People one more thing. Make sure that I can pm you because already i have two people that i can't pm. sweatdrop And i really think that it's important that I am able to pm you. xd Ok thats all blaugh .
Hey people. Um, i need like 10 to 11 more people to keep the prize money up. If not then it has to go down. Here are a few more things that some people were asking me about and are aloud to be. Cursing is aloud. Manly anything is aloud you just have to fallow the rules and all is good. Oh, and if your poem is really dark then please enter it.

If i have enough people enter and i end up with enough gold for all the prizes and have at least a 100 left I might end up having a 4th place winner. So hey, there may be 4 places and that meens you probably will be able to win as long as it's your BEST work. Well thats all thanks.
How does one pay you? o-o; A trading post pass...?

I hope that you all figured everything out. I would like to add that donations are welcomed, but are not forced. If you want to you can send me a small gold donation. I know that Arequ did and I thank you very much for that. biggrin . So if you want to, you may if not you don't have to. Just letting you know. And if people do end up sending small donations prizes will go up so it's not like I'm keeping the gold for myself. Believe I'm not selfish like that. Lol. Well thats all. I hope more of you people sign up. I would love to read wonderful poetry! 3nodding
OK people! Today is the final day to get me the money for everything. Peoms will be posted tomorrow, and this contest shall be closed for jugding. So you see the prize money, and it might go up if i am able to figure out some way to get more money for my winners. Lol. So, if you want to be in it, you have until I say its closed. Which will be my next post in here. It will probably be when I say its time for people to start posting their poems. Which wont be until tomorrow. I will change the tittle of this whole topic thing or whatever so everyone knows. Ok well, thats all.


There will be no one making any coments to any of the poems when they are posted. If you have to make a comment then pm me with it. 3nodding
Id like to join, please pm me when you come online
THE POEMS ARE DUE TODAY PEOPLE! biggrin NO ONE ELSE MAY JOIN! If you would like to comment on a poem that you feel should/should not win then pm me, i do not want to give away any hints to who might win! 3nodding

EDIT: POETRY CONTEST IS OVER!
My own world

When time was left,
I hoped to fly
Watching as my sigh's go by
Now looking back on what I have done,
And what I did wrong
A cold shatter
A hot platter
A burning of hell, in my soul
And what I do not know
As "It has begun"
My life in an upside world
Full of twirls
And how my mind was left to explore
I could care less anymore
Where I know I might die
And I continue to cry
In my own upside-down world...
It continues to clatter
My mind torn and tattered
I wonder if you knew
What I thought was true
Where my life is a lie
And I hope, you can fly
For, I am not worth the wait,
Of an awkward horrifying fate.
And this is all in my upside-down world.
Where I continue to look
For a white running Rabbit
Or a small little girl
Name the voice of Alice,
I still dont understand
The thoughts at hand
Or why I continue to look,
In that old, black book
And once again, I enter my world of magic.
What I must learn to confind,
In my small little head.
that my thoughts are almost, trying to be dead.
I sleep tonight,
Wondering tommorrow,
And I learn from a tune this is not sorrow.
My life is a set In a told acting,
And then I realize what to look
That my world, Is only a book
A book from a realm,
A book from a dream,
And so, to you,
Please rescue me.
I understand your loss,
And a forceful broken smile.
But I have been lost for quite a long while...
And so my dream, is left here.
In a sad forgotten drear,
And I enter this again, For my friend...
This my own upside-down world.
Forever

Lost in a world of hate
I look for my "one"
And its a long journey,
But, it's worth the wait
Tear after Tear
I am left,
I will wait,
I love you.... And you dont hear me.
Its quite simple, that im the one left
Can you define love?
As if its normal
Can you define normal,
Or, what is right..
Do you feel my pain?
Probably not, for I was left
Or is it, I was never taken.
I dont know
Im lost and confused in this world of hate
Im sorry, I was never right
But, I always have you
My light, whom I can look too
You bring me to smile, where most have to look.
My shining star in a black night
Can I, wish upon your star?
My own, is not as bright.
The legendary fight, and Where I kiss you good night.
I wont be there
For I was left in a world of hate
And Im confused, I am late
Like the White Rabbit in Wonderland
A labyrinth in the sky
And there I can fly
And while I still look for my "one"
This isnt quite fun
Ill soar and fly
Like an angel in the sky
And I wait for you......

Forever
Okay, well I guess I'm suppose to post it now.
Dance Team

We're the people you see,
Maybe holding a banner, or tumbling.
We're the ones,
Who keep the dance going on.
We're the ones who practice steps,
And learn to make up preps,
In the fear we might make a mistake.
We're not so well known outside of this,
But I'll assure you, we're not fake.

We're the ones who love to dance,
We're the ones who are on the Dance Team.
We're the people that will proform Jingle Bell Rock,
While the town Christmas tree is being lit.
We're the ones that love to dance.

You may see us in the paper,
(right on the front page!)
And you might see us on the stage.
You might hear our names read aloud,
And you see our marching crowd.

So what we're for a dance studio?
We do this 'cuz we love to dance.
So what we dance till our toes bleed?
We just do it 'cuz we love to.

Just watch our feet and legs,
Watch as they move,
Just in the perfect ways.

Look at our smiles,
They'll show you our love,
The love that's for dance,
And the love wee all share
The howling wind crys out in sorrow
The crystal tears of pain dripping off the cheeks like dew
Crimson blood spills down the arm
Of someone I once knew.

Distant eyes leads to the soul
of a being broken and tattered
Swirling mists cloud the eyes
as the soul is once again captured

Only a shimmer of hope remains
that the person who it onces was, is still alive
Beneath the shadows of the soul
hidden deep inside

It looks into the mirror
as the light of dawn approches
Recognition is casted into its eyes
and I see who I was once more
