    Default Poetry Contest: Theme: Change: VOTING!

    Voting!



    It's time for voting! I've decided that as long as there are enough entries for it, there will be a first, second, and third place winner, as decided through voting. Out of the remaining there will also be a "moderator's pick." As I write very little poetry myself and have less knowledge in the area, the moderator pick will be selected by Princess Ai, as she is the former forum moderator. In the case of this first contest I received a total of four entries, meaning the fourth place contestant will receive the "Ai's pick" by default.

    Prizes will be awarded as follows:
    First Place: 100,000 points, a reading on Ai's Corner, and possible inclusion in the IntuitionGFX monthly magazine
    Second Place: 50,000 points
    Third Place: 25,000 points
    Moderator's/Ai's Pick: 10,000 points and a reading on Ai's Corner

    Voting for this contest will follow the same format at that of the just-completed fiction contest. Please follow these directions:

    Send me a PM with the entry you think deserves first place, the entry you think deserves second place, and the entry you think deserves third place (so you are nominating three separate entries). Also include a comment as to why you have selected that entry for each place. You'll want to think about all factors that make up good writing while you're reading the entries. Your pick for first place should be the one you think is ultimately the best-written in all regards.

    The PM you send me should look something like this:

    First Place: Entry __ (Comment on the entry)
    Second Place: Entry __ (Comment on the entry)
    Third Place: Entry __ (Comment on the entry)

    General questions can be posted in the main contest thread, or PMed to me. Voting is set to close on Sunday the 12th of October, 12:00 midnight EST.

    Default Entry #1

    Entry # 1


    Heart Prism Change

    When a single heart beats
    Alone, under the red sky
    A scarlet September notice,
    Brings it's hidden fears alive

    From what I once believed in
    To what chaos I see now,
    Such a long drawn introspection
    So little the Gods will allow

    I see the image stirring
    Life is a broader view,
    Because of it's never ending flux
    It sends itself to death so new

    And again it arises
    Reborn into a new state
    With sighs of passion re-aligned
    The Goddess will create

    A like world in constant motion
    Again, as though life is a routine
    It's lifeblood being crystal ocean
    Refilling life's great canteen

    So much is inside so little
    Yet we cannot see,
    The strings that connect us all
    It's how we break at the seams

    And like the world in a cycle
    We return to our old lands
    Whether we originate from the forest
    Or the golden desert sands

    Like the flowers or the stone
    Our hearts are ever changing,
    Like the moon and the sun
    Our hearts are ever shifting,
    Like a feather or a thorn
    Such change is undulating-
    It's capricious charm is a prism

    Entry # 2


    Untitled

    the ticking of the clock
    the clicking of the lock
    doors are falling
    time is stalling

    if this is new, then i dont want it
    if this is how it's going to be,
    then i'm afraid of it

    take this away
    the changes arent becoming
    such a pretty face,
    downcasted shadows

    forget it, just forget it
    let me go,
    i'm not ready for this

    Default Entry #3

    Entry # 3

    Odysseus

    I was a poor boy a skin dappled farmer
    A boy who was walking in the cool breeze of grain
    And then came the wind of the city and armor
    Now I am bloodied with flesh and with pain

    With the sad scent of sand in the air all around me
    I long for the taste of the flowers of spring
    And the song of the mortars and songs of my father
    Twist inside me while I dance on a string

    But why in the world is there a call thatís worth dying
    And where is the silence in the gunfire fray
    I watch as the people pass onwards all crying
    Bearing their husbands to the ground where they lay

    I hear as some curse me and I try not to sigh
    As the sun it is judging like a great fiíry eye
    And if there was a way to escape from this prison
    Of sand and of sadness and run and Iíd fly

    But when I return to my garden of awnings
    And talk to my father who is now passing on
    He will say he donít know me then jump the veil yawning
    And Iíll bury him deep before walking on

    For my old town ainít a home now for no one
    Save the dreams of a child that are now all but gone
    And Iíll head to the city, the steel mausoleum
    And Iíll rent myself out to the local museum

    You made me Change

    When you look at me
    What do you see?
    A girl whoís trying too hard
    And doesnít know who she should be?
    Do you see a frightened girl?
    Whoís too scared to be herself
    Around you?

    'Cos Baby
    You make me want to
    Change
    Make myself better all for you
    Watcha gonna do?
    Will you let me
    down?
    Or will you let me love you more?
    Please let me love you more.

    I look
    At myself in the mirror
    And I donít know what i see
    Pieces have chipped away
    Canít believe this is me.
    What have i done to myself?
    I canít breathe anymore
    I need to be whole again
    Before I lose the rest of me.

    Baby you
    Made me want to change
    Make myself better all for you
    What am I to do?
    I let myself down
    Just to be loved by you
    I need to be loved by you
