This is for the Haiku Contest:
Anguish fills my heart
The one I once loved will not
Ever see me cry

And this is for the General Poetry Contest:
Hide no more, for the truth is uncovered,
Run no more, for the secret is no longer,
Light has ignited the lies and fabrications,
Burning away to ash, because justice is stronger.

OK, thank you! :)

Well, they haven't post the judging yet so, you might still be counted. It's up to those who are running the thread and the judging though.

Hey Devoidless, have the mods decided on winners yet? I believe this might be the first time there's been a judging by committee, so to speak.

Almost. Taking longer than expected, sorry folks. First run so a couple snafus here and there are bound to happen.

It might help to tell the next theme early, but not allow submissions until the old judging is posted. That'll give us something to do while we wait.

By my count, there were 32 General Poetry entries, of which 21 seemed to fit the theme. And 38 Haiku entries, of which 31 seemed to fit the theme.

50-70 entries is a lot. But if you judged just 7 per day at about 10-15 minutes each* (an hour or two in total), you'd be done in 7-10 days.

*High estimate. Most shouldn't take more than 5.
