The link in the PMs doesn't work, at least not for me.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

look i just wrote on love and death


On Love

Wannabe Romeo needed a girlfriend.
He ran into a prostitute named “Juliet”
Whole night they made love.

On death

Go to a butcher shop.
Learn how to slit a nerve.
Go home and do it…


See how easy is this..

The 5-7-5 rule only counts if you speak or can write in japanese. When doing it in english you just have to have 3 lines with no more than 17 syllables total.

If you're going to be so pedantic we might as well force people to use a nature word in each piece too.

Live with it, it's not a ****ing international award-winning competition.

love
she moves like the wind
in the sails of a shipwreck,
crashes through my heart.

death
no one's smiling now,
'cause when one heart stops beating,
the rest follow suit.

nature
and then the sky fell,
and we drowned in empty seas
along with the sun.

Okies I have my three:

Love
Hearts that catch alight,
Under the full moons embrace,
Forever in sight.

Death
Cold and lifeless breath,
Lost in eternal darkness,
Welcoming the end.

Nature
Soft wind through the leaves,
Sunlit greens across the plains,
Take your breath away.


enjoy
#22
...if i look at mine now and think i wanna change them, because i wrote them in like 2 minutes in the post quick reply box thingo, can i?

i didn't really put enough effort into them, the death one is the only one i moderately like right now, and the first bit of the love one.

so can i?

if not fair enough... thanks anyway

Nature
Glistening Water
Devours Hell Forever
Like Night Consumes Day

Love
Relize when I Say
I will Kill You Savagely
I mean to love you

Death
Gone and Forgotten
I will laugh out of your waste
Not even worth it

Second line: 7 sylables
Third line: 5 sylables

ummm there was a sign up thread, sorry but you're not in it.
#28
Is there any way i can back out?
I havnt been in a good mood lately and i have been quite busy with homework to write pretty much anything. sorry.
#29
I will definitely be editing these before the weeks over, but I figure I might as well get something up. If the nature one isn't nature enough, let me know and I'll write a new one, I may do that anyway. The death one is a reference to when they used to drown people who they thought were witches, and if they died, then they weren't. Hope that helps it make more sense.

Here goes:

Love:

Your mouth sings a song,
And your lips trace out the words
Your face is a song.

Death:

If we drown then we
will know that we are dead and
they made a mistake.

Nature:

The tree blew down, west
It landed atop the house
The news vans were there.


My Guitars:
Fender Mustang.
Yamaha FG-413SL.

Hey Luke, when do I need to judge? Do you mind PMing me or telling me some other time, just so I don't miss out. Thanks a lot.
#32

You can never fucking trust Canada when Canada decides to report on world news that doesn't concern Canada. Canada is only in it for Canada's sake. Canada doesn't even know Batman.

Fuck Canada

stands tall in golden
majesty, slowly granting
its crown to the earth.

two lovers' hearts beat
one in time, each note entwined:
softest harmony.

rolls through peaks and lows
and drifts past each false cadence
to final resolve.
my name is matt. you can call me that if you like.
#37
when is this gonna get going...

well personally i think that if you lose points for entering a contest and not submitting a piece you should lose points for starting one and not setting it up... this should of been up 2 weeks ago. whats going on?
