Welcome to the newest contest on ArmorGames!

This is the new and improved version of both the Periodic Poetry Contest and the Haiku Contest. From this point out, both contests will be combined into one massive contest for everyone to enjoy! And as such, each user is allowed to enter is both contests with separate entries if they so desire, effectively doubling the odds of winning.
Each contest (One being general poetry and the other exclusively haiku) will have one winner every month. Every month, two winners (one from each contest shall be chosen and receive a merit for all their hard work. Show it off to your friends, gloat about it to your enemies! Tell your parents about it and confuse them! It's a win-win-win-win-win scenario, folks.

Rules

General Poetry Contest:
- It must fit the theme if the month (same theme as the Haiku Contest).
- It must be submitted by the deadline.
- It cannot have inappropriate language in it.
- It cannot be stolen (if you plagiarize, we will find you).
- The poem must be created for this contest
- A user cannot win twice in a row (though everyone is welcome to submit every month!)
- Only one submission per user will be accepted

Once a month a winner will be chosen from all the received entries. To begin, the Moderation/Administration Team will act as judges and choose winners. Subject to change depending on how well things go.
The winner will then make a comment on the ContestWinners profile to receive a merit.
(Original idea by ubertuna, itemized rules by DragonMistress, modified by Devoidless)

Haiku Contest
"A Haiku is a Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons."
Well, that said, here are the rules:
- It must fit the theme of the month (same as General Poetry Contest)
-The haiku must be original (no plagiarizing)!
- It must be submitted before the deadline
- It must be created for the contest (no using works previously written)
- One submission per user
- The same user cannot win twice in a row (but they are welcome to submit!)

Once a month a winner will be chosen from all the received entries. To begin, the Moderation/Administration Team will act as judges and choose winners. Subject to change depending on how well things go.
The winner will then make a post on the ContestWinners profile to receive a merit.
(Original idea and itemized rules by Maverick4, modified by Devoidless)
First Themes
The first themes to kick off this contest shall be:
- The theme for the General Poetry contest this run is "Touch of Truth".

- The theme for the Haiku contest is "Broken Bond".
Submitting an entry
Since there are two separate contests, users are required to mention in the post which contest they wish to use the entry for. Any entry without this is subject to not being entered into either contest.
Examples of how to clarify which contest an entry is for:

I'd like to enter this for the General Poetry/Haiku contest

Remember, each user is allowed to join both contests!

Here is my entry:

Tears run down my face,
I cannot find what I cannot replace,
Not even a trace,
Now there's no one left for me to embrace,
I remain in the same place,
Never again to see your face.

I wish I had one last chance to tell you.

Love
Over hard times will never fade,
Vastly assuring great aid,
Enduring throughout the roughest of terrains.

You will always hold a place near and dear to my heart,
Obstacles will come, but we will never part,
Undoubtedly, you are an incredible, irreplaceable work of art.

Here is my entry

Let enemies come
Bring me a shotgun
Here comes the sun
I shoot them bum bum

And the Apocalpse has begun
After hunderd of enemies dead
Boss was aproching with a railgun
He telled me Now you are dead!!

i need to go ammory
he attacked me with fury
i dodged his all his actions
And he took a arrow to his knee!!!

Lonely hopes fill the
Empty chasms of ice and
Chances but one last.

If the theme is the same for both, Here is my entry for the haiku

I gave you a chance
but you threw it in my face
Now all trust is gone

My general poetry entry

My last chance i throw
Into the jaws of tomorrow
It can wait another day

I run around, scared
Left unprepared
The time has just run away.

I take one last look,
at that poor empty hook
why couldn't you just stay?

The black box you're in
couldn't save you back then
while fire burned all around

You needed a break
so a plane you did take
and you left us without a sound

My Haiku entry, since I forgot to do one before:

What have we done here,
The path we were on was clear,
Now there's no last chance.

My haiku entry,

Fifty two weeks close,
Fifty one weeks done and gone,
Using this last chance.

My last chances poetry entry:

Though I was able through all the past year
I used up my chances, wasted my tears
I gave up the right to speak and to write
And instead used my time to bicker and fight.

Now all I'm left with are bruises and scars
The ghost of my passion has gone to the stars
For this new year I can only hope for the best,
Yet I know deep down, I'll waste it same as the rest.

Sorry it's so short.

This poem is for the General Poetry contest

Two Week left
Time I have

Seven Red X’s at a glace
One week to go
Time aplenty still.

Five more days
That’s not bad
I rather play

Three More days Now
I Don’t want to think about it
Hey that looks interesting

Two More days
Think of it as 48 hours or 2880 minute
But, Later I say

One Day
I feel ill
Thirteen Red X’s haunts my dream

8 Hours or 480 minutes
Better think of it as 28,800 seconds instead.
Oh, Who is calling me?

3 Hour, 180 minute, 10,800 second
I feel my stomach rolls
My hand shakes
Pules racing, heart pounding.

Better start now
Every Second Needed
Tick Tock, Tick Tock
Last Chance
