For the general contest:

I'm chasing a destitute darkness
A void that I identify as evil
But as I gaze upon it's dissimulation
I see what I've been chasing my life's entirety

I see it gawking at me from a metal slab
It is enclosed with a sheet to harbor the impurities that I fix there
I see it looks isolated and abandoned
But I also see in it's eyes, the triumph that has finally come with death

A war has erupt since birth in my mind
A war where many battles have been reconciled and put into play
I have set the proposition along many years of my mangled, contorted life
And permanently, I have won the battle that matters the most, the battle for my death

Haiku Entry:
It became shattered
Fear causing it to break quickly
A bond now broken.

I might write another one if I come up with something better.

Are titles desired? I remember that the Periodic Poetry Contest required a title, or something of the like.

Tiles aren't needed. Feel free to add one if you wish, yet don't feel like it is needed. Most of what I do is never titled. That's just how I roll.

So far we only have eight entries? Come on! I know everyone out there has it in them to write some fantastic poetry!

Hopefully caused is 1 syllable. Sorry about the mess up earlier. I stink with syllables.

Looks all good now!

I haven't posted a haiku yet, so I banged this one out. ^_^

You walk out the door
Said this is the end for us
Never felt so free

Not going to lie. It sounds like a Taylor Swift song.

Well, makes sense considering that I write a majority of her songs. I mean--um, huh. That's odd. XD
