So, I have 262 stars.

Thanks to everyone who starred my randomness, and in celebration, have a contest!

 

~ Rules ~

- up to three entries per person, and no cheating via alt accounts, please.

- your poems can be any type and, rhyming, structured, both, or neither. However, please make them at least long enough to be around 30+ seconds when read aloud.

- Try to be a good sport. If your poem doesn't win, it's probably because it would be better as a poem, not as a song.

- Don't be mean to anyone or anything in your poems

- When you post a poem, keep in mind that it will be posted on the internet so don't put anything in that you wouldn't like people to see.

- I have the right to disqualify an entry, but before I do that I will ask you to change or omit some parts.

- The deadline is May 31st, midnight, Pacific Time. Any entries submitted after that will not be considered.

 

After May 31st, I'll choose three poems to turn into songs. They'll be posted on YouTube and on dA.

That's all! Be creative, be expressive, and have fun!

The time zone for people who live near the Pacific Ocean. Washington (not D.C), Oregon, California, and Nevada, I think. We're 3 hours behind New York time if that helps.

I don't know what New York time is, either.

 

I mean, I know it's the time in New York and stuff, but I have no idea how timezones work.

THIS WON'T BE DEPRESSING I PROMISE

 

HOME: by Nightmare

 

I've been walking for forever

I've been running farther, farther

I've been climbing over mountains

But I've never reached the top

 

I walked a hundred miles

Just to see your face

 

I'm alive again

I'm running ever onward

Over rivers and through forests

But I've never felt happy

 

I ran a million miles

Just to come back home

 

When I was younger, I had dreams of

Fame and grandeur and the big stage

I did not want to stay at home

Too much ambition to contain

 

I climbed a billion mountains

Just to be back here

 

For the longest time, I wanted

Nothing more than to run away

Away from home and to the world

I had a mission

 

I drove a trillion roads

Just to see this again

 

Now I'm older, I have realized

That I won't make it on Broadway

And so I decided to come back

Home

 

Just to come back home

Just to come back home

Just to come back...

 

Home...

Mark of the book

might enter later

it's a free verse

doesn't rhyme

probably wouldn't make a good song

literally the only thing that makes it a poem is the fact that I wrote it with lines and stanzas

but idk maybe I'll enter

Dark as Night

 

The depths ahead beckon to my rage with silver tongues

Thinking I'll give in to the delusion

Behind me is shadow and pain

Before me only grey confusion

Door's locked, they think I'll try to be free

Knowing the height out the window is too high for me

 

Staring out over the night

Seeing nothing but darkness

Nothing but uncertain futures

Shattered dreams,

Broken stars!

Staring out the window knowing it's time to leap over the edge

Into the canyon

 

My captors, they kept me here knowing I cannot escape

It's a chance they were more than willing to take

But me, I think it's time to build some wings

Although all I have is grief, fear and hate

The light has long been lost to me

Only obsidian murk as far as I can see!

 

Staring out over the night,

Seeing nothing but darkness

Nothing but uncertain futures,

Shattered dreams,

Broken stars!

Staring out the window knowing I must leap the edge

Into the canyon

 

Past the blackness, past the rage

Past the oceans of bitter pain

What do you see in me?

I imagine just the fact that I'm to blame

For the blood and insanity!

 

 

No matter what they say, I knew how to love

I did and it cost me all my world

The galaxies of darkness before me

All spiral to a single shard of light...

First I must heal myself 

And then I can take flight!

Take flight...

 

into the darkness....

 

 

 

 

 

(Note that this was actually written with the purpose of being a song.)

i'll call her elizabeth

liz for short

-

i still remember her birthday

january 8th

we were sitting at her kitchen table

eating angry birds cupcakes

mine was chocolate

she didn't like chocolate cake

but she knew i did

she ordered half of them chocolate just for me

she postponed her party so i could come

she opened her presents

we made hats out of the tissue paper

we danced around the kitchen wearing them

i laughed so hard

we all did

we played just dance

her favorite songs to dance to were party rock and california girls

she always won those songs

-

she was in my 3rd grade class

that's when we met

3rd grade

she was in my 4th grade class too

5th grade, we shared a recess

6th, gym class

7th, nothing

7th was when I started losing her

8th was when she changed her name

"liz-"

"i go by eliza now. hearing liz feels like a stab in the eye"

-

i loved her like a sister

gosh, i miss her now.

phileo

it means brotherly or sisterly love

that's what we had.

we might as well have been sisters

i fairly lived at her house

-

she had a laptop

and an ipod

the case was blue

her phone case was green

green

that was her favorite color

neon green to be exact

her glasses were green too

she had a life size wolf cutout on her wall

her wall was painted green

she loved wolves

i did too

because of her

-

3rd grade she was my hero

role model

idol

i was thrilled we became friends

that's why it hurt so much when she changed

-

in 4th grade she had a crush on a boy

we called him deer

both for the pun on dear

and so we could talk about him

and he wouldn't know

-

we drew comics

called air

air because it was an acronym for the characters' names

in 5th grade she had a crush on han solo

she loved star wars

-

she was the kind of person who said

"i'm hot- in both ways"

when it was warm outside

she was my best friend

-

her hair was blond

she hated it

her eyes were green

she loved that

it was her favorite color after all

-

she was fast

she ran track

she said i was fast

so I ran track too

-

she was so smart

and creative

she used to write stories

stories about wolves

she called the series 'wolf wars'

i loved those stories

i even wrote a ripoff book based on it

'pack battles'

-

6th grade

we were walking laps in gym class

talking about a story we wanted to write

together

fire and ice

that's what we would call it

-

she had a white fluffy cost

it had a faux fur-lined good

she wore it almost every day

even when it was way too hot

-

she had a sister who died

she never did tell me her name

they had made jewelry together before she died

there was one beaded bracelet left

and she treasured it

-

6th grade was the year

our friendship started breaking.

-

she hit me in the arm

'lightly', she said

it hurt

"you're weak."

insults

-

7th grade

that's when the friendship shattered

-

she was walking behind me 

talking to another friend

she decided to get my attention by throwing her lunch at me

not a big deal by any means

but i snapped

-

we have only spoken once since then.

"sign this?"

she gave me the book cover we were all signing

"only if you'll sign mine."

-

it has been almost a year since we spoke last

only slightly less than the amount of time it has been since I saw her in person

-

she doesn't know i wear contacts now

she doesn't know i cut my hair

she doesn't know i forgave her

she has no idea i miss her

gosh, I miss her.

Here's mine:

 

The Hymn of Broken Hearts

 

The sky is obsidian

And the stars are diamonds

As I gaze upon the moon.


It stares back at me,

An unblinking eye

In the deep dark night.


The stars spin together

As tears cloud my vision.

And as the heavens blur,

I see the faces

Of long lost friends.


I gaze upon the memories

Written in the stars.

With a pang of nostalgia,

I remember

The good old days.


I think of the times we spent together,

Gazing into the skies,

Wondering if we truly were alone in this universe.


A tear falls from my eye

A single diamond on my face

That makes me wonder,

Can we go back

To the way it used to be?


The night birds swoop,

Spreading a spider’s web of darkness

Over the sinful world.


The night creatures call to one another,

Singing songs of joy and friendship

As if the world was still perfect.


And I wonder why you left me,

All alone,

In the dark and endless night.


And so I wrote this ballad.


This hymn of broken hearts.

#CloneWarsSaved

 

Rise from the shadows

Make a fist of the pain.

Rise from your grief

Before it grows into your bane.

Climb from the prison

That you've built in your soul.

When the night has arisen,

Then your legend will be whole.

Stay Back 

 

I can see it, in the distance

Breaking down what lays ahead

Coming here, closer it travels

Stay back, I will save you

 

It destroys all of sees, paving nothing behind

It is coming, coming for you

I stand, ready to defend

Stay back, I will save you

 

It is almost here, I can see its eyes

Pure black, no whites inside

I will protect you, save you from death

I will save you stand back

 

It is here, the breath in my face 

Roaring in my ear

Howling to take you away 

 

It is my heart.

This is my first one:

The Dragons

 

Fire and flame, talons and tails,

Wings and gorns, treasure and scales,

Flying high, amidst all the clouds,

Flies a dragon, soaring up without sound,

Silent wingbeats, follow the song of nature,

Plumes of smoke join the air,

Up in the sky, dragons do fly,

And although you don't see them,

I know they're there,

Storms of fire,

Thundering roars,

Incredible creatures,

Unique features,

Wondrous dragons,

Wings of the sky.

 

 

I'm sorry, it's really bad

This is my second one:

 

It started at the age of five,

I was at a new place,

They called it 'school',

Not a single familiar face,

 

I didn't know what to do,

She seemed pretty nice,

And funny,

And smart, I didn't think twice,

 

We sat together that day,

And the next day,

And the day after,

We became 'BFF's she said "All the way"

 

We never faught,

We we always laughed,

She was my inspiration,

This was till' the end, but it's just where it starts,

 

In third grade she came up to me,

She was crying,

I asked what was wrong, she said she was leaving,

For the rest of the year, time was flying,

 

The day came,

It was the last day of the year,

Everyone was happy but two,

I said goodbye trying to not have tears,

 

We could see each other still right?

But wrong, I hardly ever did,
We split and I was at the beginning again,

I had a friend for one term, then she slid,

 

I searched, and found a group,

But that's where it got bad,

They fought, they swore,

They judged, but it was all I had,

 

I was with them for two years,

I tried so hard,

But it just didn't work,

I was just their annoying glass shard,

 

I moved away when they got their boys,

Seventh Grade!

I thought it was crazy,

New, hard things everywhere and friends that fade,

 

I was alone for months,

Sitting by myself everyday,

I got a job at the school library,

But it was only one day away from dismay,

 

Then I found them,

Or at least so I thought,

But as soon as I joined,

They fought,

 

One left,

And the others, well,

It's hard to say but they changed,

They confused me, and I felt as though I'd been through enough hell,

 

I tried to leave them,

In a gentle way,

But they made me feel so bad,

I felt guilty everyday,

 

I try to still,

To find the right friends,

But then things started to look okay,

However, that's not where it ends,

 

I started to feel nervous,

Homesick, bad,

Pressured, overloaded,

Guilty and sad,

 

My old group hung over me,

I felt like an intruder to the place,

I still do,

It's still happening, as if they can't bare to see my face,

 

I'm trying to work it out,

I know what to do,

I just have faith,

Faith in my God who will help me get through,

 

I will get through it all,

With Him I know I can do anything,

He will help me, guide me,

And I can try to stay happy, not hoping, knowing.

 

Sorry it's really long,
