Her eyes were like a full moon.
Her smile was warm as the morning sun.
Her heart is clear like the morning dew.
Girlfriend.

She has calm and beautiful eyes as a full moon.
Her smile is warm as the morning sun.
Her heart is clear like the morning dew.
Girlfriend.

I want to be the very best, like to one ever was.
To locate them is my real quest, to earn them is my cause.
I will travel across the site searching far and wide.
Teach Armor Games to understand the power that's inside.

Armor Games, it's you and me. I know it's my destiny.
Armor Games, you're my best friend on a site we must defend.
Armor Games, a theme that's true. Our gaming will pull us through.
You quest me and I'll quest you.
Armor Games! Gotta earn them all! Gotta earn them all...

Every quest along the way, with courage I will face.
I will earn them every day to claim my rightful place.
Come with me. The time is right. There's no better theme.
Arm in arm, we'll earn the quests. It's always been our dream.

Armor Games, it's quests and me. I know it's my questiny.
Armor Games, you're my quest friend, on a site we must defend.
Armor Games, a quest that's true. Our questing will pull us through.
You quest me and I'll quest quest.
Quest quest quest.
Gotta quest quest questing quests.

Bonus "just for fun" poem:

Five, seven and five
Syllables for the haiku
But I'm bad at counting

The men took up arms
From lands afar
They swore by their blood
And steel their blades
However as time fades
There came a flood
No man was left ajar
as they died in open arms

All this for some land
A small barren land
Not a tree in sight
It was a blight
All those bodies
Left for nobodie

Winner of this round is guaranteed a quest.

Next theme will likely be "unrequited", not necessarily love but unrequited whatever you want.

I'll just leave this here.


a smile and step, and down the aisle
a listless gaze and all the while
youâd see the sun but not the dawn
and by the time the red is gone
that gaze has turned to milky glass
gilded, turned to grey-black ash

For the November general poetry contest

A month to be recalled
For what, it's beauty?
A tricky month I seem to overlook

Do great oaks spring up then?
Does time pass just the same as all the rest?
Snow doesn't fall that often

I guess November's just a gentle month,
Not like the cackle of October or the bitter shake of December
Not like the revelrous newness of January

November is a gentle month
