Our Winners



Name of Image
Name of Image Two AngelsTwo angels anchored to the wint’ry floor
Alone at last; sweet ev'rythings drift nigh
Straight-jacket wings, down fingers I adore
My feathers ruffled, longing so to fly
But whisp’ring angel, why won’t you take flight?
Snow curtain lifts; betrays his shackled feet
The weather dips, you won’t survive the night
In such ferocious wind and lack of heat
He hugs the fence, his fingers brush my cheek
Refusing tears won’t stop my being drowned
He knows goodbyes were never meant to speak
I bite and break the chain that leaves him bound
Two fallen angels steal the form of geese
But none confined the other can’t release

Name of Image Trust is Hard to RepairTrust is Hard to Repair
15-2-13
Healing came with your words.
Words like ‘future’ and ‘love’ and ‘kids’.
It was only the second day we had spoken,
But you had ‘fallen in love’
With my voice and personality...
...”sing with me,” you said,
And I sang – our voices blending in harmony.
Pain came with your words.
Words like ‘friends’ and ‘distance’.
It was a week later,
But you were distracted while I was distraught...
...”goodbye,” I said,
And they were relieved when I came back.
Confusion came with your words.
Words like ‘mistake’ and ‘sorry’ and ‘never again’.
A few days later,
But you would never do it to me again...
...”trust me,” you implied,
And against better judgement I believed.
Numbness came with your words.
Words like ‘friends’ and ‘find myself’.
Again a week later;
A promise broken...
...

Name of Image :: More Than You'll Ever Know ::Does it make you proud
When you're the cause of someone's tears?
Does it bring you joy
Every time you insult the innocent?
Do you know what you do
When you speak with your vicious tongue?
Do you realize what happens
Every time you laugh at another's sorrow?
You see a woman with male friends
And you accuse her of craving sexual attention.
You notice a boy wearing glasses
And you tease him with the name "four-eyes."
There's a group of peace lovers;
You proclaim they're annoying hipsters.
The teenage boys who love each other;
You tear them asunder by calling them abominations.
Do you find pleasure
In being the source of a poor soul's agony?
Do you even think
Of what the consequences could be?
Does it satisfy you
To make someone feel inferior to you?
Does it quench your thirst
Whenever you rule over the oppressed?
If a young man loves writing poetry,
Immediately you dismiss him as a lonely loser.

Name of Image The Mask I MadeThe Mask I Made
17-2-13
Words of pleasure, words of hope,
Words of a future and of love.
Words strung together on a rope;
Useless, meaningless words.
Promises made, trust restored,
I’ll never do that to you again.
Words to heal and adore;
Useless, meaningless words.
Words to treasure, words to heal,
A sore heart believing in love again.
Words of trust to make a deal;
Useless, meaningless words.
Trust is broken, words mean naught,
You spoke in lies; silver tongued snake.
You have no idea of the pain you brought;
Useless, meaningless words.
You called me beautiful, and I believed,
You talked of a future, spoke of true love.
Then you broke my trust, didn’t perceive
The hurt I hide; the mask I made.

Well done to all – we had a lot of entries this time around which made it a good contest. Many thanks to our judges and to all who entered. Remember, we will be having a poetry forms challenge in March and then perhaps a Spring/Easter contest in April. I will keep you updated.

Ciao

You deserved it - I was hoping it would be you (not that I have any favourites at all...:paranoid:...) or the person who came third. I didn't expect mine to place as high as it did.
