The Open Blue Sky
Right above your heads-the Blue

This is for the haiku contest
                                   
                  a chain has broken
                  the bond is lost forever
                  two people depart

This is for the General
[i]A touch of truth,
brings the proof,
that me not I,
ate the blueberry pie.

Two were together
One, asleep and never woke
Together to sky

GENERAL POETRY
__________
The fraud lived a life
of joy, mischief, and
Bravery.

He had a friend,
a peasant,
who lived in the fields of wheat and poverty

The war came,
causing everyone
to take-up
arms.

During the battle
The fraud and his friend were struck with a sword
falling toward the ground,
Laying
There.

Healers rushed to the fraud's aid
But the fraud shook his head,
and said;

"Take him instead,
he is the rightful heir of the throne,
I am nothing but a fraud"

The healers rushed to the peasant's aid,
leaving the fraud
Laying.
There

This is for  the general poetry contest.

Sunday afternoon.
9 years old
a brief break from homework.
Online games. My escape to Eden.

Just 10 minutes,
then 20.
hooked.
I found love online.

Love? more like lust.
Soon eyes sting, back aches,
fingers rust.
social awareness turns to dust.

Now, i am a rotting corpse.
I should have seen,
before selling my soul to the screen
that there was so much more i could have been
instead of this left right, up down, click machine.

I think that I should play no more.
On Thing Thing 3 or Age of War
but what's to do outside my door?
The real world is such a bore.
I crawl back in, craving more
switch on, log in.
until fingers sore.

What a sorry tale i must tell
of how from freedom
down i fell
and came crashing through the gates of hell,
too deep for you to hear me yell
so then i lived, inside my shell.

But a happy ending?
"How can it be?!"
Well I was in chains,
but now, I'm free,
I found a way back home you see,
for when it occurred to me i had the key
to a nicer place, with no rich or poor,
no parents  yelling at my door
no death or hunger for evermore.
no time was wasted,
and at half past four i climbed the steps, to the top floor,
of that brand new giant mega store.
I stepped out through the fire door.

Level 100. I said, this is it
my time has come to save and quit.
I walked to the edge.
the sky was grim
but a smile appeared above my chin.
and then it grew into a grin
for soon i would be cleansed of sin
the last boss fight is almost done
and as i took one more step, i said.
"I win".

General Poetry

Objectifying with bleak desperation,
Their curs├ęd words of piercing temptations
Full of barked claims of perceived divination
That announces my impeding ****ation

They shout, with their giant voices booming.
I shrink, fearing the dark light looming.
They hush, with calm tales of unconditional love.
I grow, with curious thoughts to speak of.

Their truth they cling on to, ready to defend,
But to my truth, jabbing questions they do send!
My anger burning, could their persistence bend?
Or must I stay tormented til days end?

Upon a lone moment of seclusion,
I begin to ponder their delusion.
But lo! Sudden insight lets my inner eye see
The judgement I too threw maliciously

I resolve, with immediate resolute
To find agreement within this wicked dispute.
For alas, neither party can truly refute
The truths which would result the others mute

Quick note..the line "Upon a lone moment of seclusion" is not saying a being alone in a moment of seclusion..but calling the moment of seclusion a lone one..as in, a very rare opportunity
