The competition is open,right?

Yes. Yes it is.

Hey just wondering with the word while, does that count as one or two syllables?

The dictionaries say 1, but, like "fire" (faar/fai-yer), I'll count it in the participant's favor. Not sure on acmed's ruling.

Foe Her spirit lies within Us.

8 Syllables.

Don't Fear the Reaper
Acmed don't fear him,
He'll take your soul soon enough.
Meanwhile stare him down.
~Aimed at Acmed thanks for helping with the theme XP.

Don't Fear the Reaper
Underneath the eye
Lies a comforting presence
No reason to flee

You'll have to forgive me here. I'm not exactly someone who's done a lot of poetry and I realise I've probably messed up somewhere. :/

Fear not Lady Death.

Foe Her spirit lies in Us.

Ever,she is Us.

Thanks to Palpatine for the correction.

Silent, courageous,
Did he stand before them - his
Heart shivered with dread.

Don't Fear the Reaper

Death's faithful servants,
Take us in a ghostly haze,
And it is gentle.

Existence beloved
Fearful for the absolute
A darkness of peace

Pulling Out

Massive death payloads,
Shatters our innocent lives,
Watch them flee far now.

From the eyes of an Afghani civilian. Glad to see the soldiers go. I expect the judge to know why Reaper is relevant....

And now for something... completely different.

A melodic riff;
sound of the azure mollusk,
cowbell fills the air.

I'm sorry, I had to with that title. When else could I enter something like this?
