This entry is for the general poetry contest.

There was an old man from Barbados,
who wanted to sell some potatoes.
He tried hard as he could,
none sold as they should.
For he was actually vending tomatoes.

This is for the General Poetry Competition;

Touch of Truth,
The ripplse in these ponds.
The broken bonds.
The hatred in between all this tact.
The final blood pact.
The Touch of Truth.

Lives, torn apart.
So many broken hearts.
Bridges burnt to the ground.
The truth, lost then found.
The Touch of Truth.

And this is for haiku;

Broken Bonds

Bridges, burning down.
Losing focus in this world.
When all bonds are snapped.

This is for the Haiku contest

seasons change wildly
friendship lost some old some new
lay to rest your mind

on a personal note this is the first Haiku I have ever written and I am not sure if I understood the structure correctly

Haiku:

Oh, how I loathe thee
For I cannot hold pen
I suck at haiku

Touch of Truth
This poem is for the General Poetry contest:

Touch of Truth

I love you (When you stroke my hair)
I love you (When you show you care)
I love you (When you laugh out loud)
I love you (When you leave the crowd)
I love you (When you hug me tight)
I love you (When we dance in the night)
I love you (When you say, "You're mine")
I love you (But only some of the time)

This Entry is for the General Contest

Based on achievement unlocked 2

Running, Jumping, Killing myself.....
Flying, Buying, Pooping Pastries on a shelf....
I do this all for the achieves...
But when i get it all....What will i be?
I'm Just an elephant....
Why am i Blue?
Trying to Escape
Im not done here....
That feels....Too true
Using WASD as controls....
Teleporting....with no control
Running on my wheel....
Stop....
Backwards I spin......
What will happen....
When i win?
Will I go and turn to Dust?
Will You keep playing,
Till I must?




For Haiku

Death is a chaser
You run from him, Your Whole Life.....
Everyone does

When You run too Long
You are suddenly Alone
Everyone got caught

When does the Chase Stop?
When will you open your eyes?
All of your friends died

Death becomes a friend,
For, Everyone else is gone.
Then you stop running


Hope this is good :)

Pretty sure you can only submit a single stanza for a haiku.

This is for the general poetry contest :P
---------------------------------------------------

Once a lie within my face,
The pain at a constant pace.
Now it haunts me in my place.
Killing me without a trace.
Tell me, my child
Why does this seem so wild.
Please stop right now
Before it gets around
How an opposing act of truth you may say
Something not only used in May
Truth is a blessing I have to admit
Doesn't it just like to tick?
Please give it a try my son
For your lesson may have just begun
A touch a truth is not a statement
Its even something that is pretty ancient
Now you get it, I was getting quite impatient.
------------------------------------------------------
:D

How Winter Has Been

Good winter has been,
spring i hope is to be great,
yet spring is to come.

General Contest:

How Winter Passes:

Summer was hot and dry,
Spring was so nice I could cry,
Fall had some wonderful leaves,
But Winter was more than I could believe.
Still it went quite fast,
Oh, how I wish it would last.
Oh, how winter passes.

They each have chosen their path
Their bond is broken
