do anything to keep it together.

When we hold each other, argue or get into a heat discussion I just want to give myself to you and make love to you.

Every time I see you, I get excited like I made an good grade to pass the class.

When the days come for me to see you, I be rushing the hour and the time. I just love being around you don't you understand?

yes we have our days, but God, me and you can make a way.

there are days that i just want to be on the phone with you for hours so i can hear your lovely voice.  

there are times that i just want to text you, i feel good when you do it back, because it makes me feel special.  

i want our love to be on the next level.

we put each other through hell over the twelve months and some days.

i did wrong and you did wrong, we is not perfect we all make mistakes.

sometimes when you turn away i just want you to come.

i just don't want to get to the part when we say we are done.

lately, you have been closed heart to me and we have not been able to get along

baby lets work this out, cut the chaos and come home.

i know what you have done to me, i am not going to fault you for nun of that.

the love that you had for me got lost, but i am giving you mines can i have your heart back.

i know that you are probably scared or having mixed feelings, but i belong to you and your heart belongs to me as well.

on a bended knee, with an open heart and open arms i need you to come home where your heart belongs.

i have a big heart and i am willing to let you back in.

i just need you to come home, because that where it all begins.

so baby please come home.

The miles and the dedication

I go the extra mile to show that i care.

Sometimes i feel that the love from THE opposite side goes bare.

When problems arose like grass when there is rain.

I keep walking forward, because i don't want to go through the problems in my past again.

I'm steady going through the absent of my heart, because two months ago the love i thought that i had was torn apart.

The shameful of the broken promises eats me up til the point i just want to give up.

But seeing her standing there hopeful and hungry for my love makes me wanna take it all in and man up.

I'm hungry for her love, I'm thirsty for her attention and I'm greedy for the TLC. At times when she dedicate her time with someone else, I just fall back and see is this where she want to be.

All the females that was in the past and present turned their backs on the one that was going to stay no matter how many times the person screw up.

Lately i noticed that i don't never get the satisfaction and the full TLC as i should.

Its not about sex, but to me LOVE is like sex, because we are connecting our emotions, mentality and we show each other that we love one another.

People can have sex all day long, plus say that i love you, BUT if they don't connect in all levels its just a friend with sexual benefits.

I go a hundred miles a day for her, every time i search, i look for her love.

Every time i walk up i look for her touch or a hug with the softest kiss from her lips.

Every time i go somewhere for a purchase, i always think about her and what will she like.

I rather deal with the bad and the good of a person, love a female unconditionally, get to know everything about her rather than smash and pass, I'm in love with her so I'm going to make it last.

I write her name in the sky so i can let God know who i love.

When my back was turned i was crossed up, but i looked at how much i was needed, so i stayed.

I love her to the point that I will forgive her wondering soul and heart.

I love her heart, i am thirsty to be apart of it.

I'm greedy for her soul, I'm clingy to her body, I'm there for her needs and wants.

When i look at her FACE, she Deserve the truth like any other human being, but SOME love the lie hide and run from the truth.

I always tried to do something amazing for her so she can always enjoy me and never get bored of me.

I want my love and the sound of my voice WAKE her up from bad dreams and doing terrible things.

I want her lips to be on mines every day like it should, because she is apart of me

I give her my everything until i don't have nothing left.

I see when she is trying, but friends crisis always gets in the way.

I want more love from her, but she stopped by WHAT she done and what HAD occurred.

I CRY so when I'm all over her and she is not all over me.

To BE honest i don't know when she is going to give me her love, BUT MY heart is giving out.

I just need her to show it all.

The woman of my reality

Hello, my sweet how you been.  
I know you surprise to see me again.  
I know things went south between us.
I see you jumping into relationships trying to find someone who loves you unconditional.  
Giving your love to people whose doesn't deserve your presence.
Even after all the drama and pain you caused me I will still be there.  
as a friend I know everything about you that you trying to force somebody to know.  
Sometimes it hurts to see you getting with guys who don't love you like I do, please you like I can.  
I try not to get too close, because I want you to take me seriously.  
I see things and I hear stuff, but nothing is accurate unless you have proof.  
You getting dogged out by the guys you choosing and your heart is being abused.
I pull back from you, because I can't take the fuckery of you not seeing my heart.  
When you weep my heart cries out for you saying try me, because I won't put you through no pain.  
If you was my girl : Your body will be my playground, I will love you so hard that you would not go feel so wanted. I will take away your worries and pain. I want to make a difference in your life. Loving you will be so right and I will hold you so tight.
Its hurt being your friend noticing that you is not going to try me and you still picking the wrong fellas. Don't worry there is nobody going to take your spot.  
I'm not going to give your love to anyone else LIKE these others people just want to fuck and leave.
I pray that God will show who he want you to be with, but until then I will sit here and wait till you come back to me. While I'm waiting on you, I'm saving myself for that special moment with you. I'm here for you my love. See you later my sweet.

Moments, Like Bullets

the largest eyes,
needed to reflect heart’s light
back upon a jaded soul

purest laughter,
so proud, rings through space
to crack the darkness
of smoldering hearts

beautiful hands,
whose long fingers unknowingly wove,
notes of grace,
in songs of soft motion and albums of air

why was it so awkward?
why did we avoid each other’s gaze?
because then they would know,
they would know, they would know

it is better
to collect these golden hours,
given by time to honest souls,
rather than to steal them
with desperate gasps

thank you for these perfect moments,
perfect in my mind,
for they are mine to remember,
when I forget what emotions are

most sublime of these,
was the last one,
now only hours old,
stored in tight memory,
as i rode my motorcycle to the ocean

i raced
to catch the sunset
as the wind pulled tears from behind my visor,
the sand was cold,
i had to imagine warmth
and i remembered

the images that loop,
over onto themselves,
they play to me..sweetly,
with melancholy whispers
of bittersweet fortunes:

my head turned,
i let go of the handlebar with one hand,
i reached out,
speeding away from you,
i caught a last fleeting glimpse,
Of those big eyes,
a final wave,

and a blown kiss....lost to the wind

Moments Like Bullets II

The same wind has dried,
tears mined in parting sorrow.

Memories have dimmed,
but feelings have not,
as thoughts warm hearts.

We strive to harvest echoes,
of emoted feelings,
of moments divine.

Moments of thrilled contact,
seeking lost former joy and time.

I am held in circles of War,
paralyzed by the movement of forces.

Trapped in the crimson vortex,
suspended in wartime surges.

I stand ready for late rounds of battle,
the future has caught me...

Am I ready?
Wishes line up to come true,
the yield of my life waits not
& demands reaping

You,
injured in body and heart,
living in frustrated purpose.

Smoldering in waves of pain,
do not cloak yourself in darkness!

Stay Hale!
Remember, there is no promise
without hope!

To Heal is to know stillness,
to while and sit,
as the mind nurtures,
it can torture and tease
with images of movement and joy.

Stay Hearty!
Nourish and keep your body fit,
our health is our final treasure.

Recognize and protect your beauty!
Absorb light & warmth,
shun the Moon's cold mist.


Light preserves with Love,
darkness preserves with false promises of safety....

Remember we do not belong to ourselves,
but to those who care for and love us!

Remember me in desperate times,
know a soul cares
and fears for you.

Let no cloud dim those bright eyes!
Let no storm drown that tender heart!
Let no cold sting those graceful hands!

Embrace each ray of sunshine,
hold it close to you,
as if it were me.

As I hold close,
my Eastern dreams of you...

Moments Like Bullets III

Thus the reunion,  
meant to be a victory cry      
to a world that tried to deny,      
us a place in which to exist      
together, in the same time    
and place    
     
We touched,    
you held me so tightly,    
as if we    
were in a storm, and    
if you let go,      
you’d be lost...    
     
My heart filled,    
the dry cracks,      
filled with light,    
the old romantic ghosts,    
came to life, as if summoned      
by Christ    
     
You took my hand as we sat,    
held it so tight, I could feel our pulses    
beat in triumph!    
     
Then the memories flooded in,    
the shared tragedy of the loss of Mary,    
the pain of your sickness and injury,    
you answered my question completely      
as to where you had hidden, and why      
you were silent...    
     
The wine’s spirit died,      
and tears came and shook our bodies,    
the other people looked in amazement,    
how could they be so sad on such a beautiful day?    
But you held on tighter and tighter....    
     
Your eyes told me,    
how you had suffered,      
and come back to my life,    
you said you never wanted to lose    
me again, you said this....    
     
Then I met your family,    
Father said he had heard so much about me,    
Mother took my hand in both of hers,    
Sister smiled and hugged me tightly,    
I felt welcome...    
     
Then we rode,    
the dream came true,    
the Atlantic whirled,    
in tribute to us, you held me so tightly,    
my heart pounded in your palm,      
you felt me take the deepest of breaths,    
so I could feel all of the it,      
I told you I loved you at a stoplight,    
you told me you loved me too...    
     
We walked on the shore,    
sat and watched the sun set,    
you began to get cold and buried you head    
on my chest as we stood so close,    
you held me so tightly,      
as if we were in a storm,    
and if you let go,      
you’d be lost...    
     
My mind reeled,      
I wondered and dreamed      
while awake,    
of love, of love, of love,    
love I had come to mourn as dead    
and not for me....    
     
Love as I had thought I knew      
as a young man, decades ago,    
my head spun as I allowed myself to fall    
again, into that deep warm......trap    
     
Then you spoke of him,      
the young veteran,    
you’d known for years,    
how you’d finally overcome    
the fear of being hurt,    
in his arms,    
in his eyes,    
while in mine,      
my arms,      
while looking into my eyes....    
you were moving,    
to be with him,      
but never wanted to lose me again,      
lose me.....lose me....lose....    
     
I held back my words,      
and nodded, and wished    
all blessings on you,      
we walked back to the bike,      
I started it and pulled on the helmet  
pulled down the shield,    
like a lid on a tomb it snapped shut,    
the wind again, came to me,      
and blew tears away into the salt air
as it had done on the opposite coast
those many years ago, when I said goodbye
while riding away...    
     
They dried by the time,    
we got back to your parents,    
and I said I love you one last time,    
you said it too...and you held me,    
so tightly,      
as if we were in a storm,    
and if you let go,      
you’d be lost...    
     
Then came the silence again,    
no contact, no words,    
no promised presence,    
no anger, no sadness,      
no strength, no weakness,    
no regret, no shame,    
just silence...    
     
No greater insult,      
than silence, no deeper hurt,    
than silence....      
     
My fault, let it come,      
the pain again, the burning,      
what is this?  To turn to hope,      
only to watch it drop the hammer,    
and send one deep into my heart,    
slamming home the message,      
this is not for you, she is not for you...    
     
But she had held me so tightly,    
as if we were in a storm,    
and if she’d let go,      
she’d be lost...

Creatures of Fire

We swan-dive into the volcano, burning;
We’re creatures of the fire,
Mingled male and female, yearning
For the heat, the sweet explosion of desire.
I splash into the pleasure, all consuming;
I’m joyfully insane,
My passion for you deep, and fully blooming;
Long after, sweet warm flickers still remain.
You make my body sizzle with your kisses,
And yet there’s so much more;
My heart is kindled, too; It knows what bliss is,
This closeness that I’ve never felt before.
My body and my heart belong to you;
I’m peaceful and complete.
I see more adventures coming for we two,
We creatures of the tender fire and heat.

Secret Verses

I can write you a thousand poems,
And you would never even know it,
Like a ghost writer, unaware I’m there,
You would never ever notice it.

I can compose for you an endless prose,
And the lyrics wouldn’t even do it justice,
In each rhyme reading between the lines,
The innuendos would hint it’s about us.

I can devise sonnets about your eyes,
And still not find the appropriate words,
I can go insane trying to ease the pain,
When creating a multitude of chords.

But I will keep on trying even when I’m dying,
To spill the thoughts of how you make me feel,
I’ll pour my every drop of inspiration there,
While I’m alive my pieces would be concealed.

Then you’ll discover some hidden gems,
My clandestine and special secret verses,
When my body is lowered into the ground,
Then those works will come up to the surface.

To That Boy

To the first boy I ever fell in love with.
I hate you
Before I met you I knew what I wanted in this world
I was going to be a rough and tough football player
But now I’ve discovered my passion for the arts
I knew the kind of girl I wanted to marry. a rule abiding, scientist who could always appreciate a good discussion about politics
But then I met you
A rebel pothead who couldn’t name three presidents, and I love it. I love everything about it
I hate you
I was going fly out of this small town and never look back.
Now I don’t want to leave but I must
Leaving no longer feels like an accomplishment
it feels like a punishment for a crime I have not committed
The first time we kissed I never hated you more
This was wrong I thought
But it felt so right
Your lips rewriting everything I know
For the first time in my life tommorow didn’t matter
All that mattered was us
Jesus fucking Christ I hate you
I hate you
I hate you
I wish I hated you
But I don’t
I love you
I wish I didn’t love you

Once by SamiBmuse

Once
I had it
Stars sparkling within my eyes
Mind drifting with thoughts only of you

Your touch sending a million shivers across my skin
Breath shallow as we became one
My head laid softly upon your chest

Your fingers dancing like butterflies
As we lay in the moonlight
It glitters across our skin dancing as the angels sang above

And then darkness fell
You stopped
Holding me
Touching me

The stars left my eyes and I saw you laid bare
Alone, I thought the loss of you would tear me apart

But now I saw the restless wanting in you
I could never be enough, you prowl like a wolf in the night hunting
Until you have your prey to play with
Devastation in your wake

I run, free and lost in the wildernes
But I am free
I am free
I am no longer the prey
I stop running and look around

Beauty everywhere
My eyes widen as I take in the cool air within my lungs
Life continues and I am reborn again
I no longer need to run.

A New Feel

I wish this pillow was your chest these sheets your hands
holding me close and comforting me till the end
you let me in, I looked around feeding me with your space and sound
overflowing with new feelings on how real life gets...and we haven't really kissed yet
I close my eyes to go to sleep but I see your face and start writing this
Bury my head under my pillow to make you go away but I can't let you go
thinking of you leaves me gushing awakening my heart to start beating
the feeling that started when you mixed your heart with mine
don't ever want it to end I'm just right beside you lingering
not to see the end of the line and say we will meet again
cause I know as soon as you walk away I'll start missing you right then
but that helped me realize the more I miss you the more I want you in my life

I'm not going to lie I still have my doubts
but no one is perfect and it's the chance that counts
